Interview with Thiago Silva, he talks about finding a camp in the United States, his thoughts on his former teamates shogun and wandy, and announces that he will be facing Rashad in May.

good interview, but i dont know if thiago will be able to pull off the W against rashad, i think thiago is an all around better fighter, but rashad might take the fight by kayin on him for te 3 rounds,......... man seems like there is no one of chute boxe anymore, eveyone is leaving.......

i hear ya. but to be honest, they havent won anything of any significance for over a year. Maybe they got too comfortable on top and stopped progressing like the other top camps...ATT, AKA, Jacksons, etc....

Im very interested in what shogun, ninja and dida are going to be able to do with Fighter U... especially because it's supposed to be in Curritiba.

I like thiago in this fight, but will have to do more research as ive only seen him trounce alexander.

I see Thiago winning by heavy hands and using BJJ skills to get back up or mount

BTW: Nice match up, I think this is the perfect fight for both of them as far as today
the winner should move up 1 fight next to the belt
2rd KO.

I don't have high hopes that Thiago can avoid the takedown and lay-and-pray. I will be rooting for him though, since it will serve Rashad right for phoning it in at 78.

Damn I'm pissed! As a huge Thiago fan I am scared!!!

Rashad is just going to Lay on him for 3 rounds. Damn!!!

Thiago would murder Rashad on the feet. I'm not giving up hope though, he will submit him!!!

WAR THIAGO SILVA!!!!!

God I hope Thiago can sub Rashad from his back, that would teach him a valuable lesson about the dangers of LNP!!! Better yet would be a KO from Thiago as they separated after a sprawl...most guys don't throw at that moment, except Wandy, he does every time it seems.

A knee to the chin right when Rashad's going for the takedown would work well too. Sherk shrugged those off against Franca, but I doubt it would be the same deal with Rashad.

Thiago is dangerous in that he doesn't care. He doesn't respect the other fighter's game which allows him to dominate without fear, Rampage is the same way, and so is GSP off the top of my head. He respects the fighters as people, but doesn't respect their game and this is shown ala Houston Alexander. I see this guy rising to the top.

WAR Thiago Silva

Exactly. Having that kind of lack of respect coupled with a good chin leads to monumental ass-whoopings like the first Rampage/Chuck.
