Who knows what goes on in Thiago Silva’s head?

As nasty as the beating Thiago Silva laid on Brandon Vera at UFC 125 was, something about it just doesn’t sit right. I’m not talking about Vera’s nose being remodeled like it was made of Play-Doh, or Silva bitch-slapping Vera, although that plays into it (and has really pissed off Jon Jones). I’m referring to the fact that Silva so easily mangled and broke Vera – to the point that he was semi-playfully playing the bongos on Vera’s back – yet he couldn’t put him away and had to settle for a decision.

Credit to Vera for surviving, I guess, but Silva should have ended that fight – or at least kept pounding on Vera until the referee ended it. Regardless, Silva looks back in fierce form and is again someone to worry about in the 205-pound division, while Vera, who suffered his third straight loss, will likely get his UFC walking papers while his nose mends.
