Anderson Silva completed his 13-month recovery with a win over Nick Diaz that made for a feel-good story and a potential comeback for the former champion.
Maybe it was too good to be true.
Silva failed a pre-fight test, testing positive an anabolic steroid. But Silva wasn’t alone. Diaz also failed a test, this one of the post-fight variety for marijuana.
It’s news that has surprised many.
Still, jokes aside, this can't be. Anderson Silva? On steroids? This one hurts, you guys. It hurts like one of these hasn't hurt in a while.

Further testing will be done to confirm the results. Diaz and Silva both face likely suspensions if test results are confirmed. Check out www.TodaysKnockout.com for more MMA coverage.
