MicroTech Sponsors Weidman, Edgar, Barboza – MicroKloud in the UFC 162 Spotlight

MicroTech is sponsoring three top ranked fighters in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 162 event this Saturday night. Wearing the MicroKloud® logo will be Chris “All-American” Weidman, Frankie “The Answer” Edgar, and Edson “Junior” Barboza. Watch the sparks fly starting at 10 p.m. (ET) Live on Pay-Per-View at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the main event, Weidman will fight to take the belt from UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva, who Joe Rogan calls, “the single greatest marital artist that the world has ever known.” Silva (33-4) has trapped 16 consecutive opponents in his web, and devoured every last one of them.

An optimistic Weidman feels he is the one to take the title from The Spider. “I’ve been dreaming about this fight with Anderson Silva since I started MMA,” Weidman said in a UFC pre-fight interview.

Weidman (9-0) is the No. 1 UFC Middleweight contender. He has the highest takedown rate of any active middleweight, and has out struck every one of his opponents. A competitive wrestler since he was a kid, Weidman has twice attained the title of NCAA Division 1 All-American.

Leading up to the Weidman/Silva main event, Barboza (11-1) will go against Rafaello Oliveira (16-5) in the lightweight division. Edgar (15-4), a long time MicroTech-sponsored fighter will be fighting against featherweight Charles Oliveira (16-3) in the co-main event.

ESPN ranks Edgar as the No. 10 pound-for-pound fighter in mixed martial arts. As a former UFC Lightweight Champion, the New Jersey native is used to going the full five rounds. With a weight class move to featherweight, his fight with Oliveira will be his first three-round fight since 2009.

In his pre-fight interview, Edgar said that he thinks going back to a three-round fight is a “blessing in disguise.” He said that since he only has such a short time (only 15 minutes), he needs to attack early and get into the kind of rhythm he uses in the fourth and fifth rounds.

Weidman, Edgar and Barboza will all be displaying the MicroKloud logo on their shorts highlighting MicroTech’s family of cloud computing solutions. The MicroKloud is the cornerstone of MicroTech’s many initiatives to simplify customers' transition to the cloud. With a focus on agility, scalability, and security, this cost-effective, private cloud is a next-generation solution.

Tune in at 10 p.m. (ET) Live on Pay-Per-View and watch Weidman, Edgar, and Barboza fight to glory in UFC 162 this Saturday night!
