Each day, The MMA Corner will provide a recap of results, event announcements, fight match-ups, and injuries/cancellations from throughout the world of MMA.

Silva to receive post-UFC 162 superfight or possible title rematch

Anderson Silva’s next move will count on the result of his UFC 162 bout with Chris Weidman. Should he hand Weidman the first loss of the Serra-Longo prospect’s career, a superfight may await Silva, depending on the result of Jon Jones’ UFC 165 title defense against top title contender Alexander Gustafsson. With a loss to Weidman, however, Silva will see an immediate rematch against Weidman.

Samman replaces Ring, meets Hall at UFC on FS1: Boston

UFC on Fox Sports 1 will go on as planned, but an injury will prevent Nick Ring from coming off of his UFC 158 loss to Chris Camozzi to face Uriah Hall, who dominated The Ultimate 17’s middleweight ranks, only to fall to eventual winner Kelvin Gastelum. Nonetheless, Hall will see action against Josh Samman, whose time on TUF 17 ended with a first-round submission loss to Gastelum. Despite the loss, however, Samman would face Kevin Casey at the show’s finale and score a second-round TKO win.

DirecTV to carry Invicta FC 6

Invicta FC 6 emanates on July 13 and plans to make a successful debut on traditional pay-per-view instead of internet pay-per-view. Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp announced Monday that DirecTV would in fact add their name to the list of cable providers that would carry the event, though the provider would need a couple of days to update their listings to reflect the change. An Invicta featherweight title bout between Cristian “Cyborg” Justino and Marloes Coenen will headline this action-packed event.

Guelmino-Omielanczuk aimed for UFC 165, Bowling-Trujillo meet at UFC on FS1: Indy

Nandor Guelmino lost an opponent in undefeated Derrick Lewis, but 15-3 Daniel Omielanczuk already appeared linked to a UFC 165 date in Toronto with Guelmino. Guelmino vs. Lewis held a spot on the UFC on Fox Sports 1 card on Aug. 28 in Indianapolis, but now a lightweight battle will commence on the card with Roger Bowling vs. Abel Trujillo. While Bowling looks to rebound from a loss to Anthony Njokuani, Trujillo looks to rebound from his UFC 160 loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov.
