Brandon Vera: 'I just heard my dear friend Thiago Silva is back ... I want that ass'

UFC light heavyweight contender Thiago Silva, who had his license revoked by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) after testing positive for steroids at UFC 125 back in January 2011, is now eligible to re-apply for his license to fight.

And when he does, Brandon Vera (@Verafied) will be waiting for him.

Good Morning FB!!! I just heard my dear friend Thiago Silva is back...... I want that ass. No H_m_.

"The Truth" received a broken nose and his promotion pink slip after being manhandled by the tainted Brazilian at last year's "Edgar vs. Maynard" pay-per-view, but has since been called back to the UFC after Silva's drug test results came back hotter than a chili fart.

Silva was slapped with a slew of penalties, including a one year revocation of his fight license, a steep monetary fine ($33,750) and a change in ruling for his bout against Vera to a "No Contest."

Anyone ready to see these two settle their score? Or would the result be the same regardless of whether or not Silva was on the stuff?

Thoughts?
