Rematch on May 15th

Silva about to slap Vera

Another fight that has been recently added to UFC on FX 3 is a rematch between Brandon Vera and Thiago Silva. The two first met at UFC 125 on January 1st, 2011. It was a fairly dominant performance by Silva. Both rounds two and three ended with Silva on top raining down blows. While Silva had Vera’s back in round three he began playing imaginary bongo drums and started slapping Vera’s ears. Though perhaps disrespectful, it was entertaining.

When the fight was over Silva was awarded a unanimous decision and Vera’s nose looked like this.

It was then announced that Silva had tested positive for steroids and was given a year suspension. He gave a statement saying that he had been suffering from a back injury and had taken injections with illegal substances. The fight with Vera was overturned to a no contest.

Though Silva having illegal substances in his system cannot be overlooked, I still think the outcome will be the same. Vera hasn’t looked good in his last three outings and Silva has some heavy hands. I’m calling for a TKO from Silva. More on this fight as it gets closer.

UPDATE: This fight is no longer happening.
