    Update: Thiago Silva won't make weight, will be fined 25% of show money, not eligible for any finish bonuses #UFCFightNight

    Don't think I've ever seen them preemptively deny someone finish bonuses. UFC is pissed and really laying down the hammer on Silva

    You forgot to add the hidden one: being cut if he loses

    C'mon Thiago, get it together. Two failed drug tests in the past 2 years and now missing weight. This is a must win fight for him.

    I support Thiago but, man, compare his situation to Okami's and look were both are atm.

    the guy goes to war everytime he steps in the octagon, however, but this is maybe his last chance.

    He stripped complete naked (towel) and still came in at like 208 or 209 (UFC must be pissed, especially since he's already failed two drug test).

    Don't know about "heavily fined" I thought 25% was the standard for missing weight? And yes he should get axed either way lose axe, end of contract axe imo. He just don't give a shit no more.

    Last 6 fights: loss, failed drug test, loss, failed drug test, win, missed weight.

    Safe to say a cut is definitely on the table if he loses

    typically 20%, but that's normally the AC that does it. Ratner basically acts as the AC when the UFC's in Brazil and some other countries.

    Thiago is walking on seriously thin ice now.

    If he loses this, he might be gone.

    It's not like Thiago had any chance in the fight anyway. He's fighting the guy that gave Jon Jones his only loss.

    Hammer gonna Hammer.

    It's unprofessional. The basic requirement to fight in a division is to make weight. Smh.
