The UFC's debut in China has another intriguing fight scheduled, as fierce striker Thiago Silva (14-3, 1 NC MMA; 5-3, 1 NC UFC) returns to action for the first time since April, facing Bulgarian Stanislav Nedkov (12-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in Macau for UFC on FUEL TV 6. Silva's manager Glenn Robinson confirmed the news with Sherdog.

I'll take Silva because I think he is more skilled overall, but Nedkov hits so hard that this is almost a toss up for me.

Glenn Robinson? Big Dog?

Cheering for Nedkov in this one. I think he sends a message to the division with a knockout on Silva.

Edit: This card is looking fantastic

I'm just awed by the fact that they are having an event in China. They got into China before New York approved MMA. Damn.

Good call! New York is looking pretty foolish right now.

Back to the issue at hand though... this fight is fucking awesome! Silva and Nedkov are brutal. I can't believe this will only be Nedkov's second UFC fight. It was actually a year ago today he made his debut, KO'ing Luiz Cane.

Worst thing is Nedkovs been under UFC contract since June 2010! The guys plagued with injuries but a banger for sure.

If they rescheduled Maldonado vs Nedkov, he'd be in for a war. Shame he's against the most dominant force in MMA.

Thiago takes this. Brutally.

It sure does.

That thought hadn't even occurred to me .


It's only a matter of time though before NY folds .

Madison Square Garden is going to be an EPIC show. The UFC I predict will make a super stacked card for their first event in New York . Just to show em what they have been missing

Yeah, I mean MSG is the Mecca of combat sports in this country. When and if they finally get there the UFC is going to put together a gigantic card, probably bigger than any we've seen so far from top to bottom.

Silva's job is definitively on the line here. I'm really hoping he brings it this fight and sends Nedkov to the hospital

Looks like there are about 0 Chinese guys on a China card. I'm thinking this card wont do that well with the level of nationalism the Chinese have with their athletes and fighters. Hell I'm not even sure they will accept MMA over San Shou or their local martial arts yet, it'll be interesting.
