UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is unlikely to headline UFC 95 on February 21st in London as originally anticipated.
Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, confirmed to MMAJunkie.com late yesterday that the February event was too soon for Silva’s next fight and that he’s likely to return in April for a light heavyweight bout, though a fight at UFC 95 hasn’t been completely ruled out.
“As of right now, nothing has been 100 percent decided yet,” said Soares. “It looks like we’re looking to fight in April. We don’t know what can happen, but as of right now, I think we’re going to be fighting in April. It’s not decided yet, but we’d be interested in doing a 205-pound fight. As of right now, I’ll let the UFC announce when they plan on doing it. But as of right now, we’ve told (UFC President) Dana White we’d like to fight in April. But nothing has been confirmed either way.”
