Anderson Silva Eyeing Early 2015 Return To UFC

by -

Anderson Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, recently commented on when Silva will return to the UFC. Here is what he had to say…

On Anderson Silva’s Return: “He’s definitely coming back. He’s feeling good, he’s training hard. Everything is good, man. Hopefully we’ll see him back. We won’t see him back any earlier than the end of this year or, most likely, the beginning of next year. There’s always a chance (he comes back in 2014), but as of right now I think his mind is set on fighting at the beginning of next year.”

On Possible Opponents: “There’s Michael Bisping, there’s Cung Le. Even Nick Diaz,” Soares said. “Nick Diaz has said he’s wanted to fight him before. Nick Diaz wanted to box Roy Jones Jr. You could argue that Nick Diaz and Anderson probably have some of the best boxing in MMA, so we’ll see what happens. Like we all know, so many things can change, the landscape of the sport can change so much in such a short amount of time. There’s not a shortage of talent that the UFC has, so I’m sure the UFC is going to come up with a good plan on who the next opponent should be, and I’m sure it will be a good fight.”
