Anderson Silva, widely considered the greatest talent in the UFC and MMA, will once again put his middleweight title on the line against breakout-contender Chris Weidman.

However, all of Silva’s opponents have been confident in pre-fight rituals—and even when walking out to the cage—but when the fight starts, a whole different story unfolds.

Barao (32-1, 1NC) has gone 31 straight fights without a loss (30 wins, 1 no contest). He took out Michael McDonald in his last outing, winning via fourth round arm triangle choke.

Wineland (20-8-1) has won back-to-back fights against tough opposition in Scott Jorgensen and Brad Pickett and looks to hold championship gold once again with a win over Barao.

The co-main event will consist of a light heavyweight bout between Antonio Rogerio Nogueria and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. The fight is a rematch from their instant classic that took place in PRIDE back in 2005 in which Rua won via decision.

UFC – Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2

Title: UFC – Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2

Description: Extracts from: http://www.sportsnet.ca/

Cain Velasquez will defend his heavyweight title in a rematch against Antonio (Bigfoot) Silva.

Velasquez (12-1) and Silva (18-4) first met at UFC 146 last May where Velasquez made quick work of the Brazilian, cutting him open with an elbow and pounding out a TKO win just 3:36 into round one.

The champion is coming off a five-round unanimous decision win over Junior dos Santos at UFC 155 where he reclaimed the title he lost to dos Santos 13 months earlier.

Silva meanwhile is riding high after two consecutive knockout wins, the latest being a highlight reel KO of feared striker Alistair Overeem at UFC 156 earlier this month. Before the Overeem KO, Silva bounced back from his loss to Velasquez by knocking out Travis Browne in October.

The two men have been trash talking back and forth for over a year. Now let’s see them put their money where their mouths are.

UFC – Jones vs Sonnen

Title: UFC – Jones vs Sonnen
Location: Newark, NJ, or at your local UFC viewing venue

Description: Jones (17-1) has looked unstoppable so far in his MMA career. He possesses the ability to utilise his giant reach in order to dictate his fights by keeping his opponents at bay where he is able to pick them apart with his ever-improving striking and completely shut down their strengths.

Sonnen has fought the majority of his career in the Middleweight division, and there is no secret to his game plan. He immediately gets in fighters’ faces, drags them to the ground and uses his endless gas tank to push the pace and grind his opponents down round by round with his relentless ground and pound.

Description: Extracts from: http://www.h4-entertainment.com

Benson Henderson, the current UFC Lightweight Champion, takes on Gilbert Melendez, the final Strikeforce Lightweight Champion.

This will be Melendez’s debut in the premier MMA promotion in the world whilst Henderson has been remained unbeaten in six fights during his tenure at the UFC, dismantling ‘El Nino’s’ friend and training partner Nate Diaz in his last appearance in the octagon.

The rivals have some things in common: Neither fighter has lost more than twice; they both are extremely quick; and their range is similar. But if number of knockouts are anything to go by, Melendez will give Henderson a run for his money. Melendez has knocked out 11 of his opponents, whereas Henderson has only knocked out two.

Get down to your local for what will probably be a five-round battle to remember.

Description: From http://brisbane.budgiebolt.com:
The Youngcare Budgie Bolt is more than an excuse to wear your ‘budgies’ in public – it’s an opportunity to raise awareness and much needed funds for the 7,500 young Aussies with high care needs currently in aged care.

The idea is simple – on 22 March 2013, brave blokes and gutsy girls (yes they want you too girls!) will strip down and run 5km in nothing but budgie smugglers! Girls, don’t freak out…you’ll be wearing a top!

And no they’re not crazy; they’re just serious about raising money for young Aussies in need.

Starting at Picnic Island Green, you will follow the path over the Goodwill Bridge, through the Botanical Gardens, along the Pier and turn around at Eagle Street Pier City Cat.
