UFC 183: Silva vs. Diaz takes place on January 31st, 2015.  Former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva returns from a broken leg to face briefly retired former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz. It's a strange fight, but an absolutely intriguing one, and this episode we discuss just where these two fighters are at going into Saturday night's main event.

Following that, we break down the rest of the UFC 183 card, including a high level Welterweight co-main event between Tyron Woodley and Kelvin Gastelum.

Finally, after a quick diversion to discuss the arrest of Brian Bowles, we spend the rest of the episode recapping last weekend's massive UFC On Fox: Gustafsson vs. Johnson show from Stockholm.

Hosted by Steve Jeffery, Dave Abraham, and Greg Persson.
