Apparently the rumor that Thiago would be fighting injured at UFC 108 is not true, according to his camp.

From MMAJunkie:

"That report is completely false," Silva’s manager, Alex Davis, said. "Thiago is 100 percent and he’s busy preparing for this fight."

The original report suggested that Silva alerted the UFC of his condition and the organization offered to up his purse if he could remain on the card and face former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans (13-1-1 MMA, 8-1-1 UFC).

Davis insisted that no such discussion had ever taken place and that it would actually go against all previous discussions he has ever had with UFC brass regarding injured fighters.

"Not only has the UFC not paid any extra money for Thiago to fight through an injury, but to the contrary, in my 10 years of dealing with the UFC, (matchmaker) Joe Silva and the staff have always said it’s better to pull out of a fight if you’re hurt rather than lose a fight because you’re injured," Davis said.
