UFC 108 is set to take place this Saturday (Jan. 2) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In preparation for this weekend's MMA extravaganza, the UFC will hold a pre-fight press conference featuring the major players from the event including Rashad Evans, Thiago Silva, Paul Daley, Dustin Hazelett and of course, UFC President Dana White.
The press conference will air LIVE right here on MMAmania.com at 4 p.m. ET.
"Evans vs. Silva" has been marred by injuries for months, forcing the likes of champions Anderson Silva and Brock Lesnar, as well as big names such as Vitor Belfort, Shane Carwin, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Cain Velasquez, Rory Markham, Tyson Griffin, Sean Sherk, Carlos Condit and Gabriel Gonzaga, off the card.
Now UFC 108 will feature a reworked main event between former smooth-moving light heavyweight champion "Sugar" Rashad Evans and the hard-hitting Thiago Silva. British brawler Paul Daley is slated to battle Brazilian jiu-jitsu phenom Dustin Hazelett in the co-featured fight of the night.
Check out the live stream of the UFC 108 pre-fight press conference after the jump.
