Anderson Silva, the longest reigning middleweight champion in UFC history, received a one-year suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Thursday.

The ban retroactively began on January 31, when Silva defeated Nick Diaz by unanimous decision. The suspension stems from the presence of the anabolic steroids Drostanolone and Androstane, as well as other non-steroidal, prohibited substances, in his system before and after that fight. The ban, though expected, nevertheless puts a darkness over the octagon given the Barry Bonds/Lance Armstrong-level of the performer popping positive.

Diaz tested positive for marijuana, which strangely sent him away from the Octagon for the same length of time as Silva.

The suspension transforms the fight from a Silva win to a no-contest. The Brazilian, who won 17 straight fights between 2006 and 2012 (16 of them in the octagon),last won a fight three years ago versus Stephan Bonnar. At 40 years old, and after suffering a vicious knockout and an even more vicious leg break at the hands, and foot, of Chris Weidman, Silva appears unlikely to return to the form of his heyday. He looks even less likely, given the suspension, to return to the performance-enhancing drugs that might have made 40 the new 30.

Anderson Silva doesn't have talent, I beg to differ.
