Countdown to UFC 148: Main Card Bouts (Full Video)Posted on July 4, 2012, 05:59 AM by Anton Gurevich
We are just three days away from one of the biggest cards in UFC history, headined by the long-anticipated rematch between Anderson "The Spider" Silva and Chael Sonnen. UFC 148 takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, co-headlined by Tito Ortiz's retirement bout in a trilogy scrap with Forrest Griffin.
Also on the card, former UFC Middleweight title challenger Demian Maia faces Dong-Hyun Kim in his Welterweight debut, while another former Middleweight title challenger, Patrick "The Predator" Cote, returns to the Octagon against Cung Le.
UFC 148 features two former champions (Ortiz and Griffin), and four former title challengers (Chael Sonnen, Patrick Cote, Demian Maia, Chad Mendes). Unlike any other UFC cards, UFC 148 has a six-fight main card format, with Ivan Menjivar fighting Mike Easton in night's opener.
