Well, MMABay isn't exactly the most reputable source. They've gotten better, but I'm really hoping they're wrong about this one.

If he *is* out, this card needs to be scrapped.

I just read the rumor (also posted on other sites) and it's supposedly an ankle injury and that the UFC is going to make it "worth his while" to fight through it.

If it's true, I'm not sure how I feel about it.

They claim Figure 4 Weekly/F4WOnline is their source this time, but I can't verify it because it's a "members only" section (you have to pay to access it). Although at least they're not EXCLUSIVELY revealing it this time it's still MMABay, so I'll beleive it when I hear it from more reliable sources.

IMO this was thiago's fight anyways, Even though I have grown to like Rashard, I still dont believe that he is a A+ fighter, And Thiago would destroy him just like Jardine and others.

This fight spoils Rampage/Rashard anyways, No Rampage is back for a fight or two, Him Vs Rashard should be a priority!!

And to back up my talk about Thiago Slaying Rashard, If they DO fight, I would be up for my first avatar bet... I dont post too much, But I am here 24/7!

Either you are Dana White or there is something wrong with your sentence.

If it came from Figure 4 weekly (Dave Meltzer) then it's true. Bloody Elbow posted this also.

scrapping the event
there are people heading to vegas out of the country
is he gonna refund my plane and hotel as well??
with interest??


i heard two rumors

one silva is getting paid to fight injured
which i find hard to believe

and two thiago isn't hurt at all,


for things like this to happen it would be nice if the ufc did give out discounts for future events say 10% off your next ticket
