UFC 175: Weidman vs. Machida fight card shaping up

USA TODAY Sports

A look at the early card for UFC 175, which takes place on July 5th in Las Vegas.

UFC 175 goes down on July 5th in Las Vegas, and is shaping up to be one of the deepest cards of the year. This is no surprise as the Independence Day weekend card is always a big one, but two title fights on top should get some more attention than usual from fans.

The headliner will see UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman defend his title against former light heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida. Second billing will go to Women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who will defend her belt against Alexis Davis.

Also set for the card (as of right now at least) is the grudge match between Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen. The TUF Brazil 3 coaches have had their bout moved around a few different times so far so it's not set in stone here, but we'll see.

Here's a look at the current (early) card:

Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida [MW title]
Ronda Rousey vs. Alexis Davis [Women's BW title]
Wanderlei Silva vs. Chael Sonnen
Uriah Hall vs. Thiago Santos
Chris Camozzi vs. Bruno Santos
