We are just over a week away from arguably the biggest UFC event in the promotion’s history. UFC 168 will be headlined by the much anticipated rematch between former long time Middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, and the man who dethroned him via knockout, Chris Weidman.
The UFC has been ramping up the promotion of the event, including multiple previews, replays, and analysis from the fighters themselves. In the video above, UFC fighters Cain Velasquez, Daniel Cormier, Junior Dos Santos, Liz Carmouche, Gilbert Melendez, Tim Kennedy, John Dodson, and many more give their thoughts on the rematch.
The fighters seem to be split down the middle regarding their picks for the fight. Some believe it is Weidman’s time, while others say Anderson will come into the fight with a renewed focus and vigor. Regardless, all of our questions will be answered on December 28th.
