On Saturday, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Anderson “The Spider” Silva is set to defend his Middleweight title against “Supernatural” Chris Weidman. Many feel that the up-and-coming Weidman (9-0-0) has a chance against the veteran Silva. Silva, for his part, is looking to continue his streak of title defenses which now stands at 10. His last title defense was against Chael Sonnen, which he won in a second-round TKO.
Other fights on the card pit fan favorite Frankie Edgar against Charles Oliviera, Tim Kennedy against Roger Gracie and Mark Munoz against Tim Boetsch.
