The preview show detailing one of the UFC’s most highly anticipated rematches of all time, Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen 2, is set to air on Fuel TV on Tuesday, July 3.
Countdown to UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen 2 will air at 9 p.m. ET.
UFC 148 is set to take place the following Saturday, July 7, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event was originally expected to host an interim bantamweight title fight between Urijah Faber and Renan Barao, but that bout was pushed up to main event UFC 149 when that event’s original headliner was scrapped due to injury.
Now, UFC 148 will feature as a co-main event the rubber match between Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin, which is also to serve as Ortiz’s retirement fight, win or lose.
