He was all-smiles afterward and seems set on returning to the win column soon. That could happen at UFC Brasilia next which takes place on March 18.

Walker hinted at competing in his homeland of Brazil in a recent Instagram post.

“Brasília, are you ready for the show? #iamback,” he wrote.

The only question is who his opponent could be.

Walker recently called out former middleweight champion Chris Weidman. However, the latter remains unsure which division he will compete in next following an unsuccessful light heavyweight debut against Dominick Reyes in October.

Despite their respectful back-and-forth on social media, Walker recently revealed he would love to face Weidman in February and March and “break” his face to avenge Anderson Silva’s losses to him.

As aforementioned, UFC Brasilia takes place March 18 and what better way to try and avenge Silva’s losses to Weidman by beating him in Brazil?
