Wow UFC is just going crazy with fight announcements this week

This is a tough fight for my boy Thiago, really hopes he pulls it out. He certainly needs a win and a clean post fight drug test or he probably will get cut.

Great fight, hopefully neither piss hot this time around. Is Cavalcante good off his back? I can't remember the last time I saw him on the ground and Silva has a fantastic ground game. I could see Silva being outstruck on the feet.
