The middle weight division has been known for the last couple of years as a train station filled with top contenders. Every day more arrive, and as quickly as Anderson Silva (33-4) checks their tickets, they leave and never come back.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum were named “TUF:
Stephan Bonnar popped on his UFC 153 prefight drug test for the anabolic steroid drostanolone, first reported today by mmajunkie.com. In his defense, I would’ve taken a strong dose of grizzly bear steroids myself before entering the cage with “The Spider” Anderson Silva.

Bonnar made the confirmation via Facebook after it was announced by UFC President Dana White during a Metro PCS chat Tuesday night. Bonnar stated via Facebook “Huge thanks to every UFC fan out
Anderson “The Spider” Silva! There isn’t anything that I can say about this man that hasn’t already been said by everyone else. Silva has left a trail of destruction behind him which includes 16 wins in 16 fights, inside the octagon. What’s even more impressive is his 11-0 record in title fights. The man has won fights via front kick to the face, Thai knees to the nose, and
It seems that all too often these days the hot topic on everyone’s mind in the MMA world is superfights. Whether it’s Anderson Silva vs. George St. Pierre or Jon Jones it seems as though everyone is dead set on finding a way to make them happen.
