Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have hoarded TMZ’s headlines lately (what else is new?) for their dubious decision to name their baby daughter North West. Yeah… What the heck does “Kimye” have to do with MMA, you ask? Well, the UFC decided to use Kanye’s “Power” to help promote their upcoming “UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman” event. “No one man should have all that power.” Enjoy it while you can, Anderson Silva (pictured), because your record breaking reign is about to come to a screeching halt – that is if you ask top contender Chris Weidman, of course. UFC 162 takes place July 6 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
