Undefeated light heavyweight Thiago Silva (Pictures) has withdrawn from his Oct. 18 co-headlining bout against Lyoto Machida (Pictures) at UFC 89 “Bisping vs. Leben” in Birmingham, England.

An American Top Team representative confirmed a report from intheguard.tv, which said Silva sustained a back injury in training. The rep said the decision was made Thursday to pull the dynamic Brazilian striker from the card, and that Silva is expected to be back in play by December.

more disappointing news, lets hope they find a suitable replacement. the injury bug seems to be spreading all of a sudden.

this is a shame. this would have been an outstanding fight. hopefully they get Wanderlei in there to replace Thiago but i dobut it's going to happen. Machida will probably end up fighting Reese Andy, possibly Tim Boestch should he go unscaved against Patt.

Wand or Shogun would be great, but I don't think they will use them against Machida on such short notice. I wouldn't mind postponing Machida's next fight until they can get a top level replacement. They might as well give him his due, and replace T. Silva with Forrest and give him his title shot. Do the right thing Dana and give the man his shot.

Good that will give them someone for Wandy to fight in Dec. I think he is a good match up for Machida he will press him and put him to sleep.
