On Saturday, Jan. 31, the UFC will host UFC 183: Silva vs. Diaz from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
In the night’s main event, former middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva returns from a lengthy injury layoff to square off with former welterweight title challenger Nick Diaz. Silva has been out of action since suffering a gruesome broken leg at UFC 168 in his rematch against champion Chris Weidman. The Brazilian will look to snap the first losing streak of his career. Diaz, meanwhile, will also be returning to action after a lengthy absence from the cage. The Californian has not fought since dropping a five-round decision to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 158.
The co-main event of the evening features a welterweight clash between former Strikeforce title challenger Tyron Woodley and The Ultimate Fighter 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum. Woodley will be looking to put himself in title talk after winning three of his last four Octagon appearances. He most recently defeated Dong Hyun Kim in August in just 61 seconds. The 23-year-old Gastelum will also be eyeing contention after running his record to 10-0 in November with a first-round submission win over Jake Ellenberger.
The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET with three fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts followed at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
