Wanderlei Silva”Arbitrary and Capricious” Lifetime Ban Overturned

Today Nevada District Court Judge Kerry Earley overturned the NSAC’s lifetime ban of Wanderlei Silva after he admitted to running from an out of competition drug test.

The Court ruled that the NSAC did have jurisdiction to conduct the out of competition test however the Court found that the punishment was “arbitrary, capricious and not supported by substantial evidence”.

The full judgement can be found here.

  1. Wanderlei Silva has appealed the portion of the ruling dealing with jurisdiction to the Nevada Supreme Court. He is appealing on the grounds that the judge didn’t address the licensing requirements in her ruling. No articles discussing this currently contain the actual documents associated with the appeal. It would be nice if you guys got it first. Great website. Here is a link to an article discussing the appeal: http://www.mmafighting.com/2015/5/20/8632681/wanderlei-silva-appeals-to-nevada-supreme-court-on-nacs-jurisdiction

  2. Thanks for visiting and for your comments Jason. I’m looking forward to the appellate courts reasons addressing this issue.
