I was scanning through the list... saw him over weight... zero surprise.

The guy is a mess. He needs to figure out if this is what he wants to do or not.

Thiago didn't make weight, fined 25% of his purse, and in not eligible for any post-fight bonuses.

God damn it Silva. He better not **** up tomorrow. The UFC is practically feeding him a win here.

@MikeChiappetta:

Thiago Silva's last 6 UFC appearances: loss, failed drug test, loss, failed drug test, win, missed weight.
He better win or it's off to Bellator with him.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Wow, Hamill might actually have a decent chance now.
