UFC 168 is just days away, and the excitement building around the event is coming to it’s apex. In the main event of the evening, Middleweight champion, Chris Weidman, will look to defend his title against the man he took it from in July, Anderson Silva. In the co-main event, bitter rivals Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate, will battle for the Women’s Bantamweight championship of the world.
