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:
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
Ricardo Lamas vs. “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung
Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva (UFC middleweight champion)
