It’s been the talk at office water heaters for months now that the main occasion for March’s UFC 197 at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil may be a rematch between Brazilian middleweights Anderson”The Spider” Silva and”The Phenom” Vitor Belfort. Their very first bout happened at UFC 126 almost five decades ago, in which Silva succesfully defended his UFC middleweight title with a front-kick knockout of Belfort, finally recording arguably the most used highlight in UFC history. The news of this rematch gets fight fans giddy with excitement. So much so that it will become easy to block out their recent legal troubles. Silva last saw activity 10 weeks back, where he conquered Nick Diaz via unanimous conclusion on the judges’ scorecards. The result of the five circular main event bout was later turned into a No Competition, when the former UFC middleweight winner tested positive for getting drostanolone and androsterone within his or her system. Having served his suspension”The Spider” is ready to create his return to the Octagon and word is he’s found himself a struggle. This rematch would come following a rubbermatch for Belfort, who’s coming off a first round knockout of Dan Henderson, which happened just weeks ago at UFC Fight Night 77 at Brazil. This was an impressive way for”The Phenom” to go back to the win column following a failed bid at current champion Chris Weidman and his gold, and with another remarkable victory over”The Spider” in this rematch, he could surely make a case to get a rematch with the winner of UFC 194’s Weidman vs Rockhold. The rumored UFC 197 major event is widely talked about, mostly in part because of UFC President Dana White acknowledging that Silva vs Belfort II is the next fight he wants to book for both veteran 185-pounders. The night’s co-headliner was supposed to be a middleweight match-up involving Lyoto Machida and Michael Bisping, but that has been proven to not be the situation when the Michael Bisping vs Gegard Mousasi match-up was declared earlier this week. The two will go to war in the main event for February’s UFC Fight Night 83 in Bisping’s backyard of London. Brazilian fighters who are not currently booked for battles that we could see about the UFC 197 fight card are Thomas de Almeida, Glover Teixeira, Iuri Alcantara, Thales Leites, Rani Yahya, Alan Patrick, Kevin Souza, Leandro Silva, Hacran Dias, John Lineker, Valmir Lazaro, Michel Prazeres, Erick Silva, Bigfoot Silva, Thiago Tavares, Godofredo Pepey, Roan Carneiro, Pedro Munhoz and Thiago Alves.
