Dana White announced that Anderson Silva will face-off against Nick Diaz in a superfight on Superbowl weekeend, January 31, 2015. This UFC bout has been speculated upon, but has now officially come into fruition.

Silva has not entered the octagon since his rematch loss to Chris Weidman at UFC 168 for the middleweight title bout rematch.

Diaz had this to say on his official return to the UFC, "Next year I guess, whatever though. I can fight tomorrow; tonight," he said. "You have to do what you have to do. ... [I came today] to sort things out with Dana White and Lorenzo [Fertitta].

"It was hard times for a little bit, but people act like I've been doing nothing. I've been getting some things done. Just because I'm not getting punched around every day doesn't mean I'm not focused on what I'm doing. Now, here we are."

 Are you excited fight fans?
