There are plenty of ways to close out a year of MMA, but given the magnitude of its main and co-main events, few are bound to be more memorable than UFC 168.

Two title fights, each with a unique reason to draw hardcore and casual fans alike.

Did Anderson Silva really lose the first fight as a result of his over-the-top antics? Does he need to revise his approach in the second go? Or does UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman have his number regardless of what he does inside the cage on Saturday night?

And before the main men even step foot inside the Octagon, fans will be treated to the second act in the heated rivalry between UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate. Is Tate destined for another armbar, or is this her time to shine under the Zuffa banner?

But let's go a step further down the UFC 168 rabbit hole.

How about that heavyweight tilt between a pair of consistently thrilling savages? MMA veteran Josh Barnett will look to outclass up and coming contender Travis Browne in a bout all but guaranteed to produce fireworks and mayhem.

Here's a breakdown of what the UFC has in store and where you can watch it:
