The UFC 148 weigh-ins were one of, if not the most intense weigh-ins the UFC has ever had. Everyone knew the Anderson Silva / Chael Sonnen stare down was going to be insane but who knew that so many other stare downs would bring an intensity level so think you needed to cut it with a chain saw.

The combo weekend of the UFC Fan Expo and UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen 2 is finally here. It’s a weekend that many MMA fans have had circled on their calendars for months and this Friday and Saturday in Las Vegas will be one BIG Mixed Martial Arts party.
After the confusing main event at UFC on FX 4 and the nameless UFC 147 card, it’s nice to see a quality PPV worth laying your money down on with UFC 148. But there’s also money to be made in the betting world if you know who to back, who to fade, and how to hedge. Allow me to give you a bit of insight with my comparison betting odds, any props I think will hit, as well as my general confidence in the predictability of the fights.
In an already stacked Welterweight division, the talent pool will soon have another top contender eyeing a run at the title. After a 9-4 run in the Middleweight division, with one of those loses coming in a title bout, BJJ Black Belt Demian Maia (15-4) will be trying his luck at Welterweight. Welcoming Maia to the division will be the dangerous Dong-Hyun “Stun Gun” Kim (15-1-1, 1NC) at next weekends UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II.
The first official UFC on FOX card has finally arrived and despite a late change to the main card the UFC has put together a very competitive and meaningful card on FOX. The night’s main card will feature three fights on Fox following the seven bout preliminary card that will air on Fuel TX (only six fights will air live on Fuel TV).
By the end of the UFC’s second venture on FOX, two things will most certainly be answered; Who will be next in line for title shot against both Anderson Silva and Jon Jones. In the night’s Main and Co-Main Event, three of the involved fighters will be buying for their chance to fight for Championship gold later on this year with another patiently waiting on the sidelines.
The first official UFC on FOX card has finally arrived and despite a late change to the main card the UFC has put together a very competitive and meaningful card on FOX. The night’s main card will feature three fights on Fox following the eight bout preliminary card that will air on Fuel TX. Originally all three main card bouts held title shot implications for the winner, but an injury to Mark Munoz forced him out against Chael Sonnen and moved Michael Bisping up the card. Chris Weidman was then tabbed to replace Bisping, who was scheduled to face Demian Maia to open the main card.
While it’s never great to see a fighter get injured prior to a fight, sometimes, the shuffling that ensues can only lead to someone getting the opportunity of a lifetime, which is what is happening to UFC Middleweight, Chris Weidman.
