The MMA news just keeps a-coming this week!

Back in the UFC on a three fight deal - one of which looks likely to be against Anderson Silva in his return fight early next year.

Do you think they'll put Nick in against someone first, or hype the f**K out of the Silva fight for six months?

Either way, with Diaz in the house it'll be entertaining!

Not this guy again.

I'm guessing he'll be spouting off about how he should have a title fight upon his return.

Really have no interest in this guy, got to be the most overrated fighter in MMA. What are we going to get, more posturing & bad mouthing his opponents in & out of the cage? Looks great against guys a weight level below & guys a class/skill set below but against the top 5 or 10 at WW or MW? Against GSP & Condit looked out of his depth. Would prefer him to stay at WW & fight loser of Lawler vs Brown, like to see him stand & bang with these 2

Well, it's been announced. Jan 31st 2015: Silva v Diaz.

It's going to be big, two stars of the UFC. They don't really even need to hype it!

Bang on; Diaz v Brown would be a great fight, with relevance in the WW division.

I've not seen anything about whether the Diaz / Silva fight will be Diaz's first one back in the cage, mind you. Would they risk an injury jeopardising such a huge payday?

Diaz v Silva is classed as a superfight?

I gather it's the main event at what will be UFC 183.

Me? I'm excited for it. It'll be fun!

Really? I can only see a win here for Brown, ok Diaz has good BJJ but then again who doesn't at the top now? I don't see Diaz taking Brown down that easily & Brown has the better stand up & is stronger.

Diaz vs Silva, unless Silva has lost it mentally since the 2 Wiedman losses I can only see a win for him. He's bigger, stronger & has the better skill set.

It's a fun fight which will generate big interest.

Diaz is still a top 10 guy IMO and done what most do against GSP i.e. lose and against Condit is was a close fight.

Silva needs a comeback fight so why not against a guy coming up in weight and one which should be exciting.

As much of a Diaz fan I am he didn't deserve the GSP fight at the time he got it and he would have to win 3-4 fights to get a shot as the WW is stacked.

He's back again after 5 year ban reduced to 18 months can be back in August.

Happy for him, 5 year ban was riddiculous but can't say I'm interested in him coming back, a very overrated fighter in my opinion and a bad loser to go with it.
