After swapping out UFC 148‘s co-featured attraction in favor of the trilogy between Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin, the Ultimate Fighting Championship hasn’t had the opportunity to officially release the new event poster for this Saturday’s extravaganza. No worries, because The People’s Cecil has conjured up a new billboard on the UFC’s behalf, and Chael P. Sonnen has wholeheartedly endorsed it.
The self-proclaimed UFC middleweight champ has the fan-made ad plastered across his Twitter page.
With truthful taglines like “The rematch Anderson Silva has been running from” and ” The true middleweight champion makes his third title defense” written across the picture, why wouldn’t Uncle Chael accredit it?
In the spirit of accuracy, Silva is actually the UFC’s reigning 185-pound king and will be granting Sonnen a rematch this Saturday.
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the highly-anticipated sequel.
