UFC Announces Superfight Between Returning Stars

By  | 

The UFC made a huge announcement today that not only are two of its biggest stars returning to the octagon at the beginning of 2015, but that they will face each other.

Former middleweight champion Anderson Silva, has been cleared by doctors to fight again after suffering a nasty leg injury on December 28, 2013 in a loss against current middleweight champ Chris Weidman.

The loss was the second straight for Silva, who lost his title to Weidman 5 months earlier.

Silva hasn't fought since the rematch.

He will face Nick Diaz who also hasn't been in the cage for a long time, since March 16, 2013.

Diaz is coming off back to back losses, against first Carlos Condit and then former welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre.

The super fight and return to the octagon for two of the best fighters in the sport is set for Super Bowl weekend, January 31, 2015.
