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.
In a curious decision, the UFC has decided to go with an all-Strikeforce middleweight bout pitting Roger Gracie against Tim Kennedy on the main card instead of Mark Munoz vs. Tim Boetsch, while will headline the prelims.
