Anderson Silva still hints at boxing career

It seems Anderson Silva had plans to go to Thailand to work on his Muay Thai after UFC 90 but issues with his Green Card have delayed the trip. He also recently got turned away at the Canadian border and denied entrance to the country possibly for the same reasons.

UFC and Fabricio Werdum part ways

by: Matt De La Rosa
