If Chael Sonnen does indeed get that rematch against Anderson Silva on Super Bowl weekend, you'll get the chance to hit the theater and check out all the action in 3D.

Because who wouldn't want "The Spider's" fist flying straight at their face?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) today announced it has partnered with theatrical distribution company Cinedigm Digital Cinema to bring combat sports first ever live 3D broadcast of a pay-per-view event. The deal calls for four shows annually, which would start with the Feb. 4, 2012 fight card from Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC President Dana White comments (via Market Watch):

"By partnering with Cinedigm, we're taking the UFC viewing experience to a whole new level. For the first time ever, fight fans can watch a UFC Pay-Per-View card in 3D at theaters across the country. We want UFC fans to have the best viewing experience possible and now they get a chance to experience major UFC Pay-Per-Views in 3D."

Perhaps Georges St. Pierre's knee injury, which will reportedly keep him out until late January to early February, was rather well timed, after all. Who wouldn't mind watching "Rush" rip off a few relentless takedowns on the big screen in 3D?
