Wanderlei Silva's disciplinary hearing postponed by NSAC

Wanderlei Silva's fate for running from a random drug test is still up in the air as the NSAC agreed to table it for a later date.

The most exciting item on today's Nevada State Athletic Commission meeting agenda was Wanderlei Silva's disciplinary hearing.

Silva is likely in a world of trouble with America's most influential commission, having ran from his gym to avoid a random drug test. He seems to be operating under the illusion that the situation is more or less nothing and has repeatedly talked as though it is over and has been issuing challenges for fights as though he isn't staring in the face of a lengthy suspension.

Silva's team filed a motion to postpone the hearing and, with the fighter not even bothering to attend, the NSAC agreed to table it for a later date.

With that being the only agenda item that stands out as being of major interest to UFC fans, the UFC's decision to stream the hearing on Fight Pass may have been a bad one.

Bleacher Report's Jeremy Botter put it best when he tweeted "These Fight Pass streams are expensive to produce, so I suspect UFC is not happy about this development. They weren't informed."
