Following UFC 101, an event that featured a main event of Anderson Silva moving up to the 205lb division to face Forrest Griffin, Griffin failed a drug test that was never made public.

“I failed my drug test I think for Xanax,” Griffin said. “I had a doctor's prescription, I was just, I didn't do it before the fight, I did it the night before, I was nervous and I couldn't sleep.”

When asked by MMAFighting.com's Dave Doyle why he never revealed the information, Griffin explained “What's the point? Why add humiliation to a bad situation?”
