Alves also in drug testing quagmire?

16

Heard about this on the Dog: "A tale of two Thiago’s: Silva and Alves most likely cut from UFC 130 for steroid use Thiago Silva is still riding the wave of the notoriously outplayed You Tube footage of his Brandon Vera demolishing from UFC 125, but sometimes all good things come to an end. It has recently been reported that Silva has failed one of the two samples from the fight night claiming he had an illegal substance in his blood. This is yet another fighter to add to the roster of UFC men that are competing on a professional level with an illegal advantage. Oddly enough, Thiago Alves is in the exact same situation with his blood test scores not being spoken of from the John Howard fight at UFC 124 back in December. There was a list of fighters published that came back with clean test results, with every single one from that fight card listed...except for Thiago Alves. How frustrating these recent developments have been for fight fans as the Memorial Day UFC 130 card, held in Las Vegas as it was set up to be a monster of a card. Ironically, with both Thiago's scheduled to fight in that event. Silva was to face off against Rampage, and Alves against Rick Story. Thiago Alves has already fallen prey to the steroid lifestyle as he was suspended for eight months and fined $5,500 just following his winning performance at UFC 66."
