The rich got richer this week as the fight bookings for the UFC confirmed that the July 4 weekend card in Las Vegas will definitely be one of the biggest shows of the year.
In addition to two title fights featuring Chris Weidman against Lyoto Machida with the middleweight belt on the line as well as Ronda Rousey taking on Alexis Davis in the women’s bantamweight division, UFC 175 will also feature the biggest grudge match in recent history as Chael Sonnen takes on Wanderlei Silva.
Now the show has also added one of the most popular fighters in the UFC as Urijah Faber will return to action as he takes on former Ultimate Fighter competitor Alex Caceres on the upcoming card taking place on July 5 in Las Vegas.
In addition to Faber vs. Caceres being booked, several UFC Fight Night cards got additional bouts added to them this week as well as the upcoming FOX UFC Saturday show in San Jose filling out its roster of bouts.
