Thiago Silva Withdraws From Ovince St. Preux Fight, Begging Us to Ask: Is the UFC Just Making Shit Up Nowadays?

Like we said, we were quick to dismiss the notion of this pairing…at first. But then we got to thinking: What possible motivation could the UFC have for booking this fight? And then, it all became so clear. The UFC is severing its ties with Josh Koscheck. 

Don’t buy it? Well, let’s just take a little trip down memory lane, shall we?
