The Ultimate Show is gearing up for another trip to Brazil as we preview UFC 153. Like many other fight cards before this one, UFC 153 was hit by the injury bug. The card was originally slated to have Frankie Edgar making his featherweight debut against the dominating champ Jose Aldo. But Aldo had to pull out due to a foot injury, leaving the card with no headliner.

Now Anderson Silva is set to move up in weight to 205 and take on “American Psycho” Stephan Bonnar. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, Bonnar is in for the fight of his life.

With an exciting undercard, Jon Fitch is set to square off against Brazilian phenom Erick Silva on Saturday. The Ultimate Show sat Erick Silva down to get his thoughts on American movie stars, his career before UFC and his newfound popularity. AKA fighter Jon Fitch also stopped by to give us his thoughts on his young opponent and what it’s going to be like fighting in Silva’s home country of Brazil.

As always, Big Nasty stops by to gives us all his favorite UFC tweets from the past week.
