On Saturday, Dec. 28, the UFC will host UFC 168: Weidman vs. Silva II from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The night’s main event features one of the biggest rematches in the sport’s history, as middleweight champion Chris Weidman looks to prove that his knockout of Anderson Silva at UFC 162 in July was no fluke. The undefeated Weidman stunned the Brazilian and the MMA world with the second-round finish of “The Spider.”

In the co-main event, women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey faces a familiar foe in her fellow Ultimate Fighter 18 coach, Miesha Tate. The pair previously clashed under the Strikeforce banner, with Rousey forcing Tate to submit to her trademark armbar.

Rounding out the main card, heavyweights Josh Barnett and Travis Browne battle for position in the title picture, hard-nosed lightweight Jim Miller takes on Brazilian Fabricio Camoes, and TUF winner Diego Brandao clashes with Dustin Poirier in a featherweight affair.

The 11-fight event kicks off at 7 p.m. ET with two fights streaming live on the promotion’s Facebook and YouTube pages. Four additional bouts will follow on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the pay-per-view main card beginning at 10 p.m. ET.

Below is a video interview (shot by The MMA Corner’s Jeff Vulgamore) with welterweight Bobby Voelker, who faces William Macario on the night’s undercard.
