Brock Lesnar returning to the UFC?
LAS VEGAS – With the biggest fight of the year going down on Saturday night at UFC 168, one of the UFC’s biggest draws might be cageside to view it. This week there were rumors that heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar would attend Saturday night’s rematch between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman. Exactly why Lesnar is coming to Las Vegas for the fight has become a thing of speculation, but as usual people are beginning to whisper that maybe the UFC has something up its sleeve. During Thursday’s post-press conference media scrum, UFC president Dana White was asked point blank if the UFC would take the opportunity to talk business with Lesnar. "I honestly don’t know," he said, repressing a grin like a man who just might know more than he wanted to say. "Honestly?" somebody goaded. "Honestly," White said, "I don’t know."

UFC 168’s Chris Weidman on first Anderson Silva fight: ‘I don’t think I looked that good’
UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman doesn’t have any answers to the questions about which Anderson Silva will show up to Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena Saturday night in UFC 168’s pay-per-view headliner. Will it be the focused Silva with incredibly accurate, one-shot power in his strikes? Or will it be the Silva who goofs around in the cage, taunting and publicly humiliating his foe in front of thousands in attendance and millions more watching at home? To the reigning 185-pound champion, it doesn’t matter which version of “The Spider” walks into the arguably the biggest UFC fight of the year. Weidman is focused purely on which version of himself shows up.
