The UFC Fight Night 84: Silva vs. Bisping live stream online event takes place on Saturday from London, England as “The Spider” tries to reclaim the glory he had as a dominant fighter in the division for many years. He may have a tough task, as he’ll take on the No. 7-ranked fighter in Michael Bisping, a man who has never lost a fight while in his home area of England. Bisping originally had a non-main event fight on this card against Gegard Mousasi, but Mousasi was replaced back in late December by former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. Mousasi will also be a part of the main card still, taking on Thales Leites. The UFC Fight Night live streaming online coverage will arrive from the O2 Arena in England on Saturday afternoon for MMA fight fans to enjoy.
According to Fox Sports in their Feb. 26 report, an intense stare down took place on Friday in London as Bisping was 185 pounds and Silva a pound heavier during weigh-ins. The pre-fight event didn’t come without some serious trash talk coming via Bisping in front of his fans in England as he said pointing towards Silva, “This man is a cheat. This man is a fraud and I will make you pay for your mistakes tomorrow night my friend. All the needles in your ass, all the steroids, will not help you.” Silva had previously tested positive for various illegal substances prior to his last fight at UFC 183. The former champion didn’t really respond to the taunts ahead of this match in which he’ll look to bounce back from the losing streak.
“The Spider” is now attempting to make a serious comeback and run at the championship again for the Middleweight division. Prior to his testing positive for illegal substances at UFC 183, he was on a two-fight losing streak, first losing the UFC Middleweight Championship to Chris Weidman, and then failing in the rematch attempt. His overall record sits at 33-6 (1), with the one being a no contest against Nick Diaz at 183. On the opposing side, Bisping is 28-7 and on a two-fight winning streak. His most recent victory came at UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Leites in July of last year via split decision. Prior to that, he won by unanimous decision over C.B. Holloway in Canada at UFC 186 pay-per-view. On Saturday, he gets “home field” advantage, fighting in his native England, where he has yet to lose a fight.
Heading into Saturday’s main card, Silva is still considered the favorite with a price of -305 on the moneyline compared to +235 for Bisping. Mousasi is also a favorite of -325 against Leites at +250, while Tom Breese is a huge -1100 favorite against Keita Nakamura at +650. Rounding out the main card, Francisco Rivera will be a slight favorite to win with a -170 price, while Brad Pickett has a price of +140 in what appears to be a close matchup. Other favorites from prelim fights will include Davey Grant and Makwan Amirkhani at -190, Scott Askham at -360, Arnold Allen at -335 and Krzysztof at -170 to defeat Brad Scott (+140).
