Anderson Silva On Timetable For Return, Watch Hendo KO Fedor, UFC Releases Veteran
Henderson will be facing off against former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Maurício Rua in the main event this Sunday at UFC Fight Night. The two previously met during UFC 139 in 2011, and Hendo picked up the win via unanimous decision.
- Former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva says he won't return from injury in 2014, and is instead aiming for a return during the first half of 2015.
"These rumors that I'll fight at UFC 181 or any other event around that date aren't true," Silva told Combate (translated via MMA Fighting). "This year is over for me. There's a chance I'll fight in the first half of 2015."
Silva signed a 10-fight deal prior to injuring his leg against Chris Weidman in December at UFC 168, and expects to retire before the deal is up.
- The UFC has released nearly nine year veteran Melvin Guillard from his contract following a recent 2-5 record and a loss to Michael Johnson that UFC President Dana White was extremely critical of. He is expected to seek work with other fight promotions.
