Thiago Silva out of UFC 89 bout with Lyoto Machida
Undefeated UFC light-heavyweight contender Thiago Silva (13-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) has been forced out of his UFC 89 co-headlining bout with fellow undefeated contender Lyoto Machida (13-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) after sustaining a back injury.
Many MMA pundits believed the winner of a bout between Silva and Machida would be the clear-cut No. 1 contender in the UFC's talent-laden light-heavyweight division. Former champion Chuck Liddell has stated publicly he believes a win over Rashad Evans at tomorrow night's "UFC 88: Breakthrough" would establish "The Iceman" as next in line for a shot at the title.
The UFC has yet to issue a formal announcement, and it is unknown whether a replacement has been identified for the Oct. 18 card in Birmingham, England.
