Anderson Silva B-Sample Being Tested Due To Conflicting Results

Former UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva is waiting to hear from the Nevada State Athletic Commission whether or not he’ll be suspensed from action after his UFC 183 failed drug test five months ago, this is mainly due to two labs (SMRTL and Quest Labs) reporting totally opposite results.

From the Twitter page of Larry Pepe:

Source tells me there are conflicting fight night tests. SMRTL was positive (as SMRTL test was on 1/9) but Quest Labs did test same night close in time and Anderson was negative. SMRTL B sample being tested but results are not back yet. Either way, I would assume that Silva team will use the inconsistency of the two labs’ results to discredit the SMRTL positive test dated 1/9 and also point to SMRTL negative test dated 1/19 in arguing to NSAC that results are unreliable or, alternatively, that he should get reduced sentence. If you are wondering, yes, this is similar to Nick Diaz case where Quest & SMRTL were also in conflict.
