In July (UFC 162) Chris Weidman dethroned the seemingly untouchable Brazilian Anderson Silva in a Middleweight (185 lbs) championship bout.
On Saturday 12/28/2013 there will be a highly anticipated re-match between the 38 yr old Silva and the 29 yr old Weidman.
There will also be two other significant fights on the card for Saturday’s UFC 168:
Rounda Rousey vs Miesha Tate
Rousey previously defeated Tate via a first round arm-bar (same way she has won each of her 7 professional fights). Here is the video of the first matchup between the two 135 lb female fighters.
Tate is 27 yrs old & from Tacoma, Washington while Rousey is 26 yrs old & from Riverside County, California.
Josh Barnett vs Travis Browne
Barnett won the UFC Heavyweight Championship via a TKO over the legendary Randy Couture on 3/22/2002 at UFC 36. Barnett was later stripped of the title after testing positive for banned substances. Barnett has since worked his way back into the good graces of Dana White & is looking to re-establish himself near the top of the Heavyweight UFC ranks.
Barnett is 36 years old & from Seattle, Washington while Browne is 31 years old & from Oahu, Hawaii.
