Thiago Silva could not drop the final two pounds, forfeiting 25-percent of his fight purse for a Wednesday night bout with Matt Hamill.

The two are set to collide at UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. Shields from Brazil.

Silva weighed in at 208 pounds, two pounds over the light heavyweight limit of 206. The contest will still go on.

He also will not be able to secure any fight-night bonuses due to the missed weight.
