UFC Matchmaker Joe Silva Previews UFC Fight Night 82: Hendricks Vs Thompson

Joe Silva and Dana White

Joe Silva is one of the most important people behind the scenes at the UFC, being the promotion’s long-time matchmaker, and the video below he makes a rare appearance in front of the camera breaking down this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 82 main event between Johny Hendricks and Stephen Thompson.

Over the years I've watched the UFC develop into the powerhouse it is today, organizations like PRIDE, Strikeforce and WEC rise and fall, and Bellator emerge as a new force on the MMA landscape. Throughout it all I've remained captivated by the sport and I'm excited to cover what comes next here on MMA Insight.
