*BREAKING NEWS* Thiago Silva out of UFC 89?

Silva sustains a long time injury in his back and during training the injury reached a chronic stage and he was forced to withdraw from the semi-event against fellow Brazilian.

Silva is in Brazil treating the injury and doing physiotherapy twice a day.

"My will was to fight with 40% of my condition, but after the doctors' evaluation, along with Ricardo Liborio - he decided that I wouldn't fight in UFC 89." Silva stated

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! This is very disheartening news because I was looking forward to this fight a lot. I wonder if they are going to keep Machida on the card?

Wow that's is very disappointing as i was really looking forward to that fight. I do like the Idea of replacing him with shogun as it looks like Page and Wandy are set for 91. so both Shogun and Machida are without opponents right now if that is the case and the old shogun shows up i see this being a very tough fight for Loyoto

Chances make Champion's....Champion's take chances

Holy shit, this sucks. I was looking forward to seeing Thiago's smug bastard-look being smeared all over the canvas.

Shogun/Machida would be bonerific though.

That sucks I was looking forward to that fight- I really like it when you have two undefeated guys and you know one will walk away with their first loss.

I'd hate to see Shogun, after his long layoff, take on Machida in his first fight. Would be a kickass match-up though.

This is the worst news i've heard all year, that was going to be a war... but.. some good can come out of it... even though it would be pretty soon after, the winner of rashad/liddell could step in and the winner of that bout could get a shot at the LHW belt
