*The fight goes on at a catchweight, Silva forfeits 25% of his show money to Hamill, and is eligible for any 'of the Night' performance bonuses, as he did not make weight. The fine goes directly to Hamill; in Brazil the commission does not take a cut.

Thiago Silva has not had a distinguished run of late:
Loss to Rashad Evans at UFC 108
Failed drug test leading to an NC vs. Brandon Vera
at UFC 125
Loss to Alexander Gustafsson at UFC Fuel TV 2
Failed drug test leading to an NC vs. Stanislav Nedkov at UFC on Fuel 6
Win vs. Feijao Custodio at Fuel TV 10:
Missed weight at UFCN 29
It is safe to say that Silva needs a win Wed to keep his UFC contract.

I care about the event, I rarely watch weigh ins though (but I do read up on the results). I'm sure most people don't watch them. The post fight press conferences I actually enjoy, but I don't catch all of them either.

I see Chael needs another curb stomping by by a Brazillian

what was Chael saying about Mat Hamils coach walking out on Hamiil saying that he didnt think Mat was up to it?sounds pretty bad on Hamil, i wonder which aspect of his game it is that his coach thinks he isnt up to?thiago looked like he had already resigned himself to the fact that he wasnt going to weigh in, when they told him to strip - he looked like he was saying 'what do you think my underwear is going to weigh 6lbs?palhares looked like he was praying that he could get through each step to the scale, if someone told me he had taken acid at the weigh ins, i would not have doubted them.then he downed a whole bottle of water without taking a pause for air...and he looked shredded i think there is little chance that beltram vs maldando turns out to be a staring contest...

He looked alright to me, just seemed emotional.

Video does not work. Says it has been removed by user. Another triumph for the Underground blog.

Thiago Silva, god damn it man!I always try to back you, but this is getting harder each time.He better wipe the floor with Hammill, or I think he gets the axe.
