Anderson Silva broke his silence for the first time since failing a drug test and got pulled from his fight with Kelvin Gastelum. Shockingly, Silva didn’t address the situation or even acknowledge it. We can only assume that ‘his people’ are handling it. There was no admission of innocence or guilt; Just a blanket statement about being blessed and thankful.
He posted a statement on his Instagram:
“Obviously, I think everything is part of a process of evolution. With each passing day, I can learn more about who I am. I’m here to thank all my fans, especially my coaches, and all the contributors for this long journey.
I can’t express my feelings and how sad I am because we all invest love, passion and time in this camp. I don’t know exactly the plans of GOD for me, but anyway, I can only thank him and all of you for the love and affection. Nothing is more gratifying at this moment than having you by my side. I will not give up, much less stop doing what I love. Not because of fame or money, it’s because I love to fight. So no matter what happens from now on, nothing changes. My plans are the same, nothing has changed.
A big kiss for everyone and see you soon.”
