Wanderlei Silva to fight his lifetime ban from MMA

on

Wanderlei Silva has begun an appeal against his lifetime ban at the hands of the Nevada State Athletic Commission after he evaded a drug test in connection with a planned fight against Chael Sonnen at UFC 175 in 2014.

Silva’s lawyer notes, “This case requires the court to vindicate a basic proposition: an agency cannot expand its jurisdiction and take disciplinary action against someone it does not license.”

The NSAC has until October 12th to respond to the appeal.
