Final bout order for UFC 168: Weidman vs. Silva 2 announced
The bout order for the upcoming UFC 168 card to close out 2013 has now been confirmed by UFC officials with 11 total fights taking place including the main event rematch pitting middleweight champion Chris Weidman against Anderson Silva.
The co-main event is also a rematch for the ages as well as one of the nastiest rivalries in UFC history when women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey makes her second appearance in the Octagon to take on fellow Ultimate Fighter coach Miesha Tate.
Also on deck is a heavyweight tilt with potential title implications on the line when former champion Josh Barnett takes on Travis Browne.
The main card will be rounded out by lightweight Jim Miller, who looks to bounce back from a tough outing earlier this year against Pat Healy, when he takes on Brazilian submission specialist Fabricio Camoes as well as a featherweight showcase between former Ultimate Fighter winner Diego Brandao against Dustin Poirier, which will lead the pay-per-view card.
