A previously booked fight from UFC Rio has traveled across the world to Shanghai for the UFC’s first event in China.
The Spider and the UFC have apparently made up.
The last we heard from Anderson Silva, the former GOAT was not happy with the UFC or UFC president Dana White after they were unable to secure him a worthy opponent for a card in Rio. But whatever is going on with their relationship, Silva will return to action for the UFC’s first card in Shanghai, China. His opponent? Kelvin Gastelum, who was originally set to fight Silva in Rio before a drug failure for marijuana scuttled the bout.
The UFC’s Shanghai card will take place on November 25th and marks the first card to take place in China. A previous card in the ‘Las Vegas of Asia’ Macau is technically part of an autonomous region to the west of Hong Kong.
