Anderson Silva (pictured) returned from one of the most gruesome injuries in MMA history on Saturday night when he headlined UFC 183 against Nick Diaz. Silva said he wouldn’t hesitate to unleash left kicks and expose the shin he broke in two just 13 months ago, but there was some reservation early on.
However, it didn’t take Silva long to find comfort in using one of his deadliest weapons against Diaz.
Diaz was also returning from an extended hiatus, although his break was by choice. Diaz came back from retirement for the second straight time to welcome Silva back to action.
Unfortunately for Diaz, things didn’t go his way against “The Spider.” Silva took home a lopsided (49-46, 50-45, 50-45) unanimous decision win.
Lopsided, you say? Diaz said he thought he won every round.
UFC 183 took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
