The Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced that UFC middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva will battle PRIDE middleweight champion “Dangerous” Dan Henderson at UFC 82.
Rumors of the fight surfaced last week on ‘The Bubba The Love Sponge Show’ when Bubba stated that he spoke with Henderson and he had mentioned that his next fight be against UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva. UFC president Dana White confirmed the rumors during the post-fight press conference for UFC 78: Validation.
UFC 82 is currently scheduled for March 1 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
