Wanderlei Silva Makes A New Friend At The Vegas Zoo

We saw the Nevada State Athletic commission hand out some not so stiff penalties to Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen, two other fighters who also failed drug tests ahead of UFC 175.  There is a big difference between failing a drug test and refusing to take one and you have to think that the commission is going to make an example out of Silva.  The only person who seems to feel otherwise...
