Thiago Silva tipped the scales 2 lbs over the contracted weight limit of the light heavyweight division

Barueri, Brazil – Thiago Silva again violated the rules of the octagon by failing to make the required weight limit for his fight against Matt Hamill. The light heavyweight division has an original limit of 205lbs but since it is a non-title fight, an allowance of a pound is given to the fighters. Silva however, has weighed 2 lbs north of 206. He is given two hours to shed weight but he was unsuccessful in his attempt. Meanwhile Hamill has tipped the scales at exactly 205.

“I just need to make some adjustments; that’s all. He fought a hell of a fight. I’ll come back stronger. I’m not worried. Losses always make true champions stronger.” - Muhammed 'King Mo' Lawal

Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal got caught up in a bashing battle against Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante at Strikeforce: Houston last Saturday at the Toyota Center. A highly regarded wrestler, Lawal was expected by the audience to exert a grappling-heavy strategy. However, Feijao was able to fought off a number of take downs and remained standing in the first round. Though King Mo could not take the fight down to the mat, he was able to give Feijao some digging body shots in the second round. But in the midst of another body barrage, the Brazilian fighter unleashed a trio of knees that clearly hurt the King. As the champ fell backwards, Cavalcante puts him down with an overhand right. Lawal gave a single-leg take down attempt, but Feijao was too strong that he was able to batter King Mo with punches and elbows. John McCarthy, the referee of the event, stepped in at 1:14 at round three to stop the fight.
