The Concerns Behind The Return Of Silva

Friday, October 17th, 2014

There have been many controversies behind the news of Anderson Silva’s return to the UFC. Here are a few key facts:

Silva has been out of the game for about more than a year. This gap takes a huge toll in most of the fighters who lay off the game and here, he wasn’t just lying off. As a matter of fact he could not even train because of the broken leg that he received while giving Chris Weidman a leg kick.

At the age that Silva has reached, once an injury is sustained it becomes bigger every day and there is a new injury every day. The doctor who performed the surgery on Silva said that the injury he got could even lead to amputation.

Even if Anderson comes back to beat up a couple of fighters and that is very much possible. But if he says that he isn’t interested in the belt anymore, then he gets only the non-title marquees to fight against. Silva is capable of beating up the ranked fighters but would the UFC like it if he is found beating up guys who should have been fighting to win the belt but not fight for it himself? The fans wouldn’t like that either.

Leg kicks are the signature moves that he has like many other fighters. Silva now has a fear of leg kicks because of the career threatening injury that he had from a leg kick that went wrong.

The number of opponents for Anderson is dwindling by the day as he is not setting his foot in the octagon before 2015.

Watching Anderson Silva fight is a great view. His fans are concerned about his comeback because they are not sure that they will get the same Silva on the stage after going through such a tough phase. There will always be the fear of getting hurt in his subconscious mind.

Alistair Overeem Avoiding Junior Dos Santos

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Alistair Overeem has been a very successful kickboxing and MMA player. He is associated with the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). Ever since he became a part of the UFC, it looked that he would soon become eligible to compete for the Heavyweight Championship title which was the title of Junior Dos Santos.

Overeem was able to defeat Brock Lesnar who was actually one of the top contenders in the same division as Dos Santos. Therefore, there were speculations that sometime Alistair Overeem will compete with Junior Dos Santos as well. But this has actually never happened.

Dana White (UFC president) recently gave Overeem the ultimate opportunity to fight against Dos Santos because Overeem has always wanted to come face to face with Santos. However, Overeem refused to take full advantage of this opportunity because he had suffered from an injury during a match between him and Frank Amir. How much time he will take to recover is unknown to him. So Overeem decided that he would stay away from UFC fights at the moment.

Due to his this decision, Dana White has criticized him a lot. White is of the opinion that Alistair Overeem is scared and is hiding from Junior Dos Santos. Dana White had completely lashed out at Alistair Overeem for missing out on such an opportunity. Overeem is waiting eagerly so that he can make a proper comeback to the UFC and prove his worth to all the people especially White.

Currently, Overeem is going to visit Holland so that his treatment can be started and he can recover fast. Alistair Overeem is hell bent on returning to UFC fights only after he is sure that his ribs are at least ninety percent healthy. Whether Overeem will fight Junior Dos Santos or not in the future still remains a mystery.

Chael Sonnen ridicules Wanderlei Silva And Calls Him ‘Stupid’ As He Threatens To Leave TUF Brazil

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Wanderlei Silva commented that only if Chael Sonnen apologizes to him for mocking him, he will definitely quit Ultimate Fighter Brazil, in mid season. Chael Sonnen however didn’t apologizes which lead to Wanderlei un-quitting the show.

When asked about Wanderlei’s ultimatum about quitting the show until and unless Chael Sonnen apologized for his nasty comments against Brazil, Chael Sonnen commented that he feels that Wanderlei is plain stupid and he feels ashamed of such a fighter. He did not act as a fighter but like a checkers players. It’s only in checkers that you play a move at a go. But if you are a chess player guessing the next move of the opponent is essential if one needs to plan out their next move that is your have to be ahead by 3 or 4 moves.

Silva came and threatened that the show will end then and there if he doesn’t apologize to him about the nasty things which he commented about Brazil. And by saying that he acted like a simple checkers player and he definitely did not expect that no such apologies are going to come from Sonnen. With a stern refusal from Sonnen to apologize, all he Silva could do was to give up on his argument. Sonnen added that Silva himself put him in such a situation where he was easily check mated and Sonnen didn’t have to do anything.

As Silva put on the big drama, Dana White along with the producers had to be summoned, or else the show was stopping. Sonnen begged Silva to come back to which he refused blatantly and called a cab. One of the producers even had to prevent him to from getting into the cab. He added that he did not apologize not for his ego but because the apologize would have been meaningless to him.
