Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen Make Weight For UFC 148, Fired Up Champion Bumps Into Challenger

Silva and Sonnen are separated

By FCF Staff

In keeping with the anger he displayed at the pre-fight, UFC 148 presser earlier this week, once again, Anderson Silva had to be separated from Chael Sonnen at the official weigh-ins today in Las Vegas.

After the middleweight champion weighed in at 184 pounds, and Sonnen at 185, Silva appeared to bump his shoulder right into the face of the challenger as they squared off.

The rivals are fighting for the first time since August, 2010, when Silva came from behind to submit Sonnen in the fifth and final round.
