Silva is still on the UFC's pink slip radar, I think a solid win here can prevent him from being cut...if he losses then I'd bet he is cut. Hammill and him stunk up the cage last time.

Good fight. If the same Silva that fought Hamill shows up OSP could pull off a big upset.

Hoping Silva doesn't have any issues with injuries/weight cut and comes in and steamrolls!

I won't deny his last fight wasn't a FOTY, everyone keeps bashing on Silva in that fight, Hamill scored 3 takedowns out of 14 and Silva landed 96 strikes against Hamills 70.
Thiago might have looked slow and fatter than usual but the guy still had enough in him to win, and his cardio wasn't a factor, heck he even won a 10-8 round on the last judges card.

Nobody talked about how bad A. Silva looked against Chael in their first outting so why are people bashing how bad Thiago looked when he went 30-27, 30-27 and 29-27

Because anderson silva isn't relevant to the conversation?

you can always make him relevant to any conversation

"Yo I'm gunna bust out a new move tonight."
"Sure bud, you're white. You can't dance."
"Bro, I'm busting out the Anderson Silva tonight. Chicks gunna dig it"
