    It has been the talk at office water heaters for months now that the primary event for March’s UFC 197 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil may be a rematch between Brazilian middleweights Anderson”The Spider” Silva and”The Phenom” Vitor Belfort. Their very first bout happened at UFC 126 almost five years back, in which Silva succesfully defended his UFC middleweight title with a front-kick knockout of Belfort, ultimately recording arguably the most used highlight in UFC history. The news of the rematch gets fight fans giddy with excitement. So much so that it becomes easy to block out their current legal issues. Silva last saw activity 10 weeks back, where he conquered Nick Diaz via unanimous conclusion on the judges’ scorecards. The consequence of this five circular main event bout was later turned into a No Contest, if the former UFC middleweight champion tested positive for having drostanolone and androsterone within his or her system. Having served his suspension”The Spider” is ready to create his return to the Octagon and word is he’s found himself a struggle. This rematch will come after a rubbermatch for Belfort, who is coming off a first round knockout of Dan Henderson, which took place just weeks ago at UFC Fight Night 77 at Brazil. This had been an impressive way for”The Phenom” to return to the win column after a failed bid at present winner Chris Weidman and his golden, and also another remarkable victory over”The Spider” in this rematch, he could certainly make a case to get a rematch with the winner of UFC 194’s Weidman vs Rockhold. The rumored UFC 197 main event is widely talked about, largely in part due to UFC President Dana White acknowledging that Silva vs Belfort II is the next fight he wants to book to both veteran 185-pounders. The night’s co-headliner was rumored to be a middleweight match-up involving Lyoto Machida and Michael Bisping, but that has been demonstrated not to be the case when the Michael Bisping vs Gegard Mousasi match-up was announced earlier this week. The two goes to war in the main event for February’s UFC Fight Night 83 at Bisping’s backyard of London. Brazilian fighters That Are not currently booked for fights that we could see about the UFC 197 fight card are Thomas de Almeida, Glover Teixeira, Iuri Alcantara, Thales Leites, Rani Yahya, Alan Patrick, Kevin Souza, Leandro Silva, Hacran Dias, John Lineker, Valmir Lazaro, Michel Prazeres, Erick Silva, Bigfoot Silva, Thiago Tavares, Godofredo Pepey, Roan Carneiro, Pedro Munhoz and Thiago Alves.
