On January 20th, Mayra Bueno Silva will fight for the vacant Women's Bantamweight title. However, this fight was jeopardized after she tested positive for ritalinic acid following her submission victory over Holly Holm. But, after working alongside the UFC and USADA, Bueno Silva was only given a one-month suspension after it was revealed the positive test came from her ADHD medication.

The UFC did everything for me; this was bullshit, everyone knows. Thank you to the UFC, and thank you, Hunter (Campbell).

Bueno Silva might not have been fighting for the title this weekend if this issue had not been resolved.
