Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White promised Daniel Cormier that he would still be competing at UFC 200 on Sat., July 9, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, after his title unification fight against Jon Jones was cancelled due to a potential USADA violation.
And now we have an opponent. A BIG-name opponent, at that.
Former middleweight champion Anderson Silva — no stranger to the light heavyweight division — has been booked to replace “Bones” on just two days notice in a fight that will be contested at 205 pounds, according to a new report from Combate, in what will be a three-round, non-title affair.
“The Spider,” though, may have slipped the info a bit earlier than White and Co. would have liked.
Vale a pena ser um vencedor?Talvez sim, talvez não. Obviamente tudo tem um prazo de validade. A melhoria exige auto-consciência para saber quando acelerar seus esforços e quando simplesmente estacioná-los. Mas aqui na MUAY THAI COLLEGE Nos treinamos até que seja impossível dar errado. E nunca estacionamos, pois a vida é como água, se ficar parada apodrece Fica a dica!! Vegas aí vamos nós

Silva was last seen on the wrong end of a unanimous decision loss to Michael Bisping at UFC Fight Night 84 last February (see it).
The former middleweight champion was booked to make his return against Uriah Hall at UFC 198 back in May, but a last-minute gallbladder surgery halted his comeback. “The Spider” then proclaimed he’d be ready to return at UFC 200, hoping to land a spot on the monumental pay-per-view (PPV) event.
While not under the most ideal circumstances, his wish has been granted.
