UFC 148: Everything You Need to Know About Silva vs Sonnen 2

Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen II.

Undeniably the biggest fight of the summer and maybe even the year.

First set to be fought in a soccer stadium in Brazil, now to be fought at MGM Grand, this grudge will come to a screeching halt.

We all know what happened the first time around. Chael took the fight to Anderson like no one ever had before. Dominating him not only on the ground but also getting the best of him during standing exchanges. The incredible performance by Sonnen was quickly soiled by his inability to defend the triangle choke. Eight seconds is what separated crowning a new Champion from witnessing MMA's version of The Immaculate Reception.

What makes this rematch so intriguing is that both men have to make adjustments. Silva definitely doesn't want to be carrying Chael's body weight for 20 minutes, and Chael doesn't want to get caught up in Silva's tricky triangle.  

So what is set to change for the next bout? Who's made the proper adjustments and necessary changes needed in order to secure a victory? Well here's everything that you need to know about the main event of what's sure to be one of the most successful UFC PPV events of the year.
