Dr. Marcio Tannure Comments on Antonio Slva’s Statements Regarding His Failed Drug Test
Posted by Larry Csonka on 12.19.2013



- Dr. Marcio Tannure, medical director for Comissao Atletica Brasileira de MMA Medical Director, released the following statement today to respond to inaccurate statements made by Antonio Silva in regards to his failed drug test from UFC Fight Night 33…
"To be clear, I am not, nor have I ever been, Antonio Silva's medical doctor. Antonio ‘Bigfoot' Silva has made some inaccurate statements in the media recently concerning the circumstances leading up to his positive test for an elevated testosterone ratio. I am releasing this statement to clarify the facts related to my limited involvement leading up to his fight with Mark Hunt.

Approximately seven to 10 days prior to the bout, Antonio's primary care physician and I discussed the fact that, in spite of the TRT, his levels continued to be below the therapeutic level. His doctor recommended that Antonio increase the frequency of his dosage of testosterone based on his prior levels, and I was asked to communicate that recommendation to Antonio – which I did via email. I also invited Antonio to contact me if he had any questions.

Antonio's primary physician and I agreed that his last injection of testosterone was to be taken on Nov. 30, 2013 – one week prior to his fight. I communicated this to Antonio, as well. That was the extent of my involvement in this matter."
