But for my money, this guy should stay in the UFC as long as he wants to compete. Win or lose, he’s going to get into the cage and give you a fight, every time out. And even more importantly, on Friday morning, when the head is still a little foggy and all you want to do is crawl back in bed, he’s going to give you this:

Anderson Silva: By The Numbers

Whenever Anderson Silva exits the mixed martial arts stage, he will do so as one of the most accomplished fighters in the sport’s history. “The Spider” has compiled a 34-8 record during his stellar 20-year career, capturing titles in the Cage Rage, Shooto and Ultimate Fighting Championship organizations. Though wildly successful before arriving in the UFC, Silva reached new heights once he touched down inside the Octagon. His historic run began at UFC Fight Night 5, where he obliterated Chris Leben in just 49 seconds on June 28, 2006. Less than three months later, the Brazilian was the UFC middleweight champion. Silva remained on the 185-pound throne for a record 2,457 days and successfully defended the title on 10 different occasions. His list of victims included Rich Franklin , Nate Marquardt , Dan Henderson , Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen (twice). Silva relinquished his hold on the middleweight crown in a knockout loss to Chris Weidman at UFC 162 on July 6, 2013. He has gone 1-3 with one no-contest across five appearances since.

THE 15:17 TO PARIS - Official Trailer [HD]

From Clint Eastwood comes The 15:17 to Paris - in theaters February 9. http://www.1517toparis.com/ https://www.facebook.com/1517toparis https://twitter.com/1517toParis https://www.instagram.com/1517toparis -- From Clint Eastwood comes “The 15:17 to Paris,” which tells the real-life story of three men whose brave act turned them into heroes during a highspeed railway ride. In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris—an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends’ lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board. The heroic trio is comprised of Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, and U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone, who play themselves in the film.

“I don’t even know if you want to call him ‘the forgotten man’ because the fan response to his return has been astounding,” Shelby said in the latest edition of the UFC series “Watch List.” “That’s actually surprising to me. He’s had this long layoff, but he’s jumping back in there against a super relevant, tough guy. There’s no cupcakes in his return here, and to me that’s the most intriguing thing: You just have no idea. Is the old Carlos going to show up like he didn’t miss a beat?”

An MMA Christmas: 12 Fights We Want Santa to Bring Us in 2018

Every year the same question burns in our minds: what do we want for Christmas? For us MMA fans, the answer is always pretty simple. We want more great fights. There were a number of great ones in 2017. Justin Gaethje was involved in a couple of classics against Michael Johnson and Eddie Alvarez , Yancy Medeiros and Alex Oliveira put on a scrap for the ages, and T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt put on a hell of a show as well. That’s to say nothing of the memorably one-sided performances as well, from Rose Namajunas ’ dismantling of longtime champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk , Darren Till ’s coming out party against Donald Cerrone , Francis Ngannou ’s near-beheading of Alistair Overeem , Robert Whittaker ’s molly-whopping of Ronaldo Souza , or either of Max Holloway ’s wins over Jose Aldo . And that’s just the start; there are dozens more fights that could be mentioned here. On this most festive time of the year, a week away from 2018, here is our Christmas list of fights we want Old Saint Nick to bring us, one for each weight class. Heavyweight: Stipe Miocic vs.

Daniel Cormier Open To Return To Heavyweight For Miocic or Ngannou Fights - MMA Imports

It would appear that UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is considering a return to the heavyweight division. Cormier kicked off his mixed martial arts career from the heavyweight division, but ultimately made his way to the light heavyweight class of the world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion. With brutal knockout artist Francis Ngannou and reigning champion Stipe Miocic sitting atop the heavyweight division, the transition will not be an easy one for the fighter.
