I just became a life long Thiago Silva fan. Thank you for being man enough to admit you were wrong. I hope to see more fighters do the same in the future. Phone Post

Mad respect for owning up to, and apologizing, for his wrong doing. Silva taking it like a man makes me more of a fan. Phone Post

Was not expecting that candid of a explanation given how most fighters that get popped respond. Much respect for the honesty and hopefully he gets his back issues taken care of. Phone Post

Smart for Thiago to just say "yep. I did it." It will surely blow over much faster this way because it basically kills the "what if" buzz on the interwebs.

Heal up and come back strong Thiago, my family loves watching you fight.

 Fucking PR WIN.

I don't know who wrote this statement or who's idea telling the (seemingly) unedited truth was but he/they deserve a raise.

We are giving him a lot of respect for admitting the truth instead of a bs explanation like most fighters. However, the fact remains that he still cheated so lets not all go sing his praises.

In, Thiago has been one of my favorites since I started watching MMA. Looking forward to see him back fighting.

kanodogg -  Honesty is NOT the best policy. Remember Hermes/Sherk? Hermes admitted it like a man and served full suspension, Sherk denies denies denies and gets suspension cut in half. History has shown that if you object to the results/claim it was some mistake in testing you get sentence cut in half. Props to Silva for maning up, but the commission is gonna throw the book at him.

Honesty is the best policy as far as I'm concerned, but you're right that the commission rewards persistent absurd denial and will probably haul him over the coals for telling the truth.

Wow. Mad props to Thiago for owning this. None of the cream/clear baseball B.S., none of the tainted Spanish beef cycling B.S., no placing blame on his teachers/preachers/parents, just a man accepting responsibility for his action.

WTF why is everyone giving Thiago props for coming clean???

this is the statement he used a few weeks ago.

“My blood is clean. I haven’t used anything,” Thiago Silva told TATAME after he failed his UFC 125 drug test.

Are we to believe his latest statement as well about the back injury a few weeks before the fight as well.

I think he just roided to fuck didnt cycle off in time. He looked roided in the cage and any pain killer excuse will not wash with me.

I can udnerstand his need/want to fight on, it is his means of making money.

That said it was against the rules, and I am glad he is ready to accept punishment.

I respect the guy for coming clean, my roommate loves Thiago and I like watching him fight. I hope he gets the proper punishment he knew what he did and deserves to be punished but he gets credit for taking it like a man.

This right here.  It is great he came out and gave an explanation, but the only reason he is saying anything is because he got caught.  Why didnt he make this statement when it was made public that his urinalysis was being re-examined?  Probably because he wasnt sure exacly what his urine sample would test for.  

I have to laugh that people chastise fighters who they "think" have cheated, but give props to a guy who got caught cheating.  I like Thiago as a fighter, but giving him respect for this statement is laughable. 

I dont know how any of you can assume that is an honest statement.  He cheated, tried to cover it up and then got caught.  I personally have to assume that his story is a bunch of bs and that he was not injured, but juicing his ass off.   Not that he used a pain killer due to a previous injury.

to be honest i was expecting it to be related to his back; silva's back is pretty fucked

for those saying "steroids not back treatment" - many people, fighters and athletes esp, use steroids for healing and injury treatment rather than 'getting ripped'. Steroids and a back injury aren't mutually exclusive.

not saying he did use steds, obviously he's not saying he did, but he did look massive so people are naturally gonna speculate in that direction.
