If time apart makes the heart grow fonder, Georges St-Pierre is likely counting down the days until he can return to training and get back to competition form.

Firas Zahabi, St-Pierre’s close friend and trainer, revealed to MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani over the weekend that he fully expects St-Pierre to end his MMA hiatus after he recovers from a torn ACL in his left knee.

“Georges is doing fantastic. I think [he’ll be back]. I think there’s a lot of fire left in him, especially that he’s got injured now,” said Zahabi. “He’s probably more motivated than ever, and he was just about to start sparring again before he got injured. I think there’s a lot of martial arts left in him.”

St-Pierre never officially retired from MMA competition. During a media phone conference in December 2013, the French Canadian star announced that he would be vacating his UFC title and going on an extended hiatus.

Despite his time away from the sport, St-Pierre has remained active in training by helping teammates prepare for upcoming bouts. He announced via Twitter in March that he had torn his left ACL during a training session.

St-Pierre has always left the door open for a possible return to the UFC, but it’s a known fact that ACL injuries aren’t easy to overcome for even the most elite athletes. Quite frankly, some athletes are never the same again after ACL injuries.

But for St-Pierre, this isn’t his first rodeo when it comes to devastating knee injuries. He was out of competition for nearly 18 months after tearing his right ACL in 2011. Some of the same questions rose about his future before he returned and silenced the critics by defeating Carlos Condit, Nick Diaz and Johny Hendricks.

As skeptics learned back then, it’s unwise to ever question the heart and determination of Georges St-Pierre.

Fans are patiently waiting for The Ultimate Fighter 20, which will feature an all-women’s cast of strawweights and will crown the first champion ever. However, the finale will not feature the first strawweight bout in UFC history, as that will go down July 16 in Atlantic City.

Marc Raimondi of Fox Sports announced Wednesday afternoon that UFC Fight Night 45 will feature the first 115-pound bout between Brazilian Claudia Gadelha and Finland’s own Tina Lahdemaki

Gadelha, who was originally supposed to be on the TUF 20 cast, pulled out of the reality show after weight cut issues would become a recurring problem on the show. Instead, she was given a free pass to the company where she will now lead the charge into the promotion.

Gadelha, ranked number three in B/R’s WMMA rankings last month, is undefeated at 11-0. Training out of Nova Uniao, the Brazilian demolisher trains alongside Jose Aldo, Renan Barao and a murderer’s row of other training partners.

Plus, it’s not like Gadelha has been beating chumps. She has been fighting at a high level for years and has already earned wins over the likes of top Brazilian strawweight Kalindra Faria, current UFC employee Valerie Letourneau and Japanese legend Ayaka Hamasaki, her latest bout.

As for Lahdemaki, she makes a drop from 125 pounds to occupy one of the strawweight roster spots with the UFC. Like Gadelha, she is undefeated, though she is much more inexperienced at 5-0. That being said, she is currently ranked #11 in B/R’s WMMA rankings last month.

A grappler, Lahdemaki has finished three of her five fights, including her most recent outing against Spanish veteran Karla Benitez. She also owns a win over Swedish prospect Linn Wennergren, which has earned her some respect.

This fight definitely has an interesting matchup and a great weight on its shoulders as the first women’s bouts. Both women are great grapplers and should match up well in terms of size.

Gadelha is known for her strength and powerful strikes, which should be her great edge. However, fans will be surprised with the skill and grit of Lahdemaki, who is definitely the lesser known fighter here.

For more updates on the strawweight division and UFC FN 45, stay with Bleacher Report as the information becomes available.

Anderson Silva has been on the road to recovery ever since breaking his leg in a rematch against Chris Weidman for the UFC Middleweight Championship.

As his return nears, the talk about his recovery has switched to who he will fight. Silva’s camp brought up the name Nick Diaz, and on last week’s UFC Tonight it was confirmed that this would be a fight to pull Diaz out of retirement.

With both fighters down to fight, there is little to no reason this should not be signed for a future card when Silva is healthy. This is perfect.

It is apparent that Diaz only wants superfights or title fights, and this is most certainly a superfight. He likes to fight strikers who will stand and exchange with him, and Silva fits that mold. You can toss out the notion of a grappling battle between these two, although that in itself would be fun to watch.

The return of Silva will be highly anticipated and an event onto itself. Handing him an opponent who wants to stand with him, and will likely taunt while doing so, is the greatest idea on this combat sport planet.

Both Diaz and Silva are polarizing figures. They generate interest from fans and non-fans. One of the reasons they are so polarizing is the aforementioned taunting.

Diaz will talk to his opponents, throw his hands out challenging them to throw strikes and even stick out his head from time to time. Silva will oblige.

Silva dances. He puts his hands down, bobs and weaves and calls for his opponents to battle him where he is best. Diaz will oblige.

Diaz is no stranger to the middleweight division. He has gone up in weight for prime-time bouts before. He met Frank Shamrock at a catchweight near the 180-pound mark. The Stockton native does not care about weight. He will fight anyone.

Diaz and Silva are in similar places. They are not in a position to challenge for a title, but they’re still beloved enough that they almost demand to be placed in main event fights. This makes them perfect opposition for each other.

What are the other options? Leave Diaz to his retirement and ask him to fight welterweights he has no interest in fighting? Have Silva return against a middling middleweight that will draw little or no interest from fans other than Silva’s return itself?

Those are not options that should make you happy. When thinking about what makes sense, what is fun and what fans would line up to hand over their hard-earned money for, this is the best idea. Diaz vs. Silva. The announcement alone would generate a buzz, and when the fight poster is released many would become giddy knowing it is actually going to happen.

Fans clamor for exciting fights, and this gives us all that. A can’t-miss event that will entertain. Diaz vs. Silva is too perfect not to happen. It is the best idea for a fight that the UFC currently has available to them. The notion that it is possible, and that both are interested, puts a smile on my face. I’m sure it does to yours as well.

Mr. White, Mr. Silva, Mr. Fertitta—please sign this fight. Make us happy.

There is something in the air in Albuquerque, or perhaps it is in the water. Or perhaps it is nowhere at all.

The popularity of the AMC show “Breaking Bad” led to scores of jokes about the Albuquerque desert. Some are warranted, but most are spun from the same type of fictional arcs Walter White and Jesse Pinkman played out on a weekly basis for a devoted audience.

Albuquerque is really just a city. It is non-descript, and the nicest thing that you might say about it is that it has high elevation and the mountains on the edge of town are pretty. It is not a destination, unless you are a world-class fighter. If that is the case, then there’s every chance you will find yourself in Albuquerque because Greg Jackson and Mike Winklejohn once found themselves in Albuquerque.

Much of our Albuquerque knowledge comes from television. There is a good chance all of it is wrong. But there is zero doubt something weird was in the air on Saturday night, when the UFC paid their first visit to the Land of Jackson and Winklejohn.

For starters, there was Jackson himself, talking in a Russian accent to his fighter Rustam Khabilov. It was there on the television, and we heard it plain as day. This is a little joke Jackson and his fighters have in the gym; he affects a terrible Russian accent for his Dagestani fighters, and they do their best (terrible) impression of an American accent. Everyone laughs. Good times are had by all.

But without any context, hearing Jackson tear into his best Nikolai Volkoff impersonation was jarring. You wondered: Is Greg Jackson actually speaking in a Russian accent right now? Am I hearing this? And WHY is Greg Jackson speaking in a Russian accent?

The Russian accent didn’t help Khabilov; Benson Henderson choked him out in the fourth round for his first finish since 2010 to put the cherry on top of a perfectly strange night.

You want to talk about strange? Earlier in the night, Bryan Caraway fishhooked a man in the Octagon. He also choked him out, but before that, he used an honest-to-God fishhook to set up the choke on Erik Perez.

There is very little chance Caraway did this intentionally; it is more likely that he was going for a chin rip to help set up his submission attempt. But the photos of Caraway’s digits inserted deep in Perez’s gaping mouth made the social media rounds, and by that point, it was too late; he was already convicted in the court of public opinion.

Nevermind that the court of public opinion has been very much against Caraway from the start because he has the temerity to date the beautiful Miesha Tate.

And then there was the low point of the evening: Diego Sanchez somehow winning a split decision over Ross Pearson in a fight where every single human being on earth (except two of the three inept judges sitting cageside) believed Pearson cruised to a comfortable 30-27 win.

If it wasn’t the worst decision in the history of mixed martial arts, it was close. It was in the top five. It was in shouting range. And it was another embarrassment for a sport that struggles mightily to convince fans that the best man almost always wins, even when they allow the fight to go to the judges.

Sanchez did not beat Pearson. He didn’t even come close. There are only three scenarios where a judge could have scored this fight for Sanchez:

1. He knows nothing about mixed martial arts.
2. He was playing Words with Friends instead of watching the fight.
3. He had a monetary investment in the outcome, or he is close family friends with Sanchez.

A few hours have passed since that terrible decision was rendered, and I still can’t figure it out. And I know this won’t be a final call to action for athletic commissions around the world to get their act together and figure out how to cull the best judges from the absolutely rotten trash pile that currently exists; bad decisions and referee actions have existed for years, and they’re still around, so you know nobody important is going to do anything about them.

But they SHOULD do something about them, and that has never been more clearly demonstrated than on this weird, strange night in New Mexico. Because we can joke about Russian Greg Jackson and intentional fishhooks (that clearly were not intentional), but the poor judging epidemic is no laughing matter. Everything else is fun and light hearted, and we have a good time. But the judging situation is a legitimate roadblock on the way to mixed martial arts gaining any sort of real mainstream acceptance, and something must be done about it before it’s too late.
