Report: Chris Weidman-Anderson Silva II Targeted For UFC 168

Maybe Anderson Silva doesn’t need a couple of months to decide if he wants a rematch with new UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

UFC president Dana White seems intent on making the bout, which he previously called the “biggest fight” in MMA history.

Weidman stunned fans and Silva when he knocked the long-time champion out this past weekend at UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman, earning his 10th career victory and first UFC title.

Now, according to a report by LA Times writer Lance Pugmire, White is considering pairing the two together at the year-end event on December 28 currently titled UFC 168: Rousey vs. Tate II.

The planned main event between UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate would be moved until February and the Super Bowl weekend card in New Jersey.
