Anderson Silva

A couple of weeks ago, former world's best MMA fighter Anderson Silva said he was thinking about Olympic Games. His plan was to join the Brazilian Taekwondo team. However, “The Spider” is now focused on other things, said his manager Jorge Guimaraes.

"This Olympic thing has been discarded. Anderson won’t participate in the Olympics," Guimaraes said. "He’s now waiting for the Athletic Commission’s verdict, which should come soon. We are waiting, we’ll see if there’s going to be a punishment and how long it will be. He’s training, Anderson never stops training. He’s staying active."

Silva scored positive on doping tests after match with Nick Diaz. While waiting for the fine, he decided not to give up on his career and he plans to return to the Octagon.
