Want to get some goosebumps for this month’s “UFC 168: Weidman vs. Silva II” pay-per-view event? Check out the extended video preview for the Dec. 28 event.

The 10-minute feature focuses heavily on the headlining bout and rematch between middleweight champion Chris Weidman (10-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) and Anderson Silva (33-5 MMA, 16-1 UFC). More precisely, UFC insiders such as Kenny Florian and Joe Rogan discuss whether Weidman’s initial win was simply a fluke, or whether he simply had the long-reigning champ’s number back in July at UFC 162.

Also featured is the co-headlining bout – and the card’s other rematch – between women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Miesha Tate (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC).

UFC 168 takes place at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena.
