“I failed to make weight and disappointed the UFC,” Silva told the media after the bout. “It was a huge mistake, unprofessional, but I promise it was the first and the last time that it will happen.
“I won the fight, but I had a sh—y performance,” he continued. “I had the opportunity to finish the fight, but couldn’t because I was tired. I gassed. I won’t lie. I’m not a child or a hypocrite. I have to train better to fight in a better shape next time.”
After Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 29 event in Brazil, Thiago Silva addressed the media about his two failures during the week.
The fist of which, his missed weight, and the second being his less than desirable performance against Matt Hamill.
