Pena Hits Out At Silva Following Her Positive Test – ‘You Had To Cheat’

Julianna Pena has hit out at Mayra Bueno Silva following the latter’s positive test.

Silva had confirmed her positive test on August 21st, 2023, following her win over Holly Holm in July.

Although that may have been the case, Silva’s camp alleged that this was due to some ADHD medication rather than it being a case of a performance-enhancing substance.

“I want to begin by saying I have never in my life taken a substance to enhance my ability in or outside the cage. I have tested positive for a substance that is consistent with the prescription medication I take for my ADHD. I have been dealing with this disorder my entire life and it affects me in a multitude of ways,” Silva said 

However, the results may end up overturning Silva’s win over Holm. That could be in addition to a ban or a fine that may follow.

But rather than wait for the explanation and outcome, it appears that Pena has already made up her mind. 

And given that Silva and Pena were on course to face each other at 135 for the vacant belt after Amanda Nunes’ retirement, Julianna had a few choice words to say about it.
