Hot off the press (or in this case, Twitter)! The official event poster for “UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman” has just hit the Internet. There’s really nothing too special about the billboard, but Chris Weidman probably won’t appreciate that it’s made in Anderson Silva’s trademark bumblebee colorway. Silva puts his middleweight crown on the line July 6 against arguably the biggest threat to his reign in Weidman.  A co-main event hasn’t been officially confirmed for the lineup, but it appears the scrap will not make it onto the ad anyways. MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the festivities. Here is the show’s current lineup: Preliminary Card: Norman Parke vs. Kazuki Tokudome Edson Barboza vs. John Makdessi Shane Del Rosario vs. Dave Herman Seth Baczynski vs. Brian Melancon Chris Leben vs. Andrew Craig Edson Barboza vs. John Makdessi Mike Pierce vs. David Mitchell Roger Gracie vs. Tim Kennedy Cub Swanson vs. Dennis Siver Frankie Edgar vs. Charles Oliveira Mark Munoz vs. Tim Boetsch Ricardo Lamas vs. “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva (UFC middleweight champion)
