UFC 162 'Silva vs Weidman' extended video preview

UFC 162: "Silva vs. Weidman" is little more than one week away, which means that it's time to take an extended look at the upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) event that features the long-awaited mixed martial arts (MMA) match between "Undisputed," Anderson Silva, and "Undefeated," Chris Weidman.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will stage its annual Fourth of July weekend mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., July 6, 2013.

UFC 162 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 No.-1 ranked division 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 in the co-featured bout of the pay-per-view (PPV) broadcast.

The promotion has already begun to thump its promotional drum, holding press events, including the UFC 162 pre-fight conference call that took place earlier this afternoon (more details here).
