China will open up its market for commercial sporting events, which could mean an easier entry for the UFC. During the last two decades, China has imposed rules where government approval is required for all private entities that wish to host sporting events in the country. It's a state-dominated industry, and that process includes mandatory fees for sports 'watchdogs' which they base on the company's 'importance' and 'ability to attract advertisers'.

The world keeps going around and around. So you always end up in the same place. Sometimes heavyweight really, truly feels that way. When Silva, the man on the rise, knocked off a faded Arlovski in 2010, it felt like a meaningful statement for both men's future. And for a time it was.
