Thiago SilvaLooks like it didn’t take too long for Thiago Silva to find another fight after getting booted out of the Griffin match-up at UFC 101.

According to MMA Junkie, instead of Forrest, Silva will face the UFC’s go-to-guy Keith Jardine.

Brazilian slugger Thiago Silva (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) woke up this morning believing he would be facing Forrest Griffin on Aug. 8 at UFC 101. He’ll go to sleep preparing to face Keith Jardine (14-5-1 MMA, 6-4 UFC) at UFC 102.

Sources close to the organization have informed ( that “The Dean of Mean” and Siva have verbally agreed to meet at the Aug. 29 event.

Bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.

Not a bad fight, and actually a lot less predictable than Forrest vs. Anderson. At the moment, I’m not sure who I’ll go with on this one, but if I had to pick I’d take Jardine just because he’s due for a win.

That pretty much leaves Mauricio “Shogun” Rua left as the only other big name light heavyweight without a fight, assuming Ramage is still waiting in the wings for the Evans-Machida winner. Perhaps, Shogun will get the loser, maybe fight someone like Luiz Cane, or just wait for a rematch with Forrest.
