Anderson Silva (34-11-0) and Tito Ortiz (21-12-1) are two former UFC champions who will fight this year in the squared circle. On September 11, the two UFC legends are expected to fight under the Triller Fight Club banner.
The fight will take place on the undercard of Oscar De La Hoya vs. Vitor Belfort, according to MMA Fighting. The fight will most likely be fought at a catchweight limit of 195 pounds. Guilherme Cruz, a Brazilian journalist, was the first to break the news
Anderson Silva was last seen on June 19 at the Jalisco Stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico, in a boxing battle with Julio Chavez Jr. The fight was part of the ‘Tribute to the Kings’ bill, which also included Julio Cesar Chavez vs. Hector Camacho Jr. as the main event. Silva’s striking prowess was flawless, as he dominated Chavez Jr. for the majority of the bout. The fight lasted the distance, and ‘The Spider’ won by split decision in his third professional fight. The 46-year-old MMA pioneer may have seen success in his most recent fights, but he has no professional boxing experience whatsoever. Undoubtedly, Ortiz will face adversity when he takes on Anderson Silva at Staples Center in Los Angeles on September 11.
