LAS VEGAS — Fight week is here again, which means another week spent in the sweltering Las Vegas sun. Not to worry, though—the ludicrously high temperatures outside won't keep the Bleacher Report team from bringing you all of the latest and greatest surrounding the UFC Fan Expo and the world of Silva vs. Weidman.
But before we start focusing on all the hoopla surrounding fight week, it's time to take a look at the reason we're all here in the first place: Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman and the rest of the UFC 162 main card fights.
Lots of fighters, media and fans are on the Weidman hype train. I've been there, too. But recently, I've come to believe that I might have been wrong in my initial assessment of his title challenge against Silva.
I won't spoil the fun here and give you my pick before making you read my analysis, so let's move on to the first slide and decide whether or not we believe Silva has a chance of being dethroned and whether or not any good gambling advantages are to be found on UFC 162.
