UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman fight card bout order set

US PRESSWIRE

The bout order is set for UFC 162, which goes down on July 6th in Vegas.

The UFC's annual Independence Day card will go down on July 6th in Las Vegas and like last year, the UFC middleweight title will be up for grabs in the main event. Champion Anderson Silva will defend his belt against top contender and undefeated Chris Weidman. Three of the main card fights are in the featherweight division, including the co-main event where former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar meets Charles Oliveira. Chan Sung Jung vs. Ricardo Lamas and Dennis Siver vs. Cub Swanson are also on the PPV broadcast.
