On Saturday, at UFC 168, Anderson Silva will attempt to reclaim his middleweight crown from Chris Weidman.
In July, Weidman shocked Silva with a left hook that ended the Brazilian's record UFC championship reign. Because he was so dominant for so long, Silva has been afforded an immediate rematch and will try to avenge his first UFC loss.
Additionally, Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate will meet in a rematch with a title on the line over the weekend.
The female bantamweights first met under the Strikeforce banner, with Rousey stopping Tate via her signature armbar. In order to take back her spot atop the women's 135-pound class, Tate will have to become the first fighter to avoid being submit ted by Rousey in the first round.
On Thursday, several fighters will join UFC president Dana White or another UFC official for a UFC 168 pre-fight press conference. Once the media event starts at around 4 p.m. EST, it can be viewed live on the above video player.
