Silva And Taleb Allegedly Involved In Hotel Altercation

Claudio Silva made a triumphant return to the Octagon after a near four-year hiatus by taking out Nordine Taleb in the very first round via rear-naked choke in the very first round at last weekend’s (Sun., May 27, 2018) UFC Fight Night 130 event in Liverpool, England.

But, the two combatants almost went for round two following the fight, as they were involved in an altercation at the host hotel after an irate Nordine allegedly approached Silva to call foul play for his antics during the fight.

“The UFC has to take notice. He needs to be punished,” Silva told MMA Junkie. “He kicked me in the leg as I was sitting on the ground,” Silva said. “He said, ‘(Expletive) you, you’re a (expletive). You robbed me. You didn’t win that fight. You told the referee I was holding your gloves and then you got the choke.’

According to Silva, Nordine hurled plenty of homophobic slurs and even stated if anyone ever spoke to him in that manner he “would kill them.” Eventually, Taleb’s teammates separated the two and prevented it from coming to blows, though Silva never expected to go that far on his end.

“I’m a professional fighter at the end of the day,” Silva said. “It’s not professional to say those kinds of words. And man, I feel really bad for the sport. I come to fight. I don’t hate anyone. I just came there and did my job,” he added.

“I just looked at him and laughed, because we don’t have to do these kinds of things. We are professional fighters. We get paid to fight. It’s really bad for the sport. I’ve never experienced it before.”

While the Brazilian bomber expects the promotion to punish Taleb in due to violation of the promotion’s guidelines and code of conduct, he won’t settle their beef by granting him a do-over.

Midnight Mania! Watch Anderson Silva Lay Out Three Men

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Former middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva was the closest thing the UFC had to an action hero for many years. No one could quite do what he did in real fights in the Octagon. Now he’s executing some of those moves against rather more cooperative opponents, on set.

This isn’t an uncommon route for current and former mixed martial artists. Josh Thomson spends time making Chinese movies; Ronda Rousey is doing live stunts in the WWE as well as small acting roles; Donald Cerrone makes money as a stunt man and actor; Cung Le, the only middleweight to have a showier skillset than Anderson, has been doing his own stunts in B-rated movies and TV for years. Andrei Arlovski is pretty good at fake fighting. Gina Carano is a good enough actor to carry whole movies alongside A-list stars like Channing Tatum. Randy Couture was in Expendables alongside Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham.

Eeees normal.

Anderson, whose later career has been marred by repeat drug test failures, has no shortage of ideas for his career after fighting, including a commentary gig on Netflix show Ultimate Beastmaster.

‘Rampage Vs. Silva 4’ Reportedly Coming To Brazil

Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans may never get to see “Liddell vs. Ortiz 3”, but they may, in fact, get the next best thing. And it, too, is a battle between two legends of the sport.

MMA Junkie (via Gazeta Do Povo) reports that Bellator MMA is working on a historic fourth match between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and “The Axe Murderer” Wanderlei Silva, with Silva stating that the match would take place at Arena da Baixada in his hometown of Curitiba, Brazil.

When asked for his comment on the match up, Bellator President Scott Coker said he was unsure which weight class it would be in. Based on Rampage’s recent fights, though, one could assume it would be either a Catchweight or Heavyweight tilt. Coker also said a date and venue have not yet been chosen.

The rivalry between Silva and Jackson started in 2003 at the finals of the PRIDE Middleweight Grand Prix, when Silva scored a technical knockout via knees in the first round. Silva got the better of him in similar fashion almost one year later at PRIDE 28, but “Rampage” finally got his revenge at UFC 92 and cashed in a ”Knockout of the Night” bonus in the process.

What’s in store when they finally meet for a fourth time? Fireworks!

Midnight Mania! Roy Jones Jr. gets decision win in final fight, says Anderson Silva is only other option

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Roy Jones Jr. officially capped a long and illustrious career, tonight on UFC Fight Pass. He was unable to put away his overmatched opponent, Scott Sigmon, who he styled on for 10 rounds, winning 98-92 on all three scorecards. Sigmon stayed game, coming forward, thumping at Roy’s body with arm punches to the body.

Compared to Roy Jones Jr., he was clearly athletically out of his depth, something the commentators were very open about. Roy revealed that he had torn his bicep before the fight, perhaps the reason he wasn’t able to get the KO.

I don’t make excuses, but all y’all can call the Andrews Institute and they’ll tell you that last week, I tore my left bicep once again. But because it was Pensacola, I refused to pull out.

Roy reiterated afterwards what he stated beforehand- that Anderson Silva is the only matchup that could draw him out of retirement.

Last but not least, Dana, I know you listening. I know Anderson’s suspended, but that’s the ONLY fight that Roy Jones may return to the ring for. Other than that, chapter closed.
