Wanderlei Silva

There’s been a lot of talk lately about Wanderlei Silva┬ápossibly returning to the cage and or ring, and now the legendary fighter could be one step close.

As you likely recall, in 2014 Silva was handed a life time suspension from the Nevada Commission, after he failed to take a random drug test that was requested. Since then, however, a judge determined the ruling wasn’t fair, and tossed it out.

Well, on Wednesday, the Nevada Commission announced that Silva has been handed a three year suspension. Since the 39 year-old was originally disciplined nearly two years ago, this means Silva could apply for a license to fight next spring. The news is being reported by MMA Fighting.com and other outlets.

So, will “The Axe Murderer” fight again? Looks like it could happen no?
