Thiago Silva Misses Weight, Practically Guaranteeing He’ll Be Fired With a Loss

Remember when we remarked that Thiago Silva was the most likely fighter to win up in Bellator after UFC Fight Night 29 and then pointed out how Thiago Silva constantly shoots himself in the foot?

We hate being right. Thiago Silva missed the 205 pound mark by three pounds. Nevertheless, the fight will occur at a catchweight. Silva has to forfeit 25% of his show money to his opponent, Matt Hamill.

This fight was already do-or-die for Silva, who’s been one of the sport’s unluckiest fighters/drug users. He pissed hot for non-human urine (and likely used a fake dick) at UFC 125. Subsequently, his win over Brandon Vera was changed to a no contest. Silva’s UFC on FUEL TV 6 win over Stanislav Nedkov was also changed into a no contest after the Brazilian tested positive for marijuana.

Missing weight is likely the last straw for a guy with this kind of history.

Fortunately, all of the other fighters made weight. Catch the full weigh-in results after the jump.
Unluckiest? Yeah right. all his problems have been brought upon himself.

Man, MMA must be the sport with the most unmanly men there is, with so many guys who have no balls and hence need TRT for their low testosterone and guys that need to use fake dicks...

Depending on his salary, and recent UFC logic, I wonder if UFC would cut him even if he wins anyway. Regardless, I'm sure he will be fighting King Mo in a year from now.

Also just realized this fight is tonight....UFC really needs to stop with Wednesday cards.

I completely disagree this is the best day possible to do the card. You don't want to go up against Monday Night Football, Thursday Night College and NFL games and you want to limit your weekend cards during this portion of the football season where there are so many teams out there that still have hope and the fans are still interested. Friday you have Bellator. This is the best day for sure and a smart move. They can't compete with a high profile college football game on Saturday this time of the year.

Why is that a good thing? He is a cheating POS in my book and one of the biggest douches in the sport. I hope Hamill smothers him to death.

If I were Joe Silva, I wouldn't cut Thiago even if he losses.

After disposing of Feijao, he should've gotten someone in the top 5, top 10 minimum.

Matt Hamill looked terrible in his last comeback fight and hasn't done anything to earn a fight with Silva.

Can't blame the man for missing weight by 2 pounds as a form of protest against being given an unworthy opponent, who doesn't get him closer to title contention.

Yushin Okami should move up and take his spot.

Oh so that was the reason? So why did he submit unicorn piss for his last urine sample?

I'm clueless and guessing. I can't imagine its easy getting motivated to fight Mark Hamill. Hamill didn't look like he belonged in the ufc in his last fight, much less a co main event.

The ufc isn't cultivating a positive public image by tossing the hearing impaired, should have retired Hamill, in the cage with an animal like Silva who is likely to impair Hamill even further.

So Thiago won't win humanitarian of the year because his urine didn't test positive as having come from a human being.

Strange how some seem to be missing sleep over that.

That happened so long ago.
