UFC 168 see's Anderson 'The Spider' Silva look to regain his crown as he takes on undefeated champion Chris Weidman. Silva's unbeaten streak was snapped when Weidman took advantage of a clowning, dancing champion and knocked him out cold in their first bout at UFC 162 in July 6, 2013.
The consensus across social media and many news websites is that a focused Silva will reclaim his belt from Weidman. However, it would be unwise to count out Weidman, a man who is both undefeated and technically brilliant. A decorated wrestler with great submission skills, he has the tools to stay champion for years to come.
Whichever way the bout goes, one thing is for sure, this is one of the most anticipated rematches in UFC history.
The co main-event is a female grudge match that fans of The Ultimate Fighter 18 are keen to witness. Ronda Rousey will take on Meisha Tate in a rematch for Rousey's championship belt. The two have met in the past with devastating results for Tate's arm. However, following a popular season of TUF, Tate has gained popularity against Rousey, who many have accused of bullying and otherwise brash tactics. Again, whatever the result, when these girls meet on Saturday the 28th of December, anticipation is rife.
