UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping is demanding strict drug testing for his UFC Fight Night showdown against former champion Anderson "The Spider" Silva of Brazil.
Silva, who for a long time ruled the UFC's middleweight division, was suspended for an entire year after testing positive for three banned substances following his victory over Nick Diaz at UFC 183.
He tested positive for Drostanolone, Temazepam and Oxazepam and his win over Diaz was changed into a no-contest.

In a report that appeared on MMA Fighting, Bisping said he still respects Silva as a fighter but lost respect for the Brazilian icon for his use of performance enhancing drugs.
"This fight represents me beating all of these people that want to cheat the system," said Bisping, who will enter the Silva fight with a two-bout winning streak. "I've never taken performance enhancing drugs in my life."
"Anybody that does that should be ashamed. To call yourself a martial artist and to take performance-enhancing drugs is the biggest contradiction you could ever make. And to be honest, Anderson should be ashamed of himself," he added.
Bisping stressed that he wants "to be tested throughout this camp."
"Come and take my blood right now," he said. "You can get me to pee in a cup every day of this fight camp, and I hope that happens."
"I hope Anderson is tested many times, because he should be tested many times," he added. "He failed a test not once, not twice, but three times."
The UFC last year announced that it has partnered with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which will be the independent administrator of its new drug testing policy. Under the new protocol, fighters will undergo unannounced, year-round, and in-and-out of competition drug testing.
The new policy took effect in July 2015.
The 36-year-old Bisping has never tested positive for banned substances.
UFC Fight Night: Silva vs. Bisping will be held on February 27 at Bisping's home turf at the O2 Arena in London.
