Wanderlei Silva calls Cain Velasquez's knee surgery a 'favorably timed injury'
UFC rabble-rouser Wanderlei Silva posted a training video on Wednesday in support of Fabricio Werdum's interim title challenge at UFC 180. In it, Silva discussed the struggles Werdum has undergone to reach this point in his career, but also, somewhat strangely, took a thinly veiled shot at Cain Velasquez for the "favorably timed injury" that resulted in the champ's withdrawal from the UFC's first event in Mexico. Check out the video above.

One of this weekend’s biggest winners was Long Island’s Al Iaquinta, who went to Sydney, Australia for UFC Fight Night 55 and TKO’d betting favorite Ross Pearson in the co-main event. For Iaquinta, in his first big step up in competition, it played out like a moment of arrival. Not only did he hold his own on the feet against the deft striker Pearson, he dropped "The Real Deal" with a counter left hook that signaled the beginning of the end for the Brit.
