    Wanderlei Silva is suing the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), stating that they exceeded their authority when they fined him $70,000 and gave him a lifetime ban for running from a drug test.

    ESPN made the following statement on the lawsuit: The lawsuit alleges the NSAC exceeded its jurisdiction on an unlicensed person, violated the licensing requirement, acted capriciously against Silva by imposing a "career-ending" ban and arbitrarily fined Silva based on an "imaginary purse."

    He does have a case, there are more troubled fighters than him and all they paid was a lesser fine and no punishment.

    I don't really care for Wand at this point but I hope he wins here.

    The commissions are so fucking bad it's laughable.

    Also, if he returns to ufc, Wand vs Hendo III, the final chapter (of their careers.)

    I have a feeling he wouldn't have gotten pinched as hard if he'd just come clean. I kinda feel like he's still trying to deflect blame here, but oh well. Good luck to him I guess, NSAC aren't exactly great guys either.

    The UFC won't release him from his contract even though they will never offer him a fight.

    That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying pride was one of the most corrupt organizations in MMA, not even a legit comparison to the ufc.
