Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has brought back the "Primetime" series, which follows Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva as he prepares to settle the score once more against number one contender, Chael Sonnen, in the main event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., July 7, 2012.
Not surprisingly, the first episode takes a close look at the nail biting first showdown between the two that saw "The Spider" use his long limbs to pull off a last minute triangle submission to keep his title. But we also get a refreshing look at both men and how much this match-up actually affects them.
The money quote from Sonnen, who admits how much this fight means to him:
"I don't need anything. But I need that championship belt. I need it. I have to have it. This will all be for nothing, it will all be a failure, if I don't win that belt on the seventh of July."
And Silva, who is absolutely itching to put a beating on Sonnen and leave this all behind him:
"July 7, we'll resolve this. July 7. All this will be done on the 7th, Chael Sonnen, and you can prove everything you're saying. You're trying the same as everyone else, and no one's been successful for years. Even though you respect nobody's country, and you're a crazy person, you'll have another chance at me. Enjoy your chance. I have to go eat, okay? I need to train so I can beat you down."
