The official UFC 153 lineup is set for this Saturday’s fight card at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Headlining the card will be UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva moving up to light heavyweight to take on long-time UFC veteran Stephan Bonnar.
The night will feature Facebook, FX, and PPV cards. One change was made after Geronimo Dos Santos was injured, as Gabriel Gonzaga was dropped from the FX card without an opponent. The card will now run a four fight schedule rather than adding one of the Facebook fights to the card. The PPV main card will feature six fights topped off by the Silva vs. Bonnar showdown.
Be sure to tune in this Saturday for what should be an action-packed card.
