Bullet Point Headlines

  • Anderson Silva is currently eyeing an early 2015 return to the Octagon. According to reports, the guy he wants next is none other than pseudo-retired Nick Diaz. 
  • The full cast for TUF: Latinoamerica has been announched, including stand out Bantamweight, Fredy Serrano.
  • After an outcry of support for a Nick Diaz vs. Matt Brown fight from fans and media, Nate Diaz responded, saying "My brother is retired. So if this guy wants to fight a Diaz, he's got to fight me."
  • Urijah Faber vs. Alex Caceres has been added to UFC 175, making an already strong 4th of July card even stronger. This should be a fun fight, with plenty of motivation for both guys.
  • UFC makes its return to Dublin with a stacked Fight Night lineup headlined by Ireland's own Conor McGregor vs. Cole Miller. Expect lots of a trash talk and a deafening crowd in this one.
