UFC 162 extended preview: Is Chris Weidman the one to dethrone Anderson Silva?


Check out an extended preview of next week’s UFC 162 pay-per-view headliner between middleweight champion Anderson Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) and challenger Chris Weidman (9-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC).

The July 6 event takes place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and many folks are doing a hard sell on why this may be Weidman’s fight to win.

“Chris Weidman is everything that you look for to challenge Anderson Silva,” UFC commentator and host Joe Rogan said. “He has that championship mind and heart. He has an intensity about him, and it’s a reason so many fans and MMA experts are excited about this fight.”

In addition to Rogan, fighters such as George St-Pierre, Daniel Cormier, Chael Sonnen and Kenny Florian all make arguments as to why Weidman could pull off the upset against the greatest fighter in UFC history.

Check out the 10-minute preview above.
