One year sounds great on paper, but it's August and it expires in January 31st. His behavior in the hearing was absurd and he's probably only going to miss one fight. Maybe he misses out on the next Rousey show or the Super Bowl weekend show, but he's probably only got one or two fights left in him and might be better off waiting all the way for UFC 200 next July anyway. It's such not a big deal.

It's good a thing this is one of the last cases under the old penalty structure.

I think Silva's excuse falls under the Principal Skinner-saying-he's-a-virgin strategy of "admit to something embarrassing to cover up a lie, since nobody will believe anyone would make up something so humiliating."



George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.

Of all the drugs that Dana White can ban that is the least offensive. At this point, you might as well ban a guy for having a six pack and a smoke.
