The co-main event at UFC 183 is a very important fight in the welterweight division between two of the division’s top contenders, Tyron Woodley and Kelvin Gastelum. Woodley is currently ranked No. 3 on the UFC’s official rankings, and a victory over a surging prospect-turned-contender like Gastelum would put him right back in line toward a title shot. A victory for Gastelum would be his fourth within the last 12 months and move him to 11-0 as a pro, but would it make him a true title contender? read news >>

Anderson Silva is a major star within mixed martial arts.

Even though Silva is a name that the sport has come to love, he should not be granted a title shot with a victory over Nick Diaz. In an interview on UFC Tonight, UFC President Dana White mentioned Silva's n read news >>
