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."
