The year before, he had beaten Chuck Liddell in the opening round of a trilogy match.

In June 2021, Anderson Silva, known as the "The Spider", returned to the ring to face former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., who he defeated in 1998 and 2005. It took Silva nearly twice as many punches to defeat Chavez Jr. and the judges gave him a split decision victory. Silva shows no signs of slowing down, stating that he has three more years of fighting in him.
Ortiz has won three of his previous four fights in the opening round, including victories against Chuck Liddell and Chael Sonnen. Silva is the bookies' favorite to win the eight-round bout against Ortiz. Both competitors are aged 46, thus the weekend's fight program is loaded with warriors past their peak.
