Remember how UFC 153 was supposed to have guys like Jose Aldo, Quinton Jackson and Alan Belcher on the card? Yeah, those days are gone. Luckily for the UFC though, middleweight champ Anderson Silva said he'd fill in on the card and would fight 205 pounds. The UFC lined him up with Stephan Bonnar, and the Rio event on October 13th had a brand new main event.
