UFC 183: Anderson Silva Outscores a Game Nick Diaz

Anderson Silva

By FCF Staff

Anderson Silva made his long awaited return to the Octagon tonight, and the legendary fighter emerged from UFC 183 with a victory over Nick Diaz.

Diaz started the fight with a series of taunts, which included at one point, him laying on the ground. Early on, Silva appeared to be rather hesitant and nervous, and wasn’t throwing many kicks with his surgically repaired leg.

As the bout wore on, however, Silva began to open up, and punished Diaz with leg kicks and stiff jabs. In the end, Silva was awarded a unanimous decision victory, and the former middleweight champ broke into tears after the scoring was announced.

In his post-fight interview, Silva said he isn’t sure if he’ll fight again, and will take some time to consider his future.

Diaz, on the other hand, relayed afterwards that he believed he won every round, and questioned whether the judges like his “attitude”.

Here are the results from UFC 183, which went down in the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
