July 8, 2016 10:19 am by Russell Ess

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is set to fight UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier on two days notice at UFC 200.

Silva, who is a massive underdog against Cormier reached out to the UFC shortly after Cormier’s original opponent Jon Jones was pulled from the fight after being flagged by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation.

According to MMA journalist Shaheen Al-Shatti, “The Spider” weighed in well under the UFC light heavyweight limit of 205 pounds.

Al-Shatti tweeted, “Wow, Anderson Silva at 198.5. Doesn’t even need to take off his shirt. Is normal.”

Who are you picking to win the fight between UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former middleweight champion Anderson Silva?
