Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz and Hector Lombard have all been penciled in for today’s Nevada Athletic Commission hearing, which will stream live on UFC Fight Pass.

The agenda is set to start 1 p.m. PT from Las Vegas.

Silva, a former UFC middleweight champion, failed his pre-fight drug test for two banned substances leading up to a recent fight with Diaz. The former Strikeforce titleholder also failed his test, as marijuana metabolites were found in his system.

Lombard’s failed test was from early in January 3, as a steroid was found.

Along with those three, Ashlee Evans-Smith is also on the agenda for a failed drug test.

The complete list of agenda items can be found on the NAC’s official site.

Item No. 35 on the agenda states “discussion on forming expert panel to discuss drug testing policies and procedures in an opening meeting,” followed by Francisco Rivera’s request for a loss to Urijah Faber to be changed to a no-contest.

Diaz, Silva, Lombard all follow as items No. 37, 38 and 39, with requests for temporary suspensions attached.
