Thiago Silva out of ACB 88 main event due to visa issues, Camozzi fight scratched
(https:)
UFC veteran Thiago Silva is out of his main event bout against fellow Octagon alumn Chris Camozzi, at Absolute Champion Berkut ‘88, in Brisbane, Australia. According to an Instagram post made by Silva himself, visa issues rendered him unable to enter the country and the promotion could not find a suitable replacement on such short notice. According to Silva, however, he still has interest to take the fight. As he wrote on his post, the 35-year-old looks forward to beating Camozzi. “Unfortunately my fight in Australia got canceled because of visa issues. Unfortunately the organization didn’t tell the truth to @chriscamozzi7, so he’s saying he doesn’t know the reason on social media. Don’t worry honey bim we will fight soon. Keep your hard work because you will need it for the next time I see you. You like to talk. I like to punch and kick and slap the big talkers In the face inside the cage, Brandon Vera style. Be ready, you will face me soon.”

Julia Avila shows off gnarly broken finger she sustained at Invicta FC 29
(https:)
Julia Avila had her night cut short at Invicta FC 29 on Friday when she suffered a gruesome compound fracture of her left ring finger in the first round. Avila’s opponent, Marciea Allen threw a kick and it landed awkwardly against her left hand, breaking her finger in gnarly fashion. Allen was ruled the winner by TKO due to injury just 49 seconds into the bout. It was the first loss of Avila’s career. Afterward, Avila was in mostly good spirits, showing off the bone poking out from the skin to the cameras. She seemed to get a bit more emotional when she was brought to the hospital. In an video posted to Instagram, Avila showed the badly broken finger again and nearly broke down explaining what happened. The California native said she would have preferred them just cut the finger off so she could continue her fight with Allen.

This is a new one. Following the main event of Legacy Fighting Alliance 36 on Friday, one of the amateur “postlims” saw heavyweight Irvins Ayala knock himself out by attempting to land a hammerfist on grounded opponent Drew Chatman. And yet that isn’t the strangest part of this story. For some reason, Chatman decided to celebrate the dubious win by standing on Ayala’s back and doing a front flip that ended with him landing partially on his opponent and partially with his butt on the canvas: Per the LFA Twitter account, Ayala KO’d himself by slamming his own chin into Chatman’s knee and Chatman was subsequently disqualified for his post-match antics,
