On February 27th former UFC middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva will return to the Octagon after a year-long layoff following his fight with Nick Diaz that was ultimately ruled a no-contest. Silva will fight Michael Bisping in a highly anticipated middleweight showdown between two veterans of the sport at UFC London.
A win over Bisping could see Silva’s name thrown into the middleweight title mix once again. However with that being said, Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman ave their highly anticipated rematch for the UFC middleweight championship at UFC 199. In addition, the UFC has booked Vitor Belfort vs. Jacare Souza in what many expect to be a #1 contender matchup in the wake of Yoel Romero’s failed drug test.
