After a brief two-week hiatus, the UFC comes storming back this Saturday with one of its most anticipated fights of the year. “UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman” takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The UFC’s Facebook page kicks things off by streaming a pair of preliminary bouts live at 7PM ET/4PM PT. FX will then broadcast the remaining four prelims at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
The pay-per-view begins immediately after at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
Reigning middleweight king Anderson Silva (pictured) defends his crown against Chris Weidman in the show’s featured attraction. It will mark the final time “The Spider” enters the Octagon with the strap wrapped around his waist – that is if you were to ask Weidman.
