The Curse strikes UFC matchmaker Joe Silva


Even the matchmaker is injured

The UFC 108 fight card has earned the reputation of being 'cursed', as so many of the fighters originally scheduled to compete Saturday have dropped out because of illness or injury.

It's gotten so bad, in fact, that White says UFC matchmaker Joe Silva somehow has fallen victim to The Curse, recently tearing a knee ligament.

"This is so bad, Joe Silva blew out his MCL," White said. "It's so bad the matchmaker is down. I don't know how, but he blew it. He's got to have surgery."

 On the plane back from Manchester, me 5'6'', Joe Stevenson, and Joe Silva all got the whole middle row to ourselves, while the normal size people got all cramped together.  MMMMMM what a good nights sleep that was.
