UFC Poster 162 Anderson Silva Chris Weidman

Hot off the press (or in this case, Twitter)! The official event poster for “UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman” has just hit the Internet.

There’s really nothing too special about the billboard, but Chris Weidman probably won’t appreciate that it’s made in Anderson Silva’s trademark bumblebee colorway.

Silva puts his middleweight crown on the line July 6 against arguably the biggest threat to his reign in Weidman. 

A co-main event hasn’t been officially confirmed for the lineup, but it appears the scrap will not make it onto the ad anyways.

MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the festivities.

Here is the show’s current lineup:

Preliminary Card:

Norman Parke vs. Kazuki Tokudome

Edson Barboza vs. John Makdessi

Shane Del Rosario vs. Dave Herman

Seth Baczynski vs. Brian Melancon

Chris Leben vs. Andrew Craig

Mike Pierce vs. David Mitchell

Roger Gracie vs. Tim Kennedy

Cub Swanson vs. Dennis Siver

Frankie Edgar vs. Charles Oliveira

Mark Munoz vs. Tim Boetsch
