At 27-years-of-age, Jose Aldo is the young, healthy, vibrant, six time defending champion of the UFC’s featherweight division. If fans count his prior WEC (Zuffa) title defenses, he is an eight time defending champion. With a professional record of 24 – 1and ranked No. 2 on the Pound-for-Pound best fighters list, “Scarface” is a mixed martial artist that has more than proven his ability to dominate an opponent in the Octagon. To the point, Aldo is an exceptionally talented athlete...

Anderson Silva recently described his UFC 183 fight against Nick Diaz as 'one for the fans', and with the following that both fighters have it would be hard to think that the event would do anything below a million PPV buys. Silva's back story is that of an injured former champion, and Diaz's is of a somewhat dejected and disillusioned athlete rolling the dice once again. When the two meet, it will mark the first time in over a year that 'The Spider' has fought in the octagon, but for the Stockton bad boy...

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will finally make his long-anticipated return to fighting this coming Januray, as he squares off against the Stockton bad boy Nick Diaz at UFC 183. The pairing came at a perfect time for the promotion and fans alike, and I can't imagine how much hype the first trailer for the event will garner. Speaking during a recent media call, and transcribed by MMAFighting.com, Silva commented on his upcoming 'non-title super-fight' with Diaz: "We both haven’t fought...

Vitor Belfort won't be receiving testosterone-replacement therapy (TRT) when he steps into the Octagon on December 6 to challenge Chris Weidman for his middleweight title, but the "All-American" and his camp are still preparing for the "TRT-Monster" who won all three of his fights last year in devastating fashion. Echoing Weidman’s sentiment, Longo touched on his team’s preparation for “The Phenom”: “We’re going to prepare for the TRT version of Vitor Belfort." Weidman's...

The rumored light heavyweight bout between recent title challenger Glover Teixeira and No. 6-ranked contender Phil Davis is apparently official for October’s UFC 179 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The two fighters reportedly verbally agreed to face one another at the still-developing fall card, but Teixeira just confirmed that he will be fighting Davis to Portal do Vale Tudo: "My manager called me yesterday confirming the fight to Maracanazinho. It’s going to be awesome to fight in Brazil again,...

Undefeated UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman silenced many of his critics by defeating Lyoto Machida in the main event of July 5’s UFC 175 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. “The All-American” sustained a bevy of nagging injuries in the bout, something that has been haunting the otherwise pristine champion throughout his short but decorated UFC career. Weidman will need to be as close to fully healthy as possible when he climbs into the Octagon for his next test,...

No. 1-ranked UFC light heavyweight hasn’t really been known as much of a trash talker throughout his rising MMA career. That is, until he took UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones to the limit at last September’s UFC 165 from Toronto. Beating on the dominant champ like no one had before, “The Mauler” badly damaged Jones and may have emerged with the gold were it not for one fateful fourth round spinning back elbow. After defeating Jimi Manuwa at UFC Fight Night...

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson has experienced a small career resurgence since signing with Bellator in late 2013, defeating Joey Beltran, Christian M’ Pumbu, and most recently, former Strikeforce champion Muhammed Lawal with a close decision at the promotion’s inaugural pay-per-view (PPV) show on May 17. “Rampage” attributed much of that success to a knee procedure that helped him regain some of the vigor he had during his insanely powerful Pride FC and UFC...

September 27 is fast approaching and with it, one of the best fights of 2014. On the night in Las Vegas Nevada, light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones will put his title on the line for an eighth consecutive time, as he takes on the No. 2 ranked Daniel Cormier at UFC 178. The fight pits the younger (27), taller Jones (6’4”), against the shorter (5’11”), older (35) Cormier, in a match that is sure to be both epic and bitterly contested. Although the pair have respect for one another’s...

UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw put in the performance of a lifetime at UFC 173, scoring a dramatic finish over Renan Barao and snapping the 33-fight unbeaten streak of the former champ in the process. With the rematch set for UFC for UFC 177 in Sacramento, California, talk has turned to whether 'The Viper' can repeat his dominant performance over 'Baron'. The Brazilian Nova Uniao product spoke in the time since losing to Dillashaw, saying he was out on his feet after being hit with a big right hand...

UFC Fight Night (UFN) 54 is slated for October 4 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and until today (July 31, 2014) the promotion had yet to assign the card its main event bout. However, the UFC pulled the trigger on that decision this afternoon, as the franchise announced via their Twitter account that welterweights Rory MacDonald and Tarec Saffiedine will headline the Halifax Metro Center show. Are you ready Atlantic Canada? @rory_macdonald & @tarecfighter to headline in Halifax! http://t.co/0gQTfhbvfu pic.twitter.com/tALhvAcZiH —...

Currently riding an impressive three-fight winning streak, former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo Souza will look to make it 4-0 inside the Octagon at UFN 50 when he faces "The Dreamcatcher" Gegard Mousasi in a rematch from their clash in 2008. The two first fought in the finale of Dream's middleweight Grand Prix where Mousasi emerged victorious after downing the Brazilian with a deadly upkick as Souza was trying to jump into his guard. But, don't think that means "Jacare" isn't confident heading...

Nick Diaz Won't Enjoy Fighting Anderson Silva

Posted on July 31, 2014, 09:41 AM by Mike Drahota
Loved and hated by MMA fans the world over, Nick Diaz sent shockwaves through the MMA world by finally returning to the Octagon this week when his awaited “super fight” with former middleweight champion Anderson Silva was announced this Tuesday (July 29, 2014). Out of action since his hyped but lackluster decision loss to former welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, Diaz has been in a self-imposed “retirement” ever since. However, the Stockton bad boy spoke up during a UFC 183...

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will finally make his long awaited to the UFC next January, as we recently learned that he will face former Strikeforce welterweight champion and notorious controversialist Nick Diaz. The Stockton bad boy resigned to the UFC on a three-fight deal this week, and instantly the talk turned to Diaz vs. Silva. Obviously the fight has some very interesting factors; styles seem to match up well, both fighters like to keep it standing, and maybe most importantly for...
