The entire dope test failing saga has been saddening for Mayra Bueno Silva, as the UFC bantamweight contender has opened up on how she received the positive test results, and her next plan of action.

I can take this out of competition, and I always stop on the Monday: Mayra Bueno Silva

Recently, Silva made it public that she failed a dope test that she took a week prior to the victory over Holly Holm in the UFC Vegas 77 headliner on 15th July, and the presence of a banned substance was found in her sample, which “Sheetara” claimed had resulted from the use of ADHD medication.

Now, during a recent session with MMA Fighting, Silva let out more details about her failing the test and how she has received the news, aside from what she plans to move ahead in the future.

“I’m very sad for this because, first thing, this amount showing in my test, I don’t take in the competition. This is sad for me,” Silva said. “I stopped taking the medication the Monday of fight week. I’ve done this a lot of times, and then this time, I don’t know what happened. I stopped on the Monday. This medication, it’s not doping, but I can take this out of competition, and I always stop on the Monday. I don’t know what has happened.”

As she explains how the UFC as well as United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has been of assistance in the wake of the test and even cleared her of any misconduct, Silva says she still doesn’t know what the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC), which recently extended her suspension, will decide.

“I’ve taken this for three years, and this time I don’t know what happened,” she went on, “I sent exams, everything I have all the time. Everything that USADA, the UFC asked of me, I respond. When USADA comes in my home, I show them, ‘I take this, I take this,’ everything. But this one, I don’t know. For USADA, everything is OK. For the UFC, everything is OK, because I do everything they ask me. But the commission, I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
