In this extended "UFC Unrestricted" sneak preview, see the events leading up to the Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen confrontation at the UFC 148 weigh-ins this past July in Las Vegas, Nevada as the Fuel TV presents the all-access special 'UFC Unrestricted.'
In this extended seven-minute sneak preview of the upcoming special "UFC Unrestricted," which will premiere this Saturday (Nov. 10, 2012) following UFC on FUEL TV 6: "Franklin vs. Le," catch the events leading up to the infamous chin-check Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Anderson Silva delivered to his arch-nemesis, Chael Sonnen, at the UFC 148 weigh-ins prior to their clash at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
In the clip, you can clearly see the tension building up between the two as they come face-to-face after making their respective weights. Obviously, ‘The Spider" had just about had enough of Sonnen's never-ending trash talk and seeing him eye-to-eye was too much for the Brazilian to handle as he proceeds to drive his shoulder into the chin of the rabble-rousing Republican.
Also, catch a small glimpse of the reactions of UFC President Dana White, owner Lorenzo Fertitta, light heavyweight Jon Jones, the production team and even Chael himself who acknowledges Silva's actions as a ‘cheap shot.'
Catch the all access special in its entirety only on Fuel TV at 1pm ET/10am PT on Nov. 10, 2012.
