UFC 162 main event now almost official



As expected, Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman for the middleweight title looks to be the main event of UFC 161, which takes place on 7/6 in Las Vegas.

The fight, in the works for several weeks, looks to now be official as UFC's CEO, Lorenzo Fertitta, told Weidman today when both were in Albany, NY, lobbying for UFC to be legalized, that Silva had just agreed to the fight.

Weidman then released the story to Newsday in Long Island, his home town newspaper.  The fight has not yet been signed.
