PLAYERS: Anderson Silva
Middleweight champ Chris Weidman and newfound rival Anderson Silva woke up early to head to New York City for another round of media appearances on their UFC 168 world tour. But it was their fans who woke up even earlier. Some fans in the Big Apple got up at 5 o'clock in the morning, and even skipped work, to see their heroes at the UFC Gym. Even Anderson Silva opens his video recap interview with, "I'm tired." The city that never sleeps, huh? On December 28 , however, we have a strong feeling that one of these main eventers will be catching some zzz's facedown on the canvas.
