UFC 148 : Sonnen vs Silva Extended Preview

UFC 148 has been in constant upheaval since it was announced, and the last couple of weeks have been no different. The interim bantamweight title fight between Renan Barao and Urijah Faber was moved to UFC 149, and Rich Franklin has been replaced by former title challenger Patrick Cote. They will go with a six-fight main card for the July 7th event in Las Vegas.

Of course, the main event is still the long-awaited rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen for the UFC middleweight title. There will also be a fan expo, and tickets are already on sale for that. Here's how the card looks right now (prelims after the jump):
