The five fights airing live during the “UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman” pay-per-view broadcast has been finalized.  Obviously, a middleweight title tilt between champion Anderson Silva (pictured) and Chris Weidman headline the July 6 festivities. However, nobody knew the featherweight scrap with Frankie Edgar and Charles Oliveira scored co-main event status until now. Strikeforce transfers Roger Gracie and Tim Kennedy get the night’s third-to-top billing. Critical 145-pound shootouts between Ricardo Lamas and “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung, as well as Cub Swanson vs. Dennis Siver round out the main card. A top contender for the division will likely emerge from the foursome. MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada serves as host. Here is the show’s current roster: Preliminary Card: (Facebook and FX) Mike Pierce vs. David Mitchell Seth Baczynski vs. Brian Melancon Shane Del Rosario vs. Dave Herman Edson Barboza vs. John Makdessi Norman Parke vs. Kazuki Tokudome Chris Leben vs. Andrew Craig Mark Munoz vs. Tim Boetsch Main Card: (Pay-Per-View 10PM ET/7PM PT) Cub Swanson vs. Dennis Siver Ricardo Lamas vs. “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung Roger Gracie vs. Tim Kennedy Frankie Edgar vs. Charles Oliveira Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva (UFC middleweight champion)
