UFC 148 will take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET.

The main event of Saturday’s card is for the UFC Middleweight Championship with Anderson Silva (31-4) defending his title against Chael Sonnen (27-11-1). These two met back at UFC 117 with Sonnen beating up Silva for four full rounds. In the fifth and final round, Silva managed to make Silva tap out to an armbar/triangle choke combination with two minutes remaining. It was the closest Silva has been to losing since joining the UFC back in 2006. Silva is 14-0 in the UFC and considered the favorite in this rematch, as he has a money line of -275 to win, while Sonnen has odds of +215 to prevail. Sonnen has done a lot of trash talking to get under the skin of Silva. Though Silva has been dominant, it has to be in the back of his mind that he nearly lost to Sonnen. They key will be for Sonnen to be aggressive and get takedowns while avoiding submissions, while Silva will look to keep the fight standing.

In the co-main event, light heavyweights Forrest Griffin (18-7) and Tito Ortiz (16-10-1) will meet in a rubber match and what is Ortiz’ final bout in the UFC. Each of these men have won a close decision over the other in the last six years. According to oddsmakers, Griffin is the favorite to win the third bout, as he has odds of -310 to win, while Ortiz has a money line of +250 to prevail. Ortiz won the first meeting while Griffin took the second, but both could have gone either way. Ortiz is the better wrestler of the two while Griffin is the better striker. Ortiz may come with a little more aggression as he is set to retire following this contest. Griffin also needs a win as he is just 2-3 in his last five fights.
