Following a failed drug test at UFC 125 last year, Thiago Silva has been shelved with a suspension for the last year. Luckily for him, January has again come, and his suspension is finished.
With the UFC putting on at least two events per month, Silva has all sorts of opportunities to come back whenever he is ready to fight. There are many fights that Silva can take, but there is much concern that he will suffer from ring rust. Assuming that he is like Rashad Evans and shows that ring rust is just another excuse, the question on everyone's mind is, who will he fight in his comeback?
The light heavyweight division is one of the most competitive divisions in the UFC, and it is obvious that there will be plenty of options for Thiago Silva when he does receive his comeback fight.
