Antonio Silva isn't the only one on the hot seat.
The California State Athletic Commission scolded Silva for taking on a fight in Japan while suspended for testing positive after his EliteXC win July 26. But the Commission also threatened to fine and suspend Silva's manager, Alex Davis, for arranging the Sengoku 7 bout this past weekend.
Davis, however, refuses to accept the punishment. According to CagePotato.com, Davis plans on fighting the CSAC tooth and nail, claiming the Commission's action is simply an effort to "extend their jurisdiction to the whole world." Said the American Top Team manager:
"We've got to. I don't see any other options at this point. We're going to go through civil court.
"Antonio has acromegaly. He has to treat it. He spends between $6,000 and $8,000 a month just on medicine for it. He needs to be able to keep fighting to make a living. If it's between Antonio's health and pleasing the athletic commission, we have to choose his health."
