Anderson Silva Sends Message To Injured NBA Player, Several New UFC Fight Announcements
Both Davis (12-2) and Teixeira (22-3) are coming off decision losses. Davis, a former Penn State University standout, was topped by Anthony Johnson. On that very same night earlier this year, Teixeira fell to champion Jon Jones.
- UFC Fight Night 50 has two more bouts lined up, as Dustin Kimura meets Ian Entwistle and John Moraga squares off with Justin Scoggins. The card takes place September 5 from Connecticut's Foxwoods Resort Casino.
The Moraga-Scoggins contest will open up the FOX Sports 1 main card. Moraga (14-3) and Scoggins (9-1) are a combined 5-3 in eight Octagon appearances. Moraga lost to division champion Demetrious Johnson earlier this year.
Entwistle (8-2) lost his UFC debut, while Kimura (11-2) has split his four fights. The main event of the card features Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza meeting Gegard Mousasi.
- Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva knows first-hand what Paul George is currently going through. Over the weekend, George, an NBA standout with the Indiana Pacers, suffered a broken leg after landing awkwardly on the court.
Silva, who is scheduled to return this January from a similar injury suffered last December, sent a message to George via social media to offer his thoughts and prayers. "The Spider" will face Nick Diaz in the main event of UFC 183.
