We’re still 15 days out from witnessing the highly anticipated grudge match between Chael Sonnen and middleweight king Anderson Silva. To help wet your UFC 117 appetite, the world’s biggest MMA promotion has just released the extended trailer for the August 7th event.
The foes will throw down in OakTown to determine who the planet’s top 185-pounder is. When challenged, the Brazilian has displayed a vicious arsenal that’s sent most into unconsciousness. Unfortunately, MMA’s deadliest assassin has been M.I.A. in his last three title defenses.
Opening for them will be a pivotal welterweight scrap between Thaigo Alves and Jon Fitch, with the winner likely standing behind Josh Koscheck on the division’s VIP list. Kos is expected to challenge Georges St-Pierre for his belt following their stint as opposing coaches on the 12th season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
