Anderson Silva    UFC    Middleweight
Silva has received a one-year suspension from USADA after the organization determined that his failed drug test from Oct. 2017 was due to a contaminated supplement, Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Silva will be eligible to compete again on Nov. 10 -- one year after the date he was pulled from his scheduled matchup against Kelvin Gastelum in Shanghai due to the positive test. Though Silva has tested positive for PEDs in the past, Wednesday's announcement will at least clear his name for the recent incident. Despite being eligible in the fall, it's unclear what the UFC has in store for the 43-year-old veteran. He's been officially credited with just one win in the past five calendar years, and is well past his days of dominating the UFC's middleweight division. Speculation about an eventual fight with Georges St-Pierre has emerged, but nothing official has been confirmed by either the promotion or his management team.
Sean O'Malley    UFC    Bantamweight
O'Malley (foot) is hopeful to return to competition at UFC 228 on Oct. 6 in Las Vegas, Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

O'Malley broke his foot in his last fight, but still held on in the third round for a victory over Andre Soukhamthath. He recently underwent surgery to correct the issue, and everything appears to be on track with his recovery. O'Malley has asked for a fight against Alejandro Perez on that card, but if the UFC grants him that wish, he would seemingly enter as the betting underdog.
Angela Hill    UFC    strawweight
Hill will now face Cortney Casey at UFC Lincoln following Alexa Grasso's withdrawal from the fight, Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The short notice given to Casey figures to work to Hill's benefit. Hill, 33, is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Maryna Moroz at UFC on Fox 28. Hill enters the bout with a career record of 8-4 while her opposition, Casey, boasts a career record of 7-6.
Cortney Casey    UFC    strawweight
Casey will face Angela Hill at UFC Lincoln on August 25, Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Casey received word Thursday that she was eligible to take on Hill following Alexa Grasso's withdrawal from the fight. Despite dropping each of her last two contests, Casey still enters the fight with a career record of 7-6. Given the relatively short notice Casey received, she will likely enter the fight as a slight underdog.
Drew Dober    UFC    Lightweight
Dober, who is scheduled to face Jon Tuck at UFC Lincoln on Aug. 25, may be in jeopardy of missing a fight if he's not cleared by a physician in time, Marc Raimondi of MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Dober weighed in at more than 18 percent about the contracted lightweight limit for his UFC 214 matchup, gaining 28 pounds between weigh-ins and fight night a day later. As a result, the California State Athletic Commission made a recommendation that he should not compete below 165 pounds, unless a physician can clear him to fight at the lighter weight. Though the state of Nebraska is not technically obligated to honor CSAC's decision, states do tend to honor the rulings of other commissions. There's a chance this fight could be put in jeopardy if Dober is unable to get the required recommendation, which may mean a move up to welterweight is on the horizon. Dober has been a major proponent of creating a 165-pound division in the UFC.
Alexa Grasso    UFC    strawweight
Grasso has withdrawn from her UFC Lincoln fight against Angela Hill due to undisclosed reasons, Danny Segura or MMAfighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Grasso's withdrawal comes as a bit of a surprise. The 24-year-old last fought at UFC Fight Night 129 on May 19 against Tatiana Suarez. The root of her withdrawal is not entirely clear at the moment, but we should have a clearer indication of what caused Grasso to back out of the contest in the coming days.
