Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort talk trash during the weigh-in for UFC 126 on Friday, Feb. 4, 2011, at Mandalay Bay Events Center.

UFC 126's main event Saturday features a middleweight championship bout between belt-holder Anderson “The Spider” Silva and top contender Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort. Silva is looking to continue his record for the longest active winning streak in the UFC. Fellow Brazilian Belfort, a former UFC light heavyweight champ, is hoping to regain his footing in the UFC after a string of injuries that have kept him out of The Octagon.

Other exciting main card match-ups include local favorite Forrest Griffin taking on Rich Franklin, and the always-exciting Jon “Bones” Jones competing against The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 winner Ryan “Darth” Bader. Also, former WEC Bantamweight standouts Miguel Torres and Antonio Banuelos will get their first chance to fight for the UFC after the two promotions recently merged.
