    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).

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

    Has a fighter ever been fined like this before? Seems unusual.

    The funny thing is, this (Anderson missing the media event and getting fined) is probably a lot better publicity for the upcoming fight than Anderson answering a few questions like he usually does...: "I'm happy" "The UFC, it is a big sport" "Me, my camp and my team, Nogueira brothers have been working hard" etc.
