Damnit! What horrible news. I see nothing bad bad things for Thiago in this fight. I was hoping they'd give Lyoto another opponent quickly so Thiago wouldn't have to do this. I think he matches up perfectly to be beaten by Lyoto's style.

IDK about that. I've had Thiago as the guy to prove how overrated Machida is since I first heard about the first date .

I echo many other posters... Too bad we have to wait so long.

BUT, I still think Machida will school Silva.

This is a rough way to introduce Thiago to fighting contenders IMO. The guy has looked really good against a bunch of guys that aren't that great... At all.

However Machida has already dealt with fighters like Franklin, Sokky, Ortiz, Penn...

I'm not completely sold on Thiago. I need to see how he does against some top guys. Seeing him lose against Machida won't tell me much as all of Machida's opponents in the UFC have looked like ass against him.

Shit. I was hoping these two wouldn't fight after Thiago pulled out, these guys are two of my favorite fighters makes me a sad panda to watch them fight.

I still got Machida, Thiago's stand up is good but there appears to be a lot of holes in it I believe Machida will easily expose.

Thaigo's pace will play into machida's game plan. Machida's got this.

You seriously think Machida is going to get his 4th TKO (2 of his current tko's are hardly KO's one's a cut the other is really a submision due to strikes) against Thiago Silva?
