Now, the women’s contest will take second billing, as Weidman (10-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) scored a shocking second-round knockout of Silva (33-5 MMA, 16-1 UFC) on July 6 that instantly earned their second fight must-see status.

“I’m super stoked about being on the same card as Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman,” Rousey told USA TODAY Sports and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). “It’ll alleviate some of the promotional stress and pressure because there’ll be more of us working to promote this big card.”
