The official weigh in event for UFC 162: "Silva vs. Weidman" is set to take place a week from Friday (July 5, 2013) LIVE from the UFC Fan Expo inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The first fighter is expected to tip the scale at 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. PT local time).
As usual, MMAmania.com will provide a LIVE video feed and up-to-the-second coverage of the UFC 162 weigh-ins, as well as provide a detailed recap of the festivities as soon as they conclude.
"Silva vs. Weidman" will feature a middleweight championship contest in the main event when top-ranked pound-for-pound fighter -- and longtime 185-pound kingpin -- Anderson Silva puts his title on the line against undefeated contender Chris Weidman.
In addition, former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar will look to get into the 145-pound win column at the expense of Brazilian jiu-jitsu wunderkind Charles Oliveira, while Cub Swanson vs. Dennis Siver will collide in a battle that could determine the next challenger for the featherweight title.
