“UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II” is arguably the most star-studded lineup in the history of ever, so it’s only fitting the event’s main card showcases six fights instead of the standard five.

MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the July 7th festivities.

The highly-anticipated rematch between middleweight king Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen headlines the shindig. A trilogy with bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber serves as the show’s co-featured attraction.

Additionally, Tito Ortiz’s final UFC fight when he meets Forrest Griffin, a middleweight shootout between former champ Rich Franklin and Cung Le, a 185-pound bout with Michael Bisping and Tim Boetsch, as well as Demian Maia’s welterweight debut against Dong Hyun Kim will all appear live in the pay-per-view broadcast.

The PPV begins at 10PM ET/7PM PT.

Here is the event’s updated agenda:

Preliminary Card:

Melvin Guillard vs. Fabricio Camoes

Riki Fukuda vs. Constantinos Philippou

Gleison Tibau vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov

Renan Barao vs. Ivan Menjivar

Main Card:

Demian Maia vs. Dong Hyun Kim

Michael Bisping vs. Tim Boetsch

Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le

Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin

Urijah Faber vs. Dominick Cruz (UFC Bantamweight Champion)

Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva (UFC Middleweight Champion)
