Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen

Anderson SilvaChael Sonnen

UFC 117 takes place this Saturday from the Oracle Arena in beautiful Oakland, California. The main event features Anderson “The Spider” Silva defending his middleweight (MW) title against Chael Sonnen. Silva has won 12 straight and this will be his 10th UFC fight as the MW champ. Sonnen’s mouth will be entering the octagon far ahead of him, following weeks of verbal abuse directed toward the champ. He even went as far as to proclaim that “Silva is the champ, but I’m the best.” Not wise considering Silva has destroyed UFC fighters more brutally than this fat kid demolishing McDonalds. First he’ll play with you a little, then he’ll friggin annihilate you like like a helpless McNugget. Just ask Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin how it feels to fight the Spider.

Jon Fitch vs. Thiago Alves

The co-main event is a welterweight match featuring Jon Fitch and Thiago “The Pitbull” Alves. The winner presumably will fight the winner of George St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck following their match at the conclusion of this season of The Ultimate Fighter.  Fitch has been on a tear in the UFC, posting a 12-1 record with a victory over the Pitbull already. His only loss was at the hands of St. Pierre, and a rematch would be well deserved with a victory. Alves will be looking to avenge a 2006 loss to Fitchand get back to winning after a loss to St. Pierre, injury and a year outside the octagon. Here’s the preview for the rematch:
