There are exactly 11 days remaining until the curtain is drawn on the most anticipated rematch in mixed martial arts history. Since there will be no three-part “Primetime” series to promote UFC 168, the organization has released an extended video preview to help fill in the gap.

Trust me, it’s much better than the beyond annoying “You and me. Me and you” promo they have been constantly airing the past few weekends on Fox Sports 1.

Former middleweight king Anderson Silva seeks to reclaim his crown against Chris Weidman (pictured) December 28 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Weidman shocked the world by putting Silva to sleep in their July encounter.

That won’t be the only rematch going down New Year’s Eve weekend. UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey looks to post her second victory over bitter rival Miesha Tate in the card’s co-featured attraction.
