After months of calling Anderson out, pleading to Dana White for the match and certain fans’ outcries, there can be no more talk of Anderson Silva “ducking” Chris Weidman. After an oddly quiet month from Weidman after almost obnoxiously calling out Anderson on a week-to-week basis, somehow both sides have come to an agreement, and the middleweight number one contender will finally face the greatest mixed martial artist of all time on July 6th at UFC 162. Let’s take a look at the matchup that has felt like it’s been in the making for years.
Anderson Silva had a pretty nice 2012, after sending Chael Sonnen to the light heavyweight division with a typically impressive second round TKO, he was a company man and destroyed light heavyweight Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153.
Chris Weidman didn’t have has as good of a year, his house was destroyed in hurricane Sandy and he has been recovering from shoulder surgery going on a year now. In the Octagon, at least, he was undefeated at 2-0 with wins ov...

Is this the best knockout or the worst knockout ever? Personally, I felt like it was the crappiest knockout ever, but round one, eight seconds is pretty legit. The other Anderson Silva is currently fighting in the European kickboxing circuit and he appears to be making a name for himself thanks to this devastating roundhouse kick to the head that knocked out Freddy Kemayo in the...
It looks like Chris Weidman will get his shot at middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva after all.

The Silva vs. Weidman bout will be the [...]
Despite intense speculation that the greatest pound for pound mixed martial artist in the world would be leaving his division for a super fight later this year, it appears he will look to make it 11 consecutive successful title defenses in a row instead.

After months of wondering it seems like Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman will finally square off on July 6th at UFC 162. Anderson was reluctant to take this fight since Weidman lacked the name recognition of a GSP or Jon Jones, however ‘The All American’ has proven himself to be the number one contender in the middleweight division and deserves this shot. Chris has a good...
What do Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante (pictured) and Thiago Silva have in common? Yes, they are both Brazilian. Correct, they compete at light heavyweight. Of course, who could forget they’re both coming off drug suspensions?
What I was trying to get at is the 205-pounders will be in the Octagon at the exact same time at UFC 162.
The organization announced the shootout Wednesday...
Among the many things welterweight top contender Nick Diaz (pictured) revealed during Thursday’s heated UFC 158 conference call was that he would jump to lightweight and middleweight to fight the respective division’s champion.
Diaz wouldn’t division hop just for the fun of it, Mr. 209 believes he would beat 155-pound champ Benson Henderson and 185-pound king Anderson Silva...
Any doubts about the UFC’s place in the FOX Sports family were squashed this week. Fox Sports announced plans for a new channel that is set to rival ESPN. The UFC will be a big part of those plans which include a live fight card series every Wednesday night.
Nick Diaz calls Georges St-Pierre “Crazy” for not accepting the fight against Anderson Silva. I kind of agree with Nick, WAR DIAZ.

According to Ariel Helwani Dana White said that fan favorite Mark Hunt turned down a fight with former champ Junior Dos Santos after JDS’s previous opponent, Alistair Overeem had to pull out due to injury. Ariel also said that when he reached out to Hunt, Mark declined to comment. Sounds weird when a few days ago Hunt said he was “down” for a fight with JDS.
