This is coming from the same guy who said who wouldn't fight again in '12, and then goes up in weight to fight Bonnar?!?!? And now he is writing off most of a year that hasn't even started yet?
Personally, I am tired of Silva's nonsense. And it seems to be something new every day. He's not in his early 20s anymore...........a year off at his age could make for the end of his career - and maybe that is what he truly wants. I would love nothing more than to see him lose.
No one will dispute how great a fighter he is, but he has turned into a prima donna as of late. For me, it is starting to overshadow his fighting.
