Rousey will take on Alexis Davis this Saturday night for the female bantamweight title, while Weidman meets Lyoto Machida. Wresting Inc. will have complete coverage of all the action.
- Chris Weidman truly believes his challenge this Saturday night at UFC 175 will be his toughest yet, as the middleweight champion defends his belt against Lyoto Machida. Weidman defeated Anderson Silva twice last year, both by second round finishes.
"I think Machida is the toughest test for me in the division. Tougher than Anderson - Anderson has a mental edge on most his opponents," Weidman said on UFC Tonight. "Machida is more well-rounded, has better wrestling, and he's more elusive. He's not afraid to win a boring decision. I have to maintain my patience, but stay aggressive."
As for how the fight will go down, Weidman believes a third finish of a Brazilian is in store, saying, "I got a full training came and I will finish the fight.
"I'm going to mix it up. It's all about deception, it's physical game of chess. I expect to hit him and he'll still be there. I always expect to go through tough times in a fight, but hope for the best."
- UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw is likely headed for a homecoming of sorts for his first title defense, as UFC Tonight reported on Wednesday that Dillashaw is expected to face Renan Barao at UFC 177. The card is set for August 30 from Sacramento, which is the home of Team Alpha Male. Dillashaw won the title from Barao with a fifth round TKO victory earlier this year.
