On SuperBowl weekend two MMA legends are set to step into the Octagon to face off in what is expected to be one of the biggest fights in UFC history.
Anderson “The Spider” Silva and MMA’s bad boy Nick Diaz will both be making their returns to the Octagon after lengthy layoffs but the fight is still mouth-watering for most fans. Silva makes his comeback after suffering one of the most gruesome injuries we’ve ever seen in his rematch with Chris Weidman at UFC 168.
When the former pound-for-pound king makes his return it will be thirteen months since he last fought. Diaz’s layoff has been even longer than the Brazilian’s. When he steps foot inside the Octagon it will be nearly two years since he last fought.
Still, the fight will unquestionably be one to remember and it’s already caused a huge stir in the MMA world. So it’s a perfect time to see who you guys have as the favorite going in?
Who do you think will emerge victorious when Silva and Diaz meet?
