Default Re: Silva vs Maia

Yeah it all was a bit strange at the time... I remember him wanting to leave the UFC for boxing and then he wanted more money and a win bonus. Then this happened and he apparently made some comment along the lines of if you don'e get paid you don't put on a show

I remember watching this live thinking Silva looked amazing and then... bam... he gave up. Weird...

He single handedly killed MMA in U.A.E... I doubt the UFC will ever forget that and while they have him tied in to that "Champion contract" they'll have him fighting until he is 105 years old...
