This might not be true:


Hearing the news, we contacted Thiago Silva by phone, and the fighter was surprised. "Injured? Me? I’m very healthy and looking forward to fighting Ra

Bloody Elbow is good for interviews, but never trust them on breaking news.

I hope its true. Page will have his timing this time around.

Dammit I got excited for a minute there, I hope it does pan out and Thigao is just talking to try and save his fight but being squashed.

I agree with you guys tho I believe Page would find a way to finish him. Maybe front kick to the chiny chin chin
