Anderson Silva to fight black guy named Israel
and getting a break from USADA.

Silva, 43, hasn't fought since a decision win against Derek Brunson in February 2017. He failed a random drug test in October 2017. However, the United States Anti-Doping Agency ultimately ruled the positive test was caused by a contaminated dietary supplement, and Silva agreed to a one-year suspension.

Long considered the greatest fighter of all time, Silva (34-8) has just one win in the past five years. The Brazilian held the record for most consecutive UFC title defenses for years, until flyweight Demetrious Johnson broke the mark in October 2017.

Adesanya, 29, will be coming off a breakout 2018.

Fighting out of New Zealand, Adesanya (15-0) made his UFC debut in February and has rattled off four wins, including a sensational first-round knockout over Brunson at UFC 230 in November.

I'm just having a chuckle at the pathetic state of mma these days EY where they still need to roll out these geezers in their forties because they don't have anything better coming up. And a little bit at the corruption of the US sanctioning bodies for letting them fight. I have no clue who the other guy is...

RE: Anderson Silva to fight black guy named Israel
yeah.

i remember back in the early days 40s was ancient for MMA

now it's pretty normal

it's all about name value

CHACK vs. TITO sells even though it's nowhere as competitive as even a B-level undercard fight on U FIGHT CHEAP

The champion kickboxers and Olympic wrestlers today are guys in their forties still hanging around too. No fresh blood with any sort of elite athletic pedigree seem to be incoming these days. Remember the K1 champions and Olympic gold medalists crossing over in the heyday when the pay was better and the sport was being promoted to an international audience as a martial arts even? Extreme Fighting 4 actually had two Olympic gold medalists compete in it. Where are those guys now?

The trashiness of the spectacle has to be a big reason why you don't see elite athletes jumping in anymore. UFC today just has that stench of tractor pull/roller derby trash sport about it now.

I think back then there was also the expectation that the sport would eventually become mainstream and when that happened fighters would be getting boxing level paychecks. The UFC monopoly and later the Reebok deal consolidated the pay ceiling at low 6 figures for all but like 3 fighters. SO most top level athletes have realized that career in MMA just isn't worth it.

RE: Anderson Silva to fight black guy named Israel
His kickboxing record was 75-5 and that was the only time he was Koed by one of the best in the world. His style has transferred well to MMA thus far. Very exciting addition to the roster! Talk about the low level production value and the corruption of UFC all day and Ill agree but to say the talent is less or the athletes of the early days were superior is just silly.

RE: Anderson Silva to fight black guy named Israel
Was just looking at the UFC 170 rankings. Pele, Anderson, Sakarai and Newton from 2001 would destroy that top 4. Of course they were better than UFC's top 170s back then as well but at least guiys like Menne and Miletich could hang...

RE: Anderson Silva to fight black guy named Israel
Speaking of 170 in 2001 - this was a great tournament at the time featuring most of the top guys and a much bigger Karim Barkalaev in Kuwait. Pele was never really the same again after.

Your welcome guys Smile
