There was no urine inconsistent with that of a human submitted by Thiago Silva (Pictured) this time around. According to MMAJunkie, the Swedish Mixed Martial Arts Federation tested all 24 athletes who participated in “UFC on FUEL TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva” and each passed their exams with flying colors.  

The commission screened for drugs of abuse (such as marijuana and cocaine) and performance-enhancing substances.

Silva initially posted a lopsided unanimous decision victory over Vera at UFC 125 on New Year’s Day in 2011. However, the Brazilian subsequently flunked his drug test and had his win overturned to a no contest.

He was also issued a year-long suspension and fined $2,500 by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The controversial 29-year-old made his return against Alexander Gustafsson in the show’s featured attraction. Unfortunately for Silva, Gustafsson spoiled his comeback by posting a lopsided unanimous decision victory.

Silva hasn’t won a fight since August of 2009.

UFC on FUEL TV 2” took place April 14th inside Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
