UFC announces dates and locations for seven city Silva vs Weidman II press tour

USA TODAY Sports

The UFC has provided details for their massive press tour for UFC 168 and the rematch between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman.

The UFC had previously announced that they would be doing a massive press tour for the rematch between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman at UFC 168. The method of PR seemed to take a page out of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez tour that saw those fighters cross the country and go to Mexico to promote their bout.

It was a smart tactic for the UFC and something that is likely to help build up a very big fight.

Today, the UFC sent out the schedule with cities, times, dates and other details:
