Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will tie a ribbon around its latest successful fight season TONIGHT (Sat., Dec. 28, 2013) when Middleweight champion, Chris Weidman, looks to make it two straight against perhaps the greatest mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter of all time, Anderson Silva, in a five-round pay-per-view (PPV) main event.
Not to be outdone, UFC 168: "Weidman vs. Silva 2," which will emanate from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, will feature another championship rematch between women's Bantamweight title holder, Ronda Rousey, putting her 135-pound belt on the line against Miesha Tate.
That's just the cherry and icing on a very delicious MMA sundae.
Once the hour-long Facebook/YouTube stream ends, the rest of the "Prelims" under card will begin to air live on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m., featuring fights between Uriah Hall vs. Chris Leben and Michael Johnson vs. Gleison Tibau, among others.
