Like many a man over many a century Anderson Silva is blaming his penis for his problems. In the latest development in the saga surrounding his January drug failures, Anderson Silva is now claiming that he was taking Viagra (or something like that – never trust late night TV) and that it interfered with the test results.
Someone (let’s go with Twitter because it all comes from the “complaint” filed by Silva’s attorneys which I think people mean “pleadings” but whatever – Nevada may label things differently) reported it and the relevant quote going around from his is as follows:
[Silva was] administering or using a supplement for the purpose of enhancing sexual performance and testing of the supplement revealed that the supplement was contaminated with an Exogenous Anabolic Agent: Drostanolone metabolite.”
Drostanolone is an anabolic steroid. Now, as a virile man, it is difficult for me to understand the trials and tribulations of men afflicted with limp dick syndrome. And while I’m not a MEDICAL doctor, I am a Juris Doctor, which is close enough for me to say: he’s full of shit.
Still, you gotta hand it to him: using this as an excuse takes balls.
