Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is having a hard time locking down a match up with Kelvin Gastelum as of late. The two fighters were initially set to face off at UFC 212. However, Gastelum was pulled from the event after failing a drug test for a marijuana metabolite.
Following the fight removal, the two fighters were rescheduled to throw down in the main event of the mixed martial art’s promotion debut in Shanghai, China at UFC Fight Night 122. However, Silva was pulled from the event after failing a USADA drug test. Now fight fans are offering their thoughts on the situation, with longtime UFC commentating veteran Joe Rogan now among them.
Rogan can be seen giving a brief comment on Silva’s second failed drug test in the video below:
Anderson Silva first failed a drug test back in 2015, overturning the fighter’s battle against Nick Diaz at UFC 183 to a no contest.
