Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its weigh-in extravaganza earlier today (July 5, 2013) from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, in advance of tomorrow night's UFC 162: "Silva vs. Weidman" mixed martial arts (MMA) event that will air live on pay-per-view.
"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.
