Brisbane Roar is set for a shock full-time return to Ballymore with the A-League club poised to move their headquarters back to the rugby union-controlled stadium.Hours after confirming they will stage their first-ever home FFA Cup tie at Ballymore, AAP has learned the Roar will also shift their administrative and training base back to the Herston home of the Queensland Rugby Union in time for the new season.It comes less than 12 months after the QRU attempted to wind up the Roar due to months of unpaid rent at the venue, forcing coach John Aloisi into a mad scramble to find a training facility on his first day in the job.However, acting CEO and incoming owner Daniel Cobb is believed to have recently smoothed over relations with the QRU, to the point where Brisbane are now ready to move back in.The Roar will host Perth Glory in their FFA Cup round of 32 clash at Ballymore and are hopeful of a big crowd after the match was set down for August 10, Brisbanes annual Ekka public holiday.The club intends to hold a family day and use the occasion to launch their membership program.Ballymore has long been favoured as a football venue by Roar supporters because of its smaller, more intimate nature in comparison to the cavernous Suncorp Stadium, but only pre-season matches have been held there during the A-League era.The deal is a remarkable turnaround given the extent of the animosity between the two organisations.It peaked when now-departed QRU chief Jim Carmichael slammed the Bakrie Group for their conduct as Roar owners, and suggested Football Federation Australia should change their A-League ownership model.Carmichael is now gone, while Cobb is the head of a consortium that has agreed to purchase the Roar from the Bakries in a deal subject to approval and due diligence from FFA.The QRU are battling their own financial issues, having posted a loss of $1.483 million for 2015, and are understood to be open to leasing Ballymore out to more sporting bodies.However, its believed plans for the Roar to eventually move into a proposed new training and administrative facility in Logan - as part of an agreement brokered by former Roar CEO David Pourre - have not changed.

The Brazilian legend is considered among the elite handful of cage competitors after a majestic run as UFC middleweight champion which resulted in some of the sports most iconic knockouts - made possible after he perfected his craft in Dave ODonnells Cage Rage.Silva (33-6-1) will next fight Englands premier UFC representative Michael Bisping (27-7) in London, returning to the city where his flamboyant but vicious style was developed. We brought Anderson over to lose to Lee Murray but, when he didnt, we realised we had a star in the making. Promoter Dave ODonnell ODonnell signed the up-and-coming Silva to his domestic promotion in 2004 as cannon fodder for English fighters but soon accepted the brilliant Brazilian import would outgrow them.We brought Anderson over to lose [a Cage Rage title fight] to Lee Murray but, when he didnt, we realised we had a star in the making, ODonnell exclusively told Sky Sports. He had knockout after knockout in London, then the UFC rightly snapped him up. Silva was beginning to demonstrate the ferocity that made him the UFCs best ever middleweight Anderson Silva: The stats Age: 40 Birthplace: Curitiba, Brazil Height/Reach: 62 / 77 Nickname: The Spider We signed Anderson the same way we brought all the biggest names over - we waited for the right moment, when theyd had a loss and needed rebuilding. With Murray being a rising star over here, it was something Anderson could get his teeth into.Twelve years ago, the 29-year-old prospect Silva boasted a 13-2 record earned in his homeland and Japan. He had been beaten just a year prior to touching down for the first of four fights at Wembleys Conference Centre that have since become the stuff of legend.But Silva annihilated Cage Rage favourite Murray to shock the home crowd, crippling his legs en route to a unanimous decision. It quickly dawned on promoter ODonnell that the quiet boy from the streets of Curitiba had something. Silva won all four fights in England but upcoming opponent Michael Bisping is also undefeated in his home country When he first came over to fight Murray he was booed, but by the end of the fight he was respected and nobody could wait for him to come back, said ODonnell. Lee wanted to fight the worlds best and we thought Anderson would be a test.A lot of Brazilians back in those days would just go to the ground but Anderson was different, always coming up with new tricks, he was the Bruce Lee of MMA.Yet his development wasnt yet completed - after torching the best that London had to offer, Silva surprisingly lost a fight in Japan by submission. Back to the drawing board. I brought [Silva] to a gym to do a seminar a few days before he knocked out Tony Fryklund with a reverse elbow.dddddddddddd He practiced that move in the seminar and we all thought whats he doing? Promoter Dave ODonnell Sensing his opportunity, ODonnell tempted Silva back to The Big Smoke, having lined up stern American opposition. Jorge Rivera and Curtis Stout were promptly knocked out but, when Silva travelled to Hawaii for his next fight, he lost via disqualification. His silky skills were obvious but he just needed one spark to truly ignite his rise, and it would come with a never-repeated stoppage win on his next return to London.I brought him to a gym to do a seminar a few days before he knocked out Tony Fryklund with a reverse elbow, ODonnell recalled. He practiced that move in the seminar and we all thought whats he doing? That was on the Thursday, he went and did it on Saturday. He never played safe.The technique in question had never been seen, and since 2006 hasnt been repeated in top-level MMA. Silva, from a southpaw stance, connected with an elbow strike thrown like a boxers lead-hand uppercut. His opponent crashed downwards, the crowd were eerily silent as they digested what had happened, and one of the UFCs future icons was born. Silva went on to bamboozle Forrest Griffin in the UFC Anderson Silva: The records 33-6-1 (20 KOs, 6 submissions) Most UFC title defenses (10) Most finishes in the UFC (14) Longest win streak in UFC history (16) Longest UFC title reign (2457 days) Highest significant strike accuracy in UFC (67.8%) He was quickly poached by the riches of the Las Vegas-based organisation, as ODonnell expected. Such a magnificent knockout signalled a step forwards in the growth of MMA that, a decade ago, was dominated by rough-and-tumble brawlers. Two months later, Silva needed 49 seconds to win his Vegas debut.He twice stopped middleweight champion Rich Franklin and built the best winning streak in UFC history spanning 16 fights, 10 of which were for the world title. His limited grasp of English, increasingly unique offence and respectful demeanour was a throwback to The Karate Kid movie. Silva last fought in January 2015 but his win over Nick Diaz was overturned into a no contest From the beginning he was humble, ODonnell noted. He was an animal in the cage but a nice bloke outside it. Some guys just have an aura - when he walked into a room you said theres something special about him.Two defeats to Chris Weidman, including a gruesome broken leg, plus a failed drugs test have dampened the past three years but Silva is aiming for revitalisation in his spiritual home of London once again.
