White's outlook on Diaz has brightened considerably since the former Strikeforce champion no-showed the UFC 137 press conference and got docked a main event fight against welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre. Now fighting B.J. Penn at the Oct. 29 pay-per-view event, White said if Diaz is victorious - and there's no more drama along the way - he could be back in line for a title sho read news >>

Anderson Silva is a major star within mixed martial arts. His status as a legend was cemented with a title reign that included 10 defenses of the UFC Middleweight Championship and 16 straight wins in the Octagon.
