The UFC Middleweight division's number #1 contender spends some time with the former UFC Welterweight champion Matt "The Terror" Serra at Team Quest in Oregon to get the inside look at his fight camp preparation for his second shot at Anderson Silva on July 7th. Serra (who seems to have found a new role for the UFC doing these fight camp insider videos) will also be visiting Forrest Griffin and Tito Ortiz to see what they are up too before they lock horns for the 3rd and final time as the co-main event of UFC 148.
We even get a look at Chael's long time squeeze, his mom, and is that Mr. Danger Waffles too? Solid job by Serra and his crew in this one, the 1st of hopefully many Fight Camp Insider video blogs.

In combat sports, great champions tend to be defined by their rivals. In MMA, the one exception had been Anderson Silva -- for quite some time. The middleweight champion had been without peers in the division; the most anyone can claim to have done against him is taken a round up until UFC 117. Silva was dominant in a way that no champion in the UFC has been since; no one seemed...

2012 at Estádio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. It was
