The Holiday weekend is still in full force and the UFC has one more night of fireworks planned for the fans with tonight’s UFC 162 from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Our main event is an interesting pairing, as long-time Middleweight champion and all-time great Anderson Silva will face the meteoric Chris Weidman as he looks to start his own reign at the top.

Being as us American folks missed out of The Smashes, I’ll be combining these two cards into one epic fight report for your reading pleasure, so let’s dig into the massive report.
