UFC 175 is just a day away and carries with it two of the most anticipated title fights of the year. Women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (9-0) will defend her title against Canadian contender, Alexis Davis (16-5). That fight will serve as the co-main event for UFC 175.
The headliner of the card will be Chris Weidman’s first defense of his title against someone other than Anderson Silva. Weidman (11-0) spent his last two fights shocking the MMA world with a win over Silva to claim the belt, then solidifying his spot atop the division with a dominant first round which led to a second round in which Silva was injured, thus forcing a retention for Weidman’s title. His opponent is former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida. ‘The Dragon’ has gone 2-0 since his drop to middleweight with a knockout win over Mark Munoz in his divisional debut, then defeated Gegard Mousasi back in February to earn his title shot.
UFC 175 takes place Saturday, July 5th from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
