Brandon Vera injured and out of Thiago Silva rematch


In Jan. of 2011, at UFC 125,  fought, Thiago Silva beat the hell out of Brandon Vera (see at bottom), and "The Truth" was released by the UFC.

Then Silva tested positive for PEDs, and the bout was changed to No Contest, Silva was fined $33,750, and had his license revoked for a year. And Vera was brought back into the UFC.

When Silva's suspension was lifted, Vera wanted the rematch, via facebook.

Good Morning FB!!! I just heard my dear friend Thiago Silva is back...... I want that ass. No H_m_.

Glad Brandon is hurt (he is not faking). I did not want to see a repeat of that fight.
