Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman full fight video preview for UFC 162

The pound-for-pound king makes his return to the Octagon later on this evening (Sat., July 6, 2013) in Las Vegas, Nevada, as Anderson Silva defends his middleweight title against the undefeated Chris Weidman in the main event of UFC 162. Here's a video preview.

Anderson Silva is arguably the greatest mixed martial artist in the history of the sport. Considering organized cage fighting in its current form has only really been around for a couple decades or so that's not exactly the highest honor in combat sports.

That said, he's undoubtedly as special as they come.

Chris Weidman, meanwhile, while undefeated, has just nine professional bouts under his belt. That's total. For perspective, Silva has fought 16 times under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner alone. Yet, if we're to believe the pundits and both fighter's contemporaries, the challenger has the best chance of any before him of dethroning the champion when the two meet at tonight's (Sat., July 6, 2013) UFC 162: "Silva vs. Weidman" event at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

We'll see.
