Hold on to your asses, fight fans. The potential Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz superfight has just become a freakin’ reality.
UFC president Dana White just announced on Sportscenter that Silva vs. Diaz is now official (!) for January 31st in Las Vegas. The five-round fight will serve as the main event of the UFC 183 pay-per-view card, and will be held at middleweight. A venue for the card has yet to be announced.
We have very few other details right now, but here’s a photo of Dana and Anderson smiling together.
No other fights have been confirmed for UFC 183 at this point, not that it matters — they already have our money, damn it.
