Anderson Silva Likely Off UFC 212 With Release Of Fight Poster

Officials released the fight poster for UFC 212, and it no longer contains Anderson Silva.

The former UFC middleweight champion was expected to meet Kelvin Gastelum in June. Gastelum, though, was pulled for a failed drug test.

After demanding that he face Yoel Romero for the interim middleweight title, UFC officials sent out the poster and have 13 fights lined up for the card. As previously reported on FightLine, Gastelum is expected to fight in July and has asked to meet Silva on a FOX card from New York.
