It has been the discussion at office water heaters for months now that the main occasion for March’s UFC 197 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil may be a rematch between Brazilian middleweights Anderson”The Spider” Silva and”The Phenom” Vitor Belfort. Their very first bout happened at UFC 126 almost five years ago, where Silva succesfully defended his UFC middleweight title with a front-kick knockout of Belfort, ultimately recording arguably the most used highlight in UFC history. The news of the rematch will get struggle fans giddy with enthusiasm. So much so that it becomes simple to block out their recent legal issues. Silva last saw action 10 months ago, where he defeated Nick Diaz via unanimous conclusion on the judges’ scorecards. The result of this five circular main event bout was later turned into a No Contest, when the former UFC middleweight winner tested positive for getting drostanolone and androsterone within his or her system. Having served his suspension,”The Spider” is ready to make his return to the Octagon and saying is he has found himself a fight. This rematch will come after a rubbermatch for Belfort, who is coming off a first round knockout of Dan Henderson, which took place just weeks ago at UFC Fight Night 77 at Brazil. It was an impressive way for”The Phenom” to go back to the win column following a failed bid at current champion Chris Weidman and his golden, and also another remarkable victory over”The Spider” in this rematch, he could surely make a case for a rematch with the winner of UFC 194’s Weidman vs Rockhold. The rumored UFC 197 major event is widely talked about, largely in part because of UFC President Dana White acknowledging that Silva vs Belfort II is indeed the next fight he wants to reserve for both veteran 185-pounders. The night’s co-headliner was supposed for a middleweight match-up between Lyoto Machida and Michael Bisping, but that was proven not to be the situation when the Michael Bisping vs Gegard Mousasi match-up was announced earlier this week. Both goes to war in presumably the principal event for February’s UFC Fight Night 83 in Bisping’s garden of London. Brazilian fighters who are not currently reserved for fights we could see about the UFC 197 battle card are Thomas de Almeida, Glover Teixeira, Iuri Alcantara, Thales Leites, Rani Yahya, Alan Patrick, Kevin Souza, Leandro Silva, Hacran Dias, John Lineker, Valmir Lazaro, Michel Prazeres, Erick Silva, Bigfoot Silva, Thiago Tavares, Godofredo Pepey, Roan Carneiro, Pedro Munhoz and Thiago Alves.
