Maybe Vera if he loses.

But i see absolutely no reason to fire Thiago Silva. He would have to fight the worst fight of his life in order to get fired or iss weight by 5-10 lbs imo.

His only losses have come against 2 of the last 3 champions.
ANd against Rashad he almost pulled out a TKO win, even though he was fighting with an injury.

He is still young, exciting always ready to put on a show!

No reason imo to have him fired.

With Vera...idk. Depends.
If he puts on a good performance and loses, he'll get one more chance imo.
But if he fights a bad fight and loses, maybe it's time to go. SF will pick him up. No doubt!

25k on Vera. Silva's stand-up is overrated and if The Truth can keep it standing, he can get the win.

IMO this Is the fight where the bookies messed up.
Odds should be pretty even, or maybe even a slight edge to Vera.

My entire 1000 credits on the Truth

I like this fight now more than ever, Have to go with Silva ftw, but both guys looked ready at the weight ins and have it all to play for.

I dont think ether fighter gets cut if they lose, both deserve another chance considering the lack of recent activity in the division its a division they shoudl be looking to expand in not cur from and both are good tests for any up and coming new signings that maybe added to the division.

There is room for both these fighters still should the UFC be looking to expand the LHW, if one does get cut it would be another step in the wrong direction in the LHW division which has lost a little to much recently imo.
