Thiago Silva and the Top Five Fighters Suspended for Failing Drug Tests

Earlier today UFC Light Heavyweight Thiago Silva went before the Nevada State Athletic Commission and received a hefty punishment for failing his post fight drug test at UFC 125.

The American Top Team based fighter was fined $33,750 and has been suspended until January 1 of next year. His win over Brandon Vera was changed to a 'no contest' as well.

Despite the repercussions, several top fighters have been caught with something illegal in their systems.

Here are a few of the top fighters who have been caught and punished for failing a post fight drug test.
