Anderson Silva Says He’s Likely Fighting Michael Bisping at UFC Event in Curitiba Next Year

Anderson Silva Says He’s Likely Fighting Michael Bisping at UFC Event in Curitiba Next Year
As VIP guests at Friday’s Eurasia Fight Nights in Dagestan, Anderson Silva and Fabricio Werdum caused quite the stir backstage at the event. If Silva is to be believed, their next appearance together could be atop a UFC pay-per-view bill in early 2016.

In an interview during the event, Silva said that he will make his Octagon return next year in Curitiba, Brazil, on the same card that Werdum will defend the heavyweight crown in a rematch against Cain Velasquez.

“I think I fight in Curitiba in April, on the same card Fabricio Werdum will face Cain Velasquez,” Silva said. “My opponent will be Michael Bisping. I´m not quite sure, but I think it´s him.”

The UFC has made no formal announcement regarding such an event, but MMAFighting.com is reporting that the Las Vegas-based promotion is working on putting together a card at the 42,000-seat Arena da Baixada stadium. Bisping is currently booked to face Robert Whittaker at UFC 193 on Nov. 14, while Silva is serving a one-year suspension after testing positive for steroids at UFC 183. “The Spider” will be eligible to return to action in February.

World Master Jiu-Jitsu IBJJF Championship 2015
The event had many of the top athletes from today and yesterday and it was really competitive, however the IBJJF took a step back in the organizatio in two areas as fights where running late by hour or more at times and the location left a lot to be desired.

No Holds Barred: Ricardo Liborio, Superfight Champion

No Holds Barred: Ricardo Liborio, ADCC Stars Superfight Champion 

Written by: EDDIE GOLDMAN
2015-09-19
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and grappling legend Ricardo Liborio, who is the co-founder and head instructor of American Top Team (http://americantopteam.com).


Now at age 48, he competed in the ADCC Stars Superfight on August 29 at the 2015 ADCC Submission Fighting World Championship, which was held August 29-30 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The ADCC Submission Fighting World Championship is the most important and prestigious grappling tournament in the world, and as always featured competition in no-gi grappling.

His opponent was fellow 48-year-old Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and grappling legend Ze Mario Sperry, who had defeated Renzo Gracie at ADCC 2011 and Fabio Gurgel at ADCC 2013 in those Stars Superfights.

This time, however, the result was different, as Ricardo Liborio, an underdog and giving up size, was able to emerge victorious in a grueling match which needed two overtimes to determine a winner by decision.

We spoke with Ricardo Liborio by phone Wednesday.

"What really differentiates Mario is his ability of wrestling," he said, knowing that this match would be very tough. 
"And Mario's a very big strategist," he said. "He works a lot on people's mistakes. And especially when the people do the wrong shot, and he is very good at capitalizing on it. He goes for the front headlock, and the front headlock he spins to the back, and usually people don't take the pressure, or feeling pressed on the back, they pull guard for grappling."

Noting that this had been Sperry's strategy against Fabio Gurgel and Renzo Gracie, he said, "I trained a lot of wrestling. I trained a lot of wrestling. This is what's key for me. The reality is I trained even more wrestling than I trained ground, because I knew this was going to be something like this."

He elaborated on his wrestling training, which included working with, among many others, Mo Lawal and Steve Mocco, both of whom had been U.S. national champion wrestlers, and Antoine Jaoude, who had been a Brazilian national champion wrestler.

We also discussed more on this match itself, how this was an incredible "journey to get where I was," how training for competition after not having competed for many years benefited his health, plans to compete next year in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu masters' match, how more spectators can be brought to grappling, why he thinks that No Holds Barred is "pure art," and much, much more.

The final session at the historic Carlson Gracie Academy in Rio

Final group photo at the Carlson Gracie Academy, in Rio. Photo by Luca Atalla

People started showing up little by little. The clock showed 5PM on a rainy evening of Tuesday when the first ones climbed the stairs for the final session at the historic Carlson Gracie Academy, at 414 Figueiredo de Magalhães St., in Copacabana.The host of the event was Carlson’s son, Carlson Gracie Jr. After 40 years of great service for Jiu-Jitsu, the school which symbol is a fierce but captivating bulldog is set to close its doors.
Alessandro “Fandango” was one of the first black belts to enter the famous dojo with blue mats. Disabled since he was victim of a terrible car accident, Fandango would not be stopped by the lack of elevators and made it to the third floor. He asked for the help of others and when one of those carrying him up started to breathe heavily, he said: “Come on, pace your breathing. That’s Jiu-Jitsu’s first lesson.”
It wasn’t just a farewell for former Carlson Gracie students. People from many other schools were present, like Alliance, Gracie Barra, Nova Geração, BTT, Gracie Humaitá. There were people from Chile, Japan, America and Canada, like Renzo Gracie Ottawa’s Pat Cooligan. The media was also there, and not only the Jiu-Jitsu media, but regular newspapers and TV stations from all over Brazil. Carlson Gracie Jr. explained many times why the school is closing: “It is by request of my mother, who cannot run the school anymore due to health reasons and the fact that I live in the USA.”
Part of the incredible roster of talents bred at the Carlson Gracie school was also there, like Carlão Barreto, Ricardo Libório, Ricardo de la Riva, Amaury Bitetti, Paulão Filho.
Reyson Gracie, Antonio Santos “Apaga Vela”, Master Orlando Saraiva and others were also present. The t-shirt handed out at the event read: “Legends never die.” Mauricio Carneiro, one of Carlson black belts said: “This Mecca of Jiu-Jitsu, which saw the birth of the strongest army of black belts and its founder will never die. Wherever there’s a Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, there will always be a Carlson Gracie seed.”
A moment of silence was observed in honor of Carlson and his son made the closing speech.
“Next year, 2016, marks ten years of my father’s passing. He had problems with some of his students but that is now part of the past. So I urge you to once again fight under the Carlson Gracie flag at the 2016 IBJJF Worlds Masters. Let’s go there and win another championship in his honor to prove the Carlson Gracie team is still the best.”
