It’s been the discussion at office water heaters for weeks now that the main occasion for March’s UFC 197 at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil may be a rematch between Brazilian middleweights Anderson”The Spider” Silva and”The Phenom” Vitor Belfort. Their very first bout took place at UFC 126 almost five years back, in which 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 fight fans giddy with enthusiasm. So much so that it becomes easy to block their recent legal issues. Silva last saw activity 10 weeks ago, where he conquered Nick Diaz via unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards. The result of this five circular main event bout was turned into a No Contest, when the former UFC middleweight winner tested positive for getting drostanolone and androsterone in his or her system. Having served his suspension”The Spider” is ready to create his return to the Octagon and word is he’s found himself a struggle. This rematch would come after a rubbermatch for Belfort, who’s coming from 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 present winner Chris Weidman and his golden, and with another remarkable victory over”The Spider” in this rematch, he would certainly make a case for a rematch with the winner of UFC 194’s Weidman vs Rockhold. The rumored UFC 197 main event is talked about, largely in part because of UFC President Dana White admitting that Silva vs Belfort II is the next fight he wishes to book for both veteran 185-pounders. The evening’s co-headliner was rumored to be a middleweight match-up between Lyoto Machida and Michael Bisping, but that was demonstrated to not be the case when the Michael Bisping vs Gegard Mousasi match-up was declared earlier this week. The two goes to war in the main event for February’s UFC Fight Night 83 in Bisping’s garden of London.
