Silva was carried out of the Octagon on a stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital for further examination. Dana White believed Silva may have suffered a concussion and a possible fractured jaw, but he escaped without serious injury.
Via Twitter, he offered his thoughts on the contest, stating, “At first, I would like to thank the people that supported me and stopped by to watch the fight. I know I let them down.
“I have no excuses, I know that I’m behind these tough guys but I will always accept fighting regardless of the opponent or my possible win or loss. I know that many will criticize but I’ll not give up and I’ll be back soon.”
