UFC bantamweight star Mayra Bueno Silva’s biggest career win is likely to be shortlived, as the Brazilian has failed a dope test that she took prior to the victory over Holly Holm in the UFC Vegas 77 headliner on 15th July.

Presence of banned substance due to ADHD medication, claims Mayra Bueno Silva

In the toughest challenge of her career, Silva secured a second round submission over the former bantamweight champion. It marked her fourth victory in a row, as well as her most substantial victory in the Octagon.

Unfortunately, the 3rd ranked 135-pound fighter announced on Monday that she failed a dope test that she took a week prior to the fight, and presence of a banned substance was found in her sample, which “Sheetara” claims has resulted from the use of ADHD medication.

“It is with deep regret that I have to announce I failed a drug test that I took the week of my fight against Holly Holm,” Silva wrote on social media. “I want to begin by saying I have never in my life taken a substance to enhance my ability in or outside the cage. I have tested positive for a substance that is consistent with the prescription medication I take for my ADHD. I have been dealing with this disorder my entire life and it affects me in a multitude of ways.”

“I have provided a plethora of documents and explanations to USADA and the Nevada State Commission detailing the disorder, the effects of the disorder on my daily life and my decision making in the ingestion of the prescription medicine. I am fully cooperating with USADA, the Nevada State Athletic Commission and the UFC to make sure that all information is available and I fully acknowledge the presence of the substance in my system. I discontinued this medication at the beginning of fight week, like I always have in the past. So while it appeared in a small amount in my system, I am told by experts that it would not have an effect on my in-competition performance at that level”, she added.
