It appears as if the “biggest fight in MMA history” could take place later this year.
UFC president Dana White believes UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman could defend his title against Anderson Silva on the year-end December 28 UFC 168 card.
Currently, that event is set to host Ronda Rousey-Miesha Tate for Rousey’s bantamweight title. According to the report by LA Times writer Lance Pugmire, that bout would be shifted to February if Weidman-Silva II is booked.
Immediately following Weidman’s win over Silva, White stated that a rematch would be huge in terms of importance and money in the grand scheme of things. However, “The Spider” said he had no desire to fight the new champion again.
