UFC fines Anderson Silva $50.000 for media-event no-show

LAS VEGAS – The Ultimate Fighting Championship has fined middleweight titleholder Anderson Silva $50,000 for refusing to take part in a planned pre-UFC 162 media event.

Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) was scheduled to talk with a few of Los Angeles' largest media outlets on Tuesday but ultimately skipped the session and instead flew home to his native Brazil.

"We had a full media day set up for him in Los Angeles, and he just decided he didn't want to do it, so he's being fined $50,000," UFC President Dana White told USA TODAY Sports and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

I made a mistake and I fixed it. Calm your nerves, get off the internet for a day or two, it's getting to much for you it seems.

Since when has a contracted promoter fined their fighter? UFC isnt a league, club or team.
