Thiago Silva Injured, UFC Persuade Him To Fight On? (MMAbay source)

http://mmabay.co.uk/Story%2003832.html

Quote:
Rumour has it that American Top Team light heavyweight and the man set to co-main event UFC 108 alongside Rashad Evans on January 2nd has suffered an ankle injury during training.

The news comes via Figure Four Weekly who also reveal the UFC are making it worth the Brazilian’s time to remain a part of the already massively injury hit card. It must be noted that this is an unconfirmed report.

This comes hot on the heels of today’s news that former PRIDE star, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira has been forced to withdraw from his UFC 109 fight with Brandon Vera, putting even further pressure on the promotions roster.

Note from staff: MMAbay has a history of fake/inaccurate news and interviews so take this with a grain of salt. At least until its confirmed by a 'legit' source.

This card is indeed cursed. Is there still a fight on this card that nobody pulled out of?

I swear someone over at SF has cursed the UFC. I know injuries come with the territory, but I don't think I've ever seen so many consecutively in all my years as a fan... and to fighters on the same card no less!

Hopefully he doesn't fight if the injury is too extreme to affect his performance. Rashad is no one to take lightly.

A loss at this point would send Thiago straight to the bottem with LHW players like Lil Nog, Jones, Shogun, Vera, Cane, Forrest and more...

I saw this on MMABAY yesterday and have searched EVERYWHERE else and can't find even a rumour.

Until I hear it elsewhere I'm not going to worry about it.

The way you've worded this it sounds as if you classifying these guys, L'il Nog, Shogun, Cane, Forrest, Jones, et al, as being bottom of the LHW pile. Perhaps you meant to say that these guys were/are waiting in the wings for chances to fight, etc... but that's not how it reads....at least not to a couple of us.
Perhaps we simply misread it....or lack sound comprehension skills.

Ahhhh.... Let me try that again.

With LHW players like the ones I mentioned a loss at this point would send Thiago to the bottem.

Because there is so much stiff competition. (mentioned)

The names I mentioned are good not bad.

They don't suck.



Sorry guys.

Anything found on mmabay has a good chance of being fairly inaccurate, I wouldnt read to much into it until it comes from a credible source.
