I hope I never live to experience intergalactic warfare like that scene from Mars Attacks when martians came to earth equipped with vaporizer guns and attempted to eradicate the entire human population. If you’ve never seen that movie, you’re not missing much and that opening sentence pretty much spoiled the entire movie for you (sorry). I don’t know why that film was ever made, but I do know that if Brandon Vera were casted in place of Pierce Brosnan, the aliens would never have even bothered coming to America. They’d probably just go straight to Osaka where Shinya Aoki’s magic pants would scare them off the face of the earth forever.
In Japan, losing streaks have no effect on a promoter’s decision to bring you back at their next event. Unfortunately in the UFC, three consecutive losses generally means that you’re getting served walking papers. Brandon Vera and Thiago Silva are both coming off losses and really need a wins. Unfortunately, they’re going to fight each other, so chalking up a W is only possible for one of them. Assuming that he get’s his spine fixed, Silva’s really excited to stand and trade with Vera.
“I’ll be ready, for sure, and let’s see what happens. I think it’s a good fight, the two of us like to bang and it seems it’ll be a great fight. I’m anxious for this fight, our games match. He won’t be like trying to grab me all the time, we’ll trade a lot of punches. There’s plenty time and I still have to fix my spine. I’m doing treatment for it. It’ll take a month so I can go back to the trainings, but now I just have to wait for me to fight again.”
While Thiago may have learned something form his losses, ‘The Truth’ still thinks the man that broke his skull is overrated and maintains that he’ll hold both the UFC light-heavyweight and heavyweight championship belts one day. It’s that sort of trans-dimensional thinking made Genki Sudo shift his frequency to a parallel universe. We hope both fighters have sufficiently recovered from their respective injuries so they can go back to doing what gave them those injuries in the first place. [Source]
