    If silva couldnt hit weidman then vitor won’t either. All these silvas fanboys jumping ship to vitor now like a bar whore going to the new guy in bar. Do like anderson said, respect new champion ,he the best

    That’s some crazy explanation, luckily for Silva the surgeon only did one surgery. If people only understood a fraction of how incredible the human body is, the make of it, the way it functions, the way it heals itself etc., is actually mind blowing. The trauma & damage a human body can endure is absolutely remarkable, to the point that it’s so remarkable, that people would not even believe half the facts the human body can go through & survive. Quite possibly one of “natures” or “gods” most incredible creation, if not THE most impressive thing ever made/created period.
