Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

We are just hours away from the return of the great Anderson Silva, who headlines UFC 183 opposite Nick Diaz in a middleweight main event. The former middleweight champion has been out of action since his infamous leg break vs. Chris Weidman at UFC 168 in December 2013. Those two will be joined by welterweight contenders Kelvin Gastelum and Tyron Woodley in the co-main event (contested at 180 lbs catchweight), while the middle of the PPV will feature lightweights Joe Lauzon and Al Iaquinta. Former title challenger to Silva's belt, Thales Leites, takes on Tim Boetsch in a middleweight contest while the PPV opens with strikers Thiago Alves and Jordan Mein at welterweight. It should be a fun show to close out the first month of 2015.
