Tuesday evening, news broke that former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva was out of his UFC 198 Pay-Per View scrap against Uriah Hall with a condition that could see ‘The Spider’ have his gallbladder removed.
With less than a week to go until fight night, Tim Kennedy, who has been out of the Octagon since his controversial 3rd round TKO loss to Yoel Romero at UFC 178, is campaigning to fill in and fight Hall on short notice.
I have three questions… Can I get a work visa for Brazil in 3 days? can I make 185 pounds in 4 days? Would @UriahHallMMA take it? 😉

So far Hall has maintained radio silence regarding the situation, but if the UFC opts to find a fill-in replacement, expect an announcement shortly.
