As game time steadily approaches, it’s hard to believe there’s anything more middleweight king Anderson Silva or Chael Sonnen (Pictured) can say about their heavily-hyped rematch that hasn’t already been spewed – especially after Monday’s explosive conference call. Nonetheless, FUEL TV will premiere “UFC 148 Primetime: Silva vs. Sonnen II” this Saturday at 7PM ET/4PM PT to see if they can further intensify the anticipation.
Knowing fanboys just can’t get enough of MMA’s most heated rivalry, FUEL has released a sneak peek of this weekend’s 30-minute documentary.
After manhandling Silva for nearly five complete rounds at UFC 117, Sonnen was abruptly submitted with only 110 ticks remaining on the clock. Uncle Chael has been a thorn in “The Spider’s” side ever since the August 2010 defeat.
The sequel takes place July 7th inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
