    Gotta go to the regionals and get more experience. He'll be back, he's still young. Hasn't even reached his prime yet.

    good career move by him

    he got thrown to the wolves in the UFC way too early in his career.

    he still has all the time in the world, so he can get some more experience in smaller leagues before getting that UFC gold

    UFC just destroyed its future.

    I bet in a few years, LFA is running the whole game.

    Silva’s sting a young enough prospect to make another title run in the UFC.

    He's just gotta bulk up again.

    Too bad this is so close after UFC 226 or I might go. LFA always has great fights.

    Good for him.

    Leading a card at his age is pretty phenomenal. He's gonna be back with ton of experience.

    Damn shame they let him go so early. Some people lose some at first, but young prospects like him learn quickly. Big mistake Dana
