Anderson "The Spider" Silva Is Back This Saturday At UFC 183

January 29, 2015

The moment we’ve been waiting for has finally come: UFC 183 - Silva versus Diaz. Since snapping his leg against Chris Weidman fourteen months ago, the Spider has faced his greatest challenge since first stepping into the Octagon. Recovering from a career threatening injury not only requires the obvious physical recovery, but also the proper mental healing to be able to compete again. Will one of the greatest pound for pound fighters in MMA history show up?

Standing on the other side of the Octagon is Nick Diaz, a legend in his own right, who has a lot to prove in this superfight. People forget that Nick was the only man to ever knock out welterweight champ Robbie Lawler, a feat amongst itself. His brash attitude and amazing fight skills make this a must watch fight.

VFD Sports Marketing Client’s MusclePharm and MateFit will also sponsor Joe Lauzon and Miesha Tate respectively at this historic event. Joe is on the main card and will bring his amazing energy against Al Iaquinta. Miesha fights number three ranked women’s bantamweight Sara McMann at the top of the preliminary card. Expect fireworks from both Joe and Miesha. They’re some of the best at what they do.

You can catch the main card of UFC 183 on PPV at 10pm ET live from The MGM Grand Gardens in Las Vegas. The preliminary card can be found for free on Fox Sports 1 at 8pm ET.
