On Friday, July 6, the UFC will hold the weigh-ins for UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II from the Mandalay Events Center in Las Vegas. The July 7 event takes place from the nearby MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The card will feature UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva putting his belt on the line a second time against current No. 1 contender Chael Sonnen. Silva famously submitted Sonnen in final minutes of their UFC 117 bout, in which Sonnen dominated the first four rounds.

In addition to the main event, the card also features a rubber match between former light heavyweight champions Forrest Griffin and Tito Ortiz. Ortiz is expected to retire following the bout. He will be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame as part of the week’s activities.

Saturday’s main card will air live on pay-per-view starting at 10 p.m. ET. The preliminary card will be split between an 8 p.m. ET broadcast on FX and a Facebook stream that begins at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The fighters will hit the scales to weigh-in at 7 p.m. ET today. A full stream of the action, as well as the full results, will appear below.
