As he continues to await a date for his hearing with the Nevada Athletic Commission, former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva is starting to get frustrated with feedback he has been hearing as of late.
“The Spider” took to social media recently, venting frustration about “lies and false accusations” he has been reading regarding his failed drug test at UFC 183 in January.
Silva wrote the following on his official Instagram page:
“About my doping case, I’m waiting for the commission and my lawyers. I’m not a cheater and I never had a juiced body. Just watch my fights in Japan, when I fought at 176 pounds because there was no 185 pound division, and the guys I fought cut from 220 to 207. So for those ‘experts’, go search real facts.
“I apologize to my followers and fans that give me strength and criticize me with the intention to help me instead of bringing me down, because I don’t want you to think that I’m being rude with you. I’m just tired of listening to lies and false accusations. I don’t live in a glass case, I’m not a saint and I never said I was the best. I always did what I love with truth, without overshadowing and lying to anyone. Unfortunately, I can’t please everybody because I’m not and I don’t wanna be unanimous.”
