Wanderlei Silva has been in the video-making business more than he’s been in the fighting business of late.

This past week, the UFC and PRIDE legend issued his latest video as a response to being called before the Nevada State Athletic Commission to provide some information about a random drug test he skipped out on in late May.

That skipped test was the reason the UFC pulled him from his scheduled UFC 175 bout against Chael Sonnen next week. (And Sonnen went on to fail a random test, himself, and his fight against replacement Vitor Belfort was scrapped. Sonnen subsequently retired from MMA.)

Silva awaits another hearing down the road from the NSAC, which will decide on his punishment.

But before that happens, our own Ben Fowlkes offers up his own video response to Silva’s most recent video response. Check out the video above.

And for more on the UFC’s upcoming schedule, stay tuned to the UFC Rumors section of the site.
