Wanderlei Silva sues NSAC, for Life-Time Ban

UFC light heavyweight Wanderlei Silva has sued the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) and is claiming the government regulatory body exceeded their authority when they issued a lifetime ban in September of last year.

“The NSAC, like any other agency, is a ‘creature’ of statue and attempts to expand jurisdiction over subject matter not conferred by the legislature is without authority of the law and void. Here, the legislature clearly defined the NSAC’s powers to ‘issuing and revoking licenses.’ Contrary to the wrongful action against [Silva], there exists no statutory authority, nor does the NSAC point to any, which allows it to expand its limited jurisdiction to include disciplining people who are not licensed by the agency,” the lawsuit reads, as filed by Silva attorney Ross Goodman.
