UFC Fight Night 36 will feature the return of Erick Silva against Nate Loughran
UFC Fight Night 36 will feature the return of Erick Silva against Nate Loughran in Jaragua do Sul on Feb. 15. Silva (14-4, 1 no-contest), who has fought five of his six UFC bouts in his native country, looks to get back in the win column after suffering a second-round knockout loss to Dong Hyun Kim at UFC Fight Night 29. Loughran (11-1) returns to the UFC after back-to-back wins since he left the promotion. Loughran went 1-1 inside the Octagon back in 2008 with his loss being a TKO due to injury against Tim Credeur. He picked up a decision win after four years away from MMA in March 2012.

Fortunes changed for five at UFC Fight Night 33
In the wake of Saturday's (well, Friday in North America) Mark Hunt vs. Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva fight and multiple viewings, there are a lot of thoughts in looking back. Hunt (9-8-1) and Silva (18-5-1) put on a must-see performance. But this has been a year loaded with classics, from Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann, Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson, Gilbert Melendez vs. Diego Sanchez, Dennis Bermudez vs. Matt Grice and even Georges St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks. In February, after the Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche fight, I figured with the historical implications and excitement of that fight, it would be a fight of the year candidate and even possible winner. Today, I wouldn't even consider it for top five...
