Wanderlei Silva Absent From Hearing, Ruling Postponed

Due to Wanderlei Silva not appearing before the Nevada Athletic Commission on Thursday, the board moved to delay hearing from “The Axe Murderer” on his decision to not take a drug test earlier this year.

The NAC suspended Silva’s fight license upon the Brazilian not taking the drug test, forcing him out of a planned meeting with Chael Sonnen.

Silva filed a motion to dismiss any possible disciplinary action against him by the board, but without his appearance, nothing was solved.

Earlier this year, Silva went before the NAC and admitted to taking diuretics to help with a wrist injury and those led to the decision to not take the test.
