Report : Anderson Silva fined 50G's for no-show to Media Event

Silva was scheduled to meet with several media outlets – including newspapers, websites, and television and radio stations – on Tuesday, according to a USA Today Sports report. He instead passed on the meeting and instead flew home to Brazil.

“We had a full media day set up for him in Los Angeles, and he just decided he didn’t want to do it,” UFC president Dana White told USA Today Sports. “So he’s being fined $50,000.”
Wonder why he didn't want to show?

He's afraid of Weidman.

Ouch. I wish the NHL would have fines that might actually make a noticeable difference for players, rather than the "50% of one day's salary up to 10,000 for first offense, 15,000 for repeats" that we have.
