Leading up to UFC 168: "Weidman vs. Silva 2," Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) revealed a list of its most memorable rematches to ever take place inside the Octagon, prepping us for the championship main- and co-main events that will take place on Dec. 28, 2013, at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) year-end event could not come any sooner, as anticipation is growing for two headlining championship rematches.

UFC 162 will forever go down as the night Anderson Silva was dethroned, and the current champion, Chris Weidman, is out to prove it was no fluke. Weidman will tangle with "The Spider" in the main event, marking the second meeting between both Middleweight superstars in less than six months.

The UFC Women's Bantamweight belt will also be on the line when "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey looks to keep her perfect record in tact against her nemesis, Miesha Tate, in the co-main event.

Rousey submitted Tate with her notorious first-round armbar at Strikeforce: "Rousey vs. Tate" back in March 2012. The two competitors squared off as coaches in last season's The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18, with the Tate-led squad defeating Rousey's team thanks to big wins from Julianna Pena and Chris Holdsworth at the Finale event.

To hype the year-end pay-per-view (PPV) event, UFC.com released a list of its most memorable rematches in history (in no particular order). It remains to be seen seen if both of the aforementioned rematches top the classic rivalries we have seen in the past; however, let's take a look at UFC.com's Top 10 list of classic duels between familiar foes:

Chuck Liddell vs. Randy Couture 2 -- UFC 52
Matt Hughes vs. B.J. Penn 2 -- UFC 63
Matt Hughes vs. Frank Trigg 2 -- UFC 52
Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir 2 -- UFC 100
Spencer Fisher vs. Sam Stout 2 -- UFC Fight Night 10
Georges St. Pierre vs. Matt Hughes 2 -- UFC 65
Georges St. Pierre vs. B.J. Penn 2 -- UFC 94
Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard 2 -- UFC 125
Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber 2 -- UFC 132
Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen 2 -- UFC 148

Right off the bat, we can say that is a decent list; however, we are missing a few names such as Tito Ortiz, Ken Shamrock and others.

Is there any other rematch that comes to mind and desperately needs to be included on this list? Tell us all about it in the comments section below.
