12:01 PM ET 05.08 | Anderson Silva has a simple reason for returning home to Brazil instead of attending his L.A. media tour to promote UFC 162 - he didn't know about it. The UFC middleweight champion was fined $50,000 by the UFC. "I've never missed any commitment to the UFC. I would never have made the trip to Brazil if I knew I had to be in Los Angeles," said Silva. "Everyone knows that I always block my media schedule to devote myself to training, since that's my main priority. I'm an athlete, and my focus will always be to train and be prepared for the challenges."
