UFC 162: History in Focus

UFC 162 is now firmly behind us, but the talk surrounding it most certainly is not.  In fact, it is unlikely that UFC 162 will ever be forgotten, at least not until the now confirmed rematch between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman goes down.

As anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock now knows, at UFC 162 Chris Weidman dethroned Anderson Silva, the greatest champion in the history of the UFC.  He did so in spectacular and somewhat controversial fashion.  Nonetheless, the reign of Anderson Silva over the UFC middleweight division is now officially over, and MMA fans around the world are left wondering what is next. 

The answer is a rematch.  Until Chris Weidman fights Anderson Silva again, very few will be able to believe that Weidman’s victory was anything more than a fluke, a lucky punch.  Luckily, on December 28th of this year the rematch is all set to go down, and we can expect it to be the biggest fight in UFC history.

In the meantime, sit back and enjoy this amazing slideshow of photos from the now historical UFC 162.  The photos are all courtesy of one of MMA’s top photographers Esther Lin.
