Thiago Silva back to UFC in 2009

After the injury and the scrapped fight against Lyoto Machida, Thiago Silva now is focused on the back treatment, getting ready to go back to the octagon as faster as he can and keep the perfect 13-0 MMA history. “I’m doing the physiotherapy well to get better… I’m doing the medical treatment, following correctly, but I still don’t know when I’ll come back. Ultimate said that I won’t fight this year anymore, so I’ll probably be back in January, and I’ll be ready”, said the ATT fighter.

With his injury, Lyoto Machida is also out of UFC 89’s card, and the ATT athlete believes the fight might happen in January. “I don’t know anything by now, I only know that he’s out too. Probably UFC might continue with this fight, and that’s good for me. I don’t choose opponents, these things happen, people get hurt, and inJanuary I”ll be ready and stronger, and they can put anyone”, told Silva, that watched Chuck Liddell’s fight with Rashad Evans.

“I watched that, it was a good punch”, commented, making his bets for the next title fight against Rashad and Forrest Griffin. “I believe Griffin has more potential than Rashad. I think it’ll be a close fight and might go to decision, but I think Griffin will do better. He has more heart, a good stand up game and more ground game… Rashad has a good wrestling, but Griffin has more qualities, in my opinion”.

That would be awesome if they set up machida/silva fight in Jan but i don't see Machida going that long without fighting.
