Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

HSBC Arena

———————————————————————–

UFC middleweight champion moves up to the light heavyweight division for the third time during his tenure in the promotion. In July of 2008, he met James Irvin at UFC Fight Night 14, knocking him out just over the minute mark in the first round. The last time Silva competed at 205 pounds, he managed to knock out former champion, Forrest Griffin in the first round at UFC101 with one of the most extraordinary striking displays in UFC history.

Fan favorite, Stephan Bonnar fell to the bottom of the UFC’s light heavyweight division from 2006 to 2010, losing five out of seven fights during that stretch. Recently, with a new sense of motivation, Bonnar has rebounded with three straight victories, including dominant unanimous decision victories over Igor Pokrajac and Kyle Kingsbury.

Known for a while by hardcore MMA fans, Glover Teixeira showed the casual fans what the hype was about in his UFC debut with a stellar performance at UFC 146, earning a first round submission victory over Kyle Kingsbury. The win was his sixteenth victory in a row, including wins over UFC veterans Antonio Mendes, Marvin Eastman, and Ricco Rodriguez.

Fabio Maldonado very well should be 3-0 in his UFC career, but instead he’s 1-2 and likely fighting to keep his job at UFC 154. He made his UFC debut in October of 2010, defeating James McSweeney by third round TKO. Since then, he’s dropped two highly controversial unanimous decisions to Kyle Kingsbury and Igor Pokrajac. Two fights many people believe should have been given to Maldonado.
