New, comments

Welcome back, Kata.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) photographer extraordinaire, Josh Hedges, was on the scene at the XS nightclub from the Encore earlier today (July 5, 2012) to shoot several of the notable fighters who will compete on the UFC 148: "Silva vs Sonnen 2" main card for the event's open media workouts.

Naturally, UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva was front and center to strut his stuff and show off some of his trademarked moves, which he plans on busting out for his 185-pound title defense against Chael Sonnen this Saturday night (July 7) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

All under the watchful eye of master Steven Seagal.
