UFC 163: "Aldo vs. Korean Zombie" is just over 24 hours from getting underway this Saturday night (Aug. 3, 2013) at the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
UFC 163 will feature an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight championship contest pitting Jose Aldo vs. Chan Sung Jung in the main event. It will be Aldo's fifth UFC title defense and seventh overall if you count the WEC.
The pay-per-view (PPV) will also feature an important Light Heavyweight affair in the co-main event, as former champion Lyoto Machida wages war opposite Phil Davis. In other main card action, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil winner Cezar Ferreira takes on Thiago Santos and top flyweight contender John Lineker battles Jose Maria Tome.
As with any UFC event, the notable cast and crew descended upon the host location beforehand to strut their stuff as part of the media open workout (in the video above), which this time took place at the Circo Voador in Rio accompanied by a live performance from the band Tihuana.
