The UFC are pulling out all the stops to make Saturday night’s UFC 148 a big success and that includes a week of festivities in Las Vegas which will culminate with their latest fan expo.

Dana White has claimed for some time that this event will be “One of the biggest sporting events of the year” thanks to the major middleweight title rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen, and has also predicted that it will do in excess of one million pay-per-view buys which if true would more than likely make it the company’s best seller for 2012 by some distance.
