Well, like fellow countrymen Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Thiago Silva has had trouble remaining in planned fights.
Just days after being announced for the co-main event slot at UFC Fight Night 35 opposite Ovince St. Preux, Silva has been forced out due to an injury.
The 31-year-old Silva (16-3) hasn’t lost in his last three, going 2-0 with one no-contest.
It remains unknown at this time where St. Preux will compete, either on the same card set for January 15 from Georgia or at a later date.
Aaaaand Thiago Silva is now out of his #UFCFightNight bout against Ovince St-Preux. New co-main event for Atlanta TBD.
