Last month, Michael Bisping submitted a random drug test to the USADA and has reportedly been given the green light to fight Anderson Silva at UFC Fight Night 84.

Bisping, who has been an outspoken critic of performance-enhancing drugs over the years, posted the clean results on Instagram and mocked Silva in the process.

"When I get drug tested randomly. This is the result I get Anderson!"

"The Count" also jabbed at Silva at a recent media scrum to promote their upcoming fight in London.

Anderson Silva tested positive for steroids Drostanolone and Androstane after his 5-round clash with Nick Diaz at UFC 183. The former middleweight champion and UFC icon denied knowingly taking PEDs, and claimed that the results stemmed from a sexually-enhancing blue vial he received from a friend in Thailand.

Silva's defense was rejected by the Nevada Athletic Commission and the Brazilian was suspended for one year and faced $380,000 in fines. His unanimous decision victory over Nick Diaz was also later overturned to a No Contest.

Anderson Silva vs. Michael Bisping will headline UFC Fight Night 84 on February 27th at the O2 Arena in London, England.
