Prior to his UFC 108 main-event contest with Rashad Evans (14-1-1 MMA, 9-1-1 UFC), Brazilian slugger Thiago Silva (14-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) was rumored to be suffering from a serious ankle injury.

"The rumor came out that it was an ankle injury," Davis said. "Actually, it was not an ankle injury; it was a back injury.

Come on now ........If you lose you lose dont bring up the injury now shouldnt have fought if he was hurt. I hate hearing BS like this.......If your hurt before the fight you dont fight simple.

you probably should read the article man, its not thiago saying this, its his coach. also, he said that hes not trying to make excuses and that evans probably would have gotten the TDs anyways, and says he didnt want greg jackson to know about the injury, not to mention the fact that had he dropped out this card may have had to have been scrapped.

sure it gets old hearing fighters say stuff like this, and we all know that everyone fights dinged up, but judging by your post you read the title and not the article, and that leads to jumping to conclusions.

I thought the same thing and clicked to read the article just to make sure, but I couldn't get the link to work for me for some reason.
