MACAU - When Thiago Silva got up off the canvas on Saturday in Macau, the scorecards didn't matter. Not in the least.
The Brazilian took advantage of either his opponent's waning energy or lack of attention, took him to the canvas, mounted him, then transitioned to an arm-triangle choke that he cranked until Stanislav Nedkov tapped.
What may come as a surprise to some is, had the fight gone the distance, Silva already was in line to win with the judges.
