Anderson “The Spider” Silva has a new reason to rekindle his desire for middleweight gold. UFC 194 opened the doors for a few middleweights in the division. Yoel Romero defeated Souza by decision, however, raised more questions about Romero’s ability to perform in the championship rounds.
Chris Weidman historically is the only fighter to win decisive rounds against the former champ aside from Chael Sonnen at UFC 117. With that said, Spider could position himself with 2 victories and get a crack at the champ Luke Rockhold.
When active legends like BJ Penn and Anderson Silva prepare for a pre-camp and call it a comeback, the words from a man named LL Cool J come to mind. “Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years!”
