Final bout order for UFC 168: Weidman vs. Silva 2 announced

The bout order for the upcoming

target="_blank">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

target="_blank">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.
