UFC 148 Weigh-In Results for Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen 2 Fight Card
On Saturday night Anderson Silva will put his UFC middleweight crown on the line for the 10th time. His opponent will be the same man he faced at UFC 117, the same man who was close to defeating him on that night in August 2010—Chael Sonnen.
As we all know, close is never good enough. So, while Sonnen gets points for being Silva’s toughest test in the UFC, he still sits empty handed while Silva wears the UFC title belt. Will that change on Saturday night in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena?
