UFC 162 takes place on Saturday night with Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman being the main event of an exciting line up. The main fight as well as the preliminaries and built up action can be watched online through UFC.com live stream (details below).
Silva will be defending his UFC Middleweight title once again, and this time Weidman will be the man trying to take the crown away from him.
Weidman has impressed in recent fights and earned his shot at Silva by going undefeated in his five UFC appearances.
However, most analysts believe that Silva will have too much for him, and especially in the experience department Silva comes out way on top, and in tight title fights that can make all the difference in front of an intimidating crowd.
But at the same time Weidman has turned heads, and some believe he has the arsenal to trouble and even take down Silva.
In other fights on Saturday night, former lightweight titleholder Frankie Edgar will be attempting to pick up his first featherweight victory against Charles Oliveira.
Also featured on the main card is an exciting 145-pound bout between Cub Swanson and Dennis Siver.
