After an injury that made people everywhere gasp and clutch their legs (don't click this link!), former Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva will return to the octagon on January 31st in Las Vegas. Previously, the 39-year-old had waffled on retirement when he fractured both his left tibia and fibula (which was later stabilized with an iron rod), now he'll get his chance to return to the spotlight and face Nick Diaz in a comeback that few (Joe Theismann, Willis McGahee) can even comprehend.

No word yet on what Diaz's plan will be, but to test that left leg? We'd say: bad tact, good strategy.
