It’s been just five months since Anderson Silva suffered a gruesome leg break against Chris Weidman, but The Spider has been cleared to return to training with no restrictions.  That’s amazing.  No date set for his return to the Octagon.

Anthony Rumble Johnson made his return to the UFC count when he beat Phil Davis last month.  And now Rumble knows who he’ll meet next: Lil Nog, Antonio Rogerio Nogueria.  Rumble has a nice head of momentum going into this, but Lil Nog hasn’t been in the Octagon for over a year.  I know it’s early, but I’m calling Rumble on this one.

Vitor Belfort’s career has been in limbo since the banning of Testosterone Replacement Therapy by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.  He doesn’t have a license to fight in Nevada, but he has been cleared to fight in Brazil, as long as he isn’t using TRT.  So if the UFC needs him there, as long as he passes any test he has to take, then he’ll be good in Brazil.

Tonight on Spike it’s Bellator 119 and tomorrow night on Fox Sports One it’s UFC Fight Night featuring Matt Brown vs Erick Silva.
