Saturday night in his Bellator MMA debut, former UFC light heavyweight champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (pictured) left the cage victorious for the first time since beating Matt Hamill in May 2011.
Rampage’s opening round TKO win over Joey Beltran was his first finish since putting Wanderlei Silva to sleep in December 2008. Nonetheless, Rampage declared he’s “back.”
It would appear that Matt Hamill’s (10-5, pictured) second run in the UFC has come to a premature end, after his profile was removed from the UFC’s official website, along with David Mitchell (12-4) and Nandor Guelmino (11-5-1). As pointed out by BloodyElbow this almost certainly points to them being released from their UFC contracts, although that is still unconfirmed at this...
After getting KO’d by Dong Hyun Kim Erick Silva is back in the gym training hard. Silva is an incredible talent and I still expect great things from the 29 year old Brazilian. On another note…How awesome is that mustache???

No surprise that Kim was excited about getting the big knockout over Brazilian up and comer Erick Silva on Wednesday as is seen here doing a little dance to celebrate. The UFC would be happy is he keeps finishing fights like that rather than his usually grappling heavy style

Apparently I am wrong but I wouldn’t have thought Silva would be so smiley after being on the wrong end of a knockout of the night performance… As far as Matt Hamill, I am pretty sure he should not be smiling either after putting on a performance that likely leaves fight fans begging him to retire. Hamill spent the entire third round either absorbing significant strikes or resting...
It will never end up on a highlight reel as one of the UFC's greatest fights of all time, but Thiago Silva did enough to punish and batter Matt Hamill for 15 straight minutes to earn a lopsided decision win.
Heading into the night, Silva was a heavy favorite over Hamill but he took that a little too literally because he came in two pounds over the weight limit as well, automatically...
Brazilian light-heavyweight Thiago Silva failed to make weight for his UFC Fight Night 29 match-up against Matt Hamill and has opted to endure a fine rather than drop the remaining few pounds.
Silva, who is coming off a knockout of the night and fight of the night win over Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante back in June, weighted in earlier today at 208lbs. with a towel. That is two...

Whitely is a proven finisher. He has 4 TKOs and 3 submissions to his credit, six in the first round. Patrick, on the contrary, is more of a grinder. Patrick has a reliable grappling game.

Thiago Silva's recent stretch of troubles seemed to reach an end after he won a fight in June, his first victory in nearly four years, but the UFC light-heavyweight finds himself in another self-made difficulty after missing weight for his UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. Shields matchup with Matt Hamill.
Stepping on to the scale in Barueri, Brazil, Silva initially weighed in at 208...
UFC Fight Night 29 goes down this Wednesday at the Ginásio José Corrêa in Barueri, Brazil. One could be forgiven for thinking this is just another Wednesday fight night card in Brazil (which we need to start getting used to) full of home town fighters, with not too much on the line. In actual fact this is one of the most stacked midweek cards in recent history with quality throughout...

Matt Hamill will step into his bout next week at UFC Fight Night against Thiago Silva without the help of his longtime friend and trainer Duff Holmes.
Hamill had worked with Holmes for several years out of a gym in New York after he left The Ultimate Fighter back in 2006.
Unfortunately after Hamill decided to return to fighting following a brief retirement, the two had a difference...
