Chris Weidman Injured Again, Rousey vs. Zingano Now Headlines UFC 184

("Okay, Al, you need to get back on your feet and...dammit, there goes the other knee." Via Getty.)  I know what you're thinking, "A champion who can't stay healthy? WHAT SPORT IS THIS?" Well, it's MMA, dum-dum. Nothing ever goes according to plan; just ask Alexander Gustafsson. Or middleweight champ Chris Weidman, for that matter, who has once again been forced out of his bout with Vitor Belfort due to injury. We now kick it to our man in the field, Bunk Moreland, for analysis... Details after the jump.

Four Opponents Anderson Silva Could Face Next Instead Of Chris Weidman

(Sadly, a rematch with Lady Pavlova remains off the table.) By CP Reader Nasir Jabbar
This weekend, Anderson Silva comes back from his grizzly leg-injury when he takes on Stockton's finest, Nick Diaz. UFC president Dana White has stated that Silva could face the winner of Weidman-Belfort if victorious, which seems relatively insane given that he is fighting a welterweight coming off a two year vacation (UFC politics, baby!). The possibility of Belfort-Silva 2 could be huge especially in Brazil, but whether Silva wants to fight against a Brazilian is another question. If normality remains with Weidman trouncing the-now-off-TRT-Belfort, Weidman-Silva 3 is a fight I would actually pass up. Both meetings ended bizarrely, with the second fight ending more unusual than their first, as crazy as that was. Silva has gone 0-2 opposite Weidman, and in the twelve or so minutes of action between them, its fair to say that Weidman has gotten the better of Silva. So instead of playing a (literally) broken record, here are four possible opponents the GOAT could face off with if he wins or loses at UFC 183, because, you know, he still has a few fights left on his new contract.

The Biggest Win To Date For Lauzon Family

Joe Lauzon is known as the “Bonus King” in the UFC, having picked up 13 performance of the night honors. However, his biggest victory pales in comparison to that won by his son, Joey. Check out the video below to see Joey’s win over cancer:

[VIDEO] Nick Diaz’s Bizarre, Insightful, Hilarious, Incomprehensible UFC 183 Media Scrum

("I hope to in the future and nowadays come off as the best type of role model I can be. You know, even though I'm missing a Wednesday on a big event like this, you know, kids, remember to brush your teeth." -- actual quote from Nick Diaz.)  Whether you're a fan of his or not, it's hard to deny that Nick Diaz is one of the most intriguing/confounding figures in our sport. In a sea of wolf ticket-slinging jabronis, he's the anti-bullshit superhero that MMA wants, and dare I say it, needs. And my God is the man quotable to no end, whether intentionally or otherwise. Having now watched his UFC 183 media scrum three times in a row, I can only compare the experience to that of a David Lynch movie -- it's long, rambling, ambiguous bordering on incomprehensible, and by the time it's over, I'm both completely unsure of what I saw and ready to watch it again. Such is Stockton's finest. Conor McGregor may be able to capture our attention with his arrogant, self-inflating and occasionally witty takedowns of every fighter in his division, but Diaz's ability to captivate an audience by saying absolutely nothing while using as many half-uttered words as possible is second to none. Check out Diaz's full UFC 183 media scrum after the jump to see what we mean.

CagePotato Ban: Talking About, or Even Hinting At the Possibility of Gina Carano’s Return to MMA

You see this photo? It was posted by Zoila Frausto over the weekend, with the caption "Today's training session @csagym was with these two!! They were awesome and I feel so fortunate!" On the right is none other than former Strikeforce featherweight star Gina Carano. As you might expect, this photo has led to rampant speculation that "Conviction" might be returning to MMA, but for realz this time. And we are here to say that not only is Carano not returning to MMA, but that we as a community need to stop discussing or even hinting at the idea of Carano fighting in the UFC, Bellator, WSOF, Titan FC, or the long defunct YAMMA pit fighting. In fact, it is far more likely that YAMMA pit fighting will experience a renaissance than Ms. Carano's MMA career, so for the good of us all, we need to let her go quietly into that good night.

Gambling Addiction Enabler: UFC 183 Edition

(Silva hilariously reacts to the news that Diaz has missed his open workouts, via ZombieProphet.) Can we level with you for a second, Nation? Last week, we dropped a ridiculous amount of money on a Krylov + Sicilia + Bader + Lusty Gusty parlay. Three quarters of the way through it, we felt like the precogs in Minority Report, and were already buying up rounds at the bar for complete strangers. "As soon as Gustafsson levels Rumble, free Patron for everyone!" we shouted to a chorus of cheers and back pats. The air of confidence surging through us was addictive, to the point that we even asked our high school crush, Jenny Bracegirdle, out on a date. Just coffee, but still, we were feeling it. And then, the rug was swept out from under us, as it so often is. We mean literally. We couldn't pay our tab, and the bouncers wrapped us in a rug and heaved us into a dumpster. Needless to say, Jenny Bracegirdle has yet to return our calls. The point is, we could use a little extra cash this weekend, and we're sure you could as well. Which is why we brought back our gambling expert, Dan George, to break out an old favorite and potentially save us from yet another weekend spent nursing our fractured egos (also, wrists). So join us after the jump for the return of the Gambling Addiction Enabler: UFC 183 Edition.

The One Who Knocks (People Out): Brian Bowles Arrested For Possession of Meth

(Photo via MMAWeekly.) You guys remember Brian Bowles, right? The pasty, Mark Wahlberg-looking UFC veteran best known for (figuratively) ending Miguel Torres' career? Anything? I wouldn't blame you if you're coming up short, as the former WEC bantamweight champion has been MIA since getting TKO'd by George Roop at UFC 160 and subsequently failing his post-fight drug test. Well as it turns out, ol' Bowlesy has spent his time away from the octagon pursuing various...pursuits that wouldn't exactly fall in line with what you'd expect of MMA fighters not named Charles Bennett. Mainly, mainlining meth and valium.

Dun Dada: Fantasy-Picking Kimbo Slice’s Opponent For His Bellator Debut

(And to think, had Kimbo landed his signature headbutt to the groin that night, EliteXC might still be in operation. Photo via Divulgação.) By CagePotato reader BJ Last Welcome back to Sliceworld! The man who took the internet by storm in 2003, turned into a popular MMA circus act in 2007, fell from relevance in 2010, started boxing jobbers in 2012, and everyone sort of forgot about in 2014, is now signed with the second biggest MMA promotion in the world. The only question remaining now -- aside from why? and also huh? -- is who should be Slice's first opponent under the Bellator banner? Scott Coker & Co. have two options, as far as I see it: 1) They can try to find Slice a “legitimate” (yes, there’s a reason for air quotes) opponent in an attempt to rebuild him as a genuinely dangerous MMA fighter. 2) They can channel their inner Japanese MMA promotion and go full freakshow. I’ll tell you what I want (what I really, really want), or at least what I see as the most likely options for each scenario. Let's start with the “legitimate” opponents...

Distinguishing “The Fighter” From “The Mixed Martial Artist”: Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz

(Countdown to UFC 183: Silva vs. Diaz via the UFC's Youtube channel) By CagePotato reader Rory Daniel The phrase "fighting is in our DNA" is thrown around a lot these days and has inspired many a high quality piece of merchandise (LMAO), but does it actually have any bearing on real people? Like many hyperbolic, stupid, "sportsy" statements, it is both frustratingly vague and can be applied to both of this weekends main eventers, albeit in completely different ways.

Tito Ortiz Brushes Off a Potential Fight With Kimbo Slice, And For Once, He’s In the Right

(Does this man strike you as someone who would trade in his dignity for a quick buck? Didn't think so.) By CP Reader Marcos Rego With plenty of dark clouds hanging overhead this week, I thought it would be best to bring some cheer to the wonderful boys and girls of CP in the only way I know how: A series of jokes about Tito Ortiz disguised as an article. (Think of me as that uncle who gave you your first beer at age 15…but less creepy and allowed to go near public schools). Repressed childhood memories aside, did you hear?! Tito Ortiz thinks fighting Kimbo Slice makes about as much sense as putting Fritos on a pizza. And for once, he's right!
