Thiago Silva reflects on his performance and his weight cut
"I think it was a bad fight, I had a bad weight cut which was my own fault. I disappointed the UFC, but I’ll make up for it. I had many chances to knock him out, but I gassed out. It was a bad fight even though I won. He takes punches well, but I feel I could have finished it and just didn’t have the energy. I am not pleased at all," Silva said after the fight.

Stefan Struve's heart condition improves, still determined to return to UFC
In August, news broke that UFC heavyweight Stefan Struve had been diagnosed with a leaking aortic valve and an enlarged heart. Initially, there was some fear that the condition might prematurely end the 25-year-old's promising MMA career. After a brief stint in the hospital, Struve's doctors suggested he take medication for two months and then visit with them again in early October to decide the next course of action. Struve met with his doctors last Wednesday. His manager Lex McMahon has since provided MMAFighting.com with a promising update on Struve's condition: "Stefan Struve recently had a follow-up visit with his doctors to determine the efficacy of the treatment protocol he had been prescribed. During his visit, the doctors informed Stefan that the leakage back into his heart has been greatly reduced.
