"The Spider" has no desire to complete a trilogy against the UFC middleweight champion but would accept a fight with Nick Diaz.
Anderson Silva still doesn't know how long is going it take for him step on the octagon again but the former UFC middleweight champion told Brazilian media that he is open to the possible fight between him and Nick Diaz. However, "The Spider" doesn't feel that he and Chris Weidman should fight each other one more time, as the current UFC 185-pound champion is 2-0 in the more
Anderson Silva will return to the Octagon in 2015, and he welcomes the idea of fighting Nick Diaz.
In a recent media scrum in Rio de Janeiro, Silva confirmed he won’t compete this year since he’s "not feeling safe to return (in 2014)," and a fight with Diaz, a former welterweight title contender who is currently retired, would be interesting.

This may be in large part due to antics that some find tasteless or objectionab more
... in the most Nick Diaz way possible. Though based on his latest round of contract talks with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), we may see Anderson Silva return from his shattered shin before Diaz emerges from his self-imposed retirement.

Bia Mesquita would like to see Metamoris set up a bout with Ronda Rousey to quiet Rousey's talk of being able to beat any BJJ champ in the world.

Myles Jury has been vocal in his criticism of Nate Diaz this week, but it doesn't seem he's had to wait long to find out who his next opponent will be. After calling out Nate Diaz earlier this week for not signing to a supposed fight offer, Myles Jury (14-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) will apparently face another veteran of the division instead.
According to Fox Sports, the Alliance MMA product is being lined up to face former PRIDE FC lightweight champion Takanori Gomi (35-9 (1 NC) MMA, 4-4 UFC) at the Saita more
