Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight champion Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva are set to do battle once again this weekend in the main event of UFC 168 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Grand Garden Arena. They will close out what is being billed as one of the biggest UFC cards of all time.
Perhaps the card is important because the first time they met, Weidman shocked the world by knocking Silva out in the second round. With a singular punch, Weidman will forever be remembered as the man who defeated the champion. A feat that Vitor Belfort and countless others failed to accomplish when they faced "the Spider."
Weidman entered the bout as a +235 underdog and showed that sometimes the unbelievable can happen in mixed martial arts (MMA).
The folks at Vice's Fightland were able to get both Silva and Weidman to sit down and rewatch their first encounter. In a rarity in sports, both men are videotaped reliving a moment that will forever be remembered by fans of the sport.
Take a look as you prepare for UFC 168 tomorrow night (Dec. 28, 2013) on pay-per-view (PPV).
