Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva II could take place at UFC 168

The UFC's traditional year-end event could very well have a new headliner if UFC President Dana White has his way.



White today told the Los Angeles Times' Lance Pugmire that he's targeting UFC 168, which takes place Dec. 28 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena, for the rematch of this past weekend's UFC 162 headliner between Chris Weidman (10-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) and Anderson Silva (33-5 MMA, 16-1 UFC). MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed White's intentions with a UFC official.

"@danawhite just told me he's so amped about @SpiderAnderson @ChrisWeidmanUFC rematch, he's thinking of moving it to Dec. 28," Pugmire wrote on Twitter. "@danawhite said he'd shift @RondaRousey @MieshaTate bout to Super Bowl weekend, just considering it now."

Following this past Saturday night's historic UFC 162 event in Las Vegas, White officially announced UFC 168 would see women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) would face former Strikeforce title holder Miesha Tate (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) in the evening's main event. However, he's since reconsidered his position and it seems will now attempt to book Weidman vs. Silva II for the night's featured slot.

Weidman has already expressed his desire to face Silva a second time after scoring a second-round knockout over "The Spider" at UFC 162 to become just the sixth middleweight champion in UFC history. The former champ has suggested he's not interested in the reamtch right now, but White believes time will see the Brazilian reconsider his position and seek redemption against the undefeated Weidman.

If Weidman vs. Silva II does take place at UFC 168, the Rousey vs. Tate bout would likely head an as-yet-unnamed UFC event that's scheduled for Feb. 1 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. However, UFC execs to officially make the switch.

Weidman will drop him with the right this time.

When GSP lost to Serra, he had to fight twice and wait a year before his rematch. And that was a clear fluke loss, whereas Weidman just beat Silva on the ground and then inevitably standing.


If this rematch happens I predict Silva won't know what to do. His taunting and confidence is an integral part of his counter striking style. If he can't trust his ability to do that who knows how he'll look. We already know on the ground Weidman is much better, he can dominate positionally and still have room to try various submissions without giving up dominance.

Weidman finished Silva on the ground this time. Probably in the first. Want to see a real fight rather than a controversial debacle because one fighter doesn't care.

I think Silva was serious about not fighting for the title anymore. So if there will be a rematch between the two, it will be after Weidman lost his belt to someone else.

I don't agree with you on Weidman's ground. He took him down and threw a couple punches. They scrambled and he grabbed Anderson's leg. Anderson got out. Then Anderson stuffed the next TD with ease. So to say Weidman can dominate Silva on the ground is odd. Silva did very well at neutralizing Chris's TD and looked good enough to defend on the ground. (from the little we saw). Looked nothing like Chael in the first fight.

But I do question Anderson's offensive/non-countering striking. Seems like he doesn't feel comfortable striking with anything other than backing up/counter tactics. Seems like he has forgot any Chute Box blitz, destroy roots. And that is a problem. You can't Forrest Griffin everyone at this level.

Those that Silva brutally knocked out telegraf their punches. Griffin, Bonnar and Leben does that. Weidman does not have to because he has the same range as Silva and knows he is going to score on the ground sooner or later.

Weidman wins on an arm bar in a rematch.

this is true.

and if a Silva with a good defensive game and his great counters shows up, then I think he might beat Weidman.


This coming from a big Weidman fan.
