Leading up to their heated rematch at UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen 2, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and challenger Chael Sonnen are the latest subjects featured in the behind-the-scenes special UFC Primetime.
As their rivalry has grown over the years, initially with a verbal onslaught from Sonnen, it boiled over recently with Silva’s venomous retort on the UFC 148 media conference call promoting the fight.
The show will premier Saturday, June 30, at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Fuel TV, but will be made available immediately thereafter on UFC.com, while also rebroadcasting on Fuel TV and FX in the days leading up to the fight.
