I know its been beaten to death, but does anybody have a detailed timeline of the event's between Weidman and Silva? As in, who said what first, when Chis announced his injuries, when Silva announced that he would be willing to fight somebody at 205 to save the Brazil card, etc etc etc?
I don't believe Silva is afraid of any man and wouldn't duck anyone. However, in order to determine if he has "avoided" fighting Chris, I need a detailed timeline of who did what first.

I just don't see this happening, especially not since Silva has learned how to utilize the cage to defend take downs. If Sonnen's "in your face" style couldn't get him down in round 2, I definitely don't see Chris being able to grind his way to a UD.
