The Octagon’s most decorated champion will take center stage again in just 11 days, so it’s only fitting the UFC release an extended video preview featuring middleweight king Anderson Silva (pictured) and challenger Chris Weidman ahead of their UFC 162 shootout.
The 185-pounders square off July 6 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
UFC president Dana White, Silva and Weidman will be hosting a conference call later today, so make sure to check back to 5thRound.com to read what the trio had to say.
A critical featherweight scrap between Frankie Edgar and Charles Oliveira serves as UFC 162’s co-main event.
