Every Sunday, The MMA Corner will take a look back at the biggest news of the week.

On this week’s installment, we discuss Wanderlei Silva’s removal from UFC 175. The former Pride FC champion has been replaced by Vitor Belfort against Chael Sonnen. After the bizarre reports about the sequence of events that led up to Silva’s removal, could the “Axe Murderer” be done in the UFC? Does the Belfort-Sonnen fight make sense in the UFC’s middleweight landscape?

We also look at the recent announcement that Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown will headline UFC on Fox 12 on July 26 in San Jose, Calif. The winner will earn a title shot against champion Johny Hendricks later this year. With the announcement, is the UFC disrespecting other top contenders Tyron Woodley and Rory MacDonald who meet at UFC 174 on June 14?

It was recently revealed that Michael Bisping and Cung Le will headline the UFC’s return to China in August. To date, Bisping has never been able to get over the hump and challenge for UFC gold. Does the Brit have a final run at contending left in him?

Bellator’s pay-per-view event is rumored to have reached 100,000 buys. Is this a promising sign for the promotion? Is it repeatable?

Finally, we’ll touch on the UFC’s Saturday doubleheader. What went right? What went wrong? Should fans expect it to be a common occurrence?

  • I hate to see a legend in MMA go out like this. Wandy has imploded, and even Brazilian fans have had enough after his absurd antics on TUF.
