Anderson Silva Plans To Fight At Landmark UFC 200 Event In July

0

Although he had to pull out of this Saturday’s UFC 198 mega-event in Curitiba, Brazil to have emergency gall bladder surgery, MMA legend and former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva is already making plans for his Octagon return.

Silva, who pulled out of his scheduled fight with Urijah Hall at this Saturday’s UFC pay-per-view in Brazil, apparently told his physical trainer, Rogerio Camoes, that he intends to fight at the landmark UFC 200 event in Las Vegas, Nevada this July.

“Thank God everything went fine and Anderson is already planning his return,” Camoes told Sherdog.com. “He told me, ‘Master, pack everything up. We’re going to UFC 200.'”

Camoes continued, “The most important thing is that he kept his mind strong and didn’t lose his motivation. On the contrary, he’s really motivated to take part at that historical UFC 200 event.”

Headlined by a rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon “Bones” Jones to unify the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship, UFC 200 is scheduled for Saturday, July 9, 2016 at the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
