Thiago Silva Explains Not Going For Kill At UFC 108


“I thought he would exchange a little bit more, but he escaped from the exchanging and he went on takedowns…. I knew I was losing. I wasn’t that good on the energy and I tried to provoke him to see if he comes over me, but he didn’t bought it. I knew I was losing, I lost the two rounds. To be tired make a difference, man … I started to provoke him because he was with the low energy, getting tired…. Wanting or not, he has a heavy hand, there’s some time that we don’t know what’s going on anymore…. I think the energy made the difference, I was pretty tired.”
