Thiago Silva: “I’m very healthy and looking forward to fighting Rampage”

UFC light heavyweight slugger, Thiago Silva has dismissed tonight’s rumour that he’s out injured and will be replaced by Rashad Evans at UFC 130 on May 28th in Las Vegas, Nevada, saying it’s simply not true.

Speaking via Tatame Magazine, Silva said:

“Injured? Me? I’m very healthy and looking forward to fighting Rampage. That’s not true. Nobody called us about anything, the fight is on.”

Nice, i'm much more interested in this fight rather a rematch with Evans.

Good News, I actually want to see Silva take another title run and hopefully this time win himself a title shot.

I see Thiago taking this fight to the floor, if he can. Should be a easy knockout for Rampage.

Well, that settles it... i'm really pumped to find out Silva is in fine form!

The LHW division is really, I mean really stacked right now.

We have:
-Rua vs. Jones for the title
-Silva vs. Rampage for a contender
-Machida vs. Couture (possible redemption to get Machida back into his winning ways)
-Griffin vs. ? (Some interesting match ups could happen here)

Few guys coming off of loses or looking to climb the ladder:

Frainklin, Bader

Man-o-man this is going to be an explosive year!

I seriously give Rampage next to no chance, Thaigo better stand up and ground game, seriously Rampage has not impressed me for a couple of years now, I would be surprised if this fight is any different.
