Las Vegas, NV
MGM Grand Garden Arena
On January 31st, all eyes will be on Las Vegas, as future Hall of Famer Anderson "The Spider" Silva makes his return to the Octagon to face longtime contender Nick Diaz at UFC 183. Considered to be the greatest mixed martial artist of all-time, Silva shattered multiple records during his nearly seven-year reign atop the 185-pound weight class. He expects a triumphant return against Diaz, one of the UFC's most polarizing figures. Owner of the unique ability to captivate fans both in and out of the Octagon, the former Strikeforce welterweight champion may have earned his black belt in jiu-jitsu, but he expects to throw hands with Silva in a five-round middleweight matchup fans have wanted to see for years.
