Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva rematch signed for Dec. 28 in Las Vegas Live at MGM!

NEW UPDATES: I'll continue posting new updates on anything relevant regarding Silva vs Weidman II to clean up the threads.

DANA WHITE: CHRIS WEIDMAN-ANDERSON SILVA REMATCH OFFICIAL FOR DEC. 28 IN LAS VEGAS

After some doubt, deliberation and more than a little speculation, a date and venue have been set for the rematch between Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva.

UFC President Dana White announced on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Saturday that the bout will take place on Dec. 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event, which is expected to be 168, also includes a women’s bantamweight title clash between Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate in the co-main event.

After a 16-fight winning streak in the Octagon, which included 10 successful middleweight title defenses, Silva was upset by Weidman in the UFC 162 headliner. “The Spider” clowned and taunted his opponent throughout the fight, but paid dearly for his antics when Weidman landed a left hook and finished the contest with follow-up punches 1:18 into the second round. In a post-fight interview, Silva expressed little interest in a rematch but has obviously changed his tune since then, proclaiming that he is “back” in a brief sound bite on SportsCenter.

“What changed is when Anderson Silva talked after the fight, the guy forgot what it’s like to lose,” White told ESPN. “He hasn’t lost ever in the UFC. Never lost, broke every record we’ve ever had. Anderson is motivated, fired up and wants the belt back.” http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Dan...as-Vegas-53893

He thought he'd feel excitement, exhilaration, even relief, but in the minutes after winning the UFC middleweight championship, Chris Weidman admitted that he was already feeling anxiety about defending the crown.

Now, he can look forward to getting back to work.

On Saturday, UFC president Dana White announced on SportsCenter that the rematch between Weidman and Anderson Silva has been signed for Dec. 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The fight will be the main event of a blockbuster show that will also feature a women's championship fight between Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate.

White said he finished the deal about one hour before announcing it.

"I'll tell you this: I think this will be the biggest pay-per-view we've ever done," White told MMA Fighting moments after making the announcement.

Weidman knocked out Silva at 1:18 of the second round on a left hook followed by ground strikes. In doing so, the unbeaten 29-year-old became the first man to defeat Silva since 2006.

White said Silva was hungry to get his belt back, and ESPN played a short clip with "the Spider," who said the same.

"My fans in the UFC and my fans in the world and the United States, Dec. 28 I go back to fight, Weidman and Anderson Silva. I'm back. Trust me, I'm back." http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/7/13...8-in-las-vegas [/url]

UFC striking coach Mike Winkeljohn on Anderson Silva's shocking loss to Chris Weidman at UFC 162

Quick synopsis. "I was shocked in that. It ruined my parlay bet. Chris took Anderson down, Anderson gotsome extension on em and got up. He started to get into Chris' head and that's what he does. I think Anderson took it too far..." Good review.

Anderson Silva's Daughter on Dad Losing Title, UFC

Quote:
Anderson Silva’s 17-year-old daughter, Kaory, has taken to Twitter to voice her opinions on her father’s loss over the weekend.

The former middleweight champion’s eldest daughter attacked the UFC for chasing profits and losing respect for the martial arts, while crediting her dad as the sole reason for his success.

“It was thanks to my father that my life changed, it was thanks to his talent that our life changed, it was thanks to his adversaries that my life changed and not because of the UFC,” she wrote (H/T Fighters Only Magazine). “It was because people valued my father’s work that my life changed, not because of UFC.”

Silva’s seven year reign as champion came to a dramatic end on Saturday after he got knocked out by Chris Weidman in the second round. Thus ended the longest winning streak in UFC history, but there are many who still believe the Brazilian lost on purpose.

They point to his showboating antics during the match, which were extreme even for Silva, as the cause of his downfall, rather than crediting Weidman for the win. After the fight, Silva himself seemed relieved to relinquish the belt and declared that he no longer intends to chase the title.

Kaory also said that she is happy her father is no longer champion.

“He will always be a champion. He has already showed to the world that nobody can beat him if he doesn’t want it,” she wrote. “I never liked the ideal of my father being a fighter and now that I know he is tired of it I will give him all my support.”

Such sentiments may be short lived, however, as the UFC hastily plans the Silva/Weidman rematch. In fact, according to some reports, Silva is itching to get back in the cage and avenge his first UFC loss. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...m_campaign=mma
UFC already planning rematch between Silva, Weidman possibly at Cowboy Stadium - 100,000+ Super Bowl Weekend.

Quote:
Anderson Silva (l.) and Chris Weidman will fight again soon -- UFC president Dana White just doesn't know when.
LAS VEGAS – The dust has settled here in the desert. Four days after the most stunning moment in UFC history, company president Dana White is already talking rematch.
“Hell yes,” White said in an exclusive interview with The Post.
On Saturday night at MGM Grand, Anderson Silva, the greatest MMA fighter to ever grace the Octagon, was knocked out by unheralded Long Island native Chris Weidman. Silva clowned around, daring Weidman to hurt him. And Weidman did, ending Silva’s seven-year reign atop the UFC middleweight division with one resounding left hook in the second round.
Call it the punch heard ’round the world. UFC 162 was the most illegally downloaded UFC card ever – after the fact – when people heard about the improbable, controversial finish. Even Justin Bieber tweeted out to his nearly 42 million followers a request to find a streaming video, to which White replied that he should find it on pay per view.
The post-fight press conference was the most watched on UFC.com by 46 percent. Weidman has been on a week-long victory press tour in New York.
"Every time I talk about what it is we do, what it is we sell, that was the epitome of it on Saturday night," White said.
Not all the media attention has been positive, including a video on SI.com calling into question whether or not the fight was fixed due to Silva’s antics.
White says such allegations make him “crazy.”
“If you think that fight was fixed, you have to be the biggest moron on Earth,” White said. “The guy got knocked dead. His head was bouncing off the canvas like a basketball.”
Furthermore, he added, why would a multi-billion dollar company like the UFC fix a fight in which Weidman was only a 2-to-1 underdog?
“Some guy asked me if this was the biggest upset since Buster Douglas [beating Mike Tyson],” White said. “Buster Douglas was 25-to-1. Chris Weidman was 2-to-1 and most of the fighters picked Chris Weidman to win.”
The boss does admit the ending was strange, that Silva not only dropping his hands but also pretending to be on jelly legs was “craziness.” Silva has been known to draw opponents in with bizarre behavior in the cage. This was a different level.
“We’ve seen him do it before,” White said. “What the difference is, is that Weidman has real punching power and Weidman went after him when he did it. All the other guys were kind of shell shocked and just didn’t know what to do it.”
White plans on calling Silva on Thursday to discuss a rematch. He says it will be the biggest fight in UFC history and is considering holding it at Cowboys Stadium in Texas, which has a capacity of 105,000.
Doing it on Super Bowl weekend – the UFC has a show in New Jersey the night before the game at MetLife Stadium – has been ruled out, because he believes a fight of that magnitude should stand on its own. White says it could still happen this year, though it is unlikely with an already packed slate of events on the UFC’s calendar through December.
“A lot of people think Anderson beat himself,” White said. “This rematch is not only for Anderson Silva to win his belt back, but it’s for Chris Weidman to prove he’s the real deal and not a fluke.”
Silva said immediately following the fight that he wasn’t into the rematch, that he was “tired” and no longer wanted to fight for the belt. MMAFighting.com reported Wednesday that the legend has changed his mind already – he wants Weidman again before the end of the year.
“Anderson Silva is a competitor – hardcore, to the bone competitor,” White said. “This guy has been on top of the world for eight years. … He wants it back.” http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/the_ma...#axzz2Yi0QwjpL

Anderson Silva wants to fight Chris Weidman again after all, and he wants the rematch to happen sooner rather than later.


Here we go...

Quote:
According to sources very close to the former UFC middleweight champion, Silva changed his tune about not fighting Weidman again just hours after he was knocked out by Weidman at UFC 162 on Saturday night in Las Vegas. The sources said they have never seen Silva so motivated to fight someone, and that a little over 24 hours after the loss Silva was jokingly wishing the rematch could happen this week. That's how badly he wants to avenge his loss to Weidman.

The sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the rematch has yet to be announced by the UFC, said Silva's preference would be to fight Weidman again this year, not in February, as has been discussed by UFC president Dana White.

White told the Los Angeles Times earlier this week that he was contemplating bumping the Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate fight from Dec. 28 to Feb. 1 because he didn't want Weidman vs. Silva 2 to be in the shadows of the Super Bowl, which takes place Feb. 2 in New Jersey. Weidman said on CBS Sports Radio on Wednesday that White and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta told him earlier this week the fight would take place in either December or February. The new champion has already stated on numerous occasions that he wants to fight Silva again, too.

Immediately after UFC 162, Silva surprised the MMA world when he said he had no interest in fighting Weidman again for the belt, however, White correctly predicted Silva would change his tune.

Now the only question remains is when and where potentially the biggest fight in UFC history will take place.

Quote:
Like most of the MMA world, Jon Jones was sitting front and center Saturday night when Anderson Silva lost to Chris Weidman in one of the most shocking finishes in UFC history.

Whether the odds going into the fight were close or not, it seemed everyone was in disbelief when Weidman connected with two left hands that put Silva down and out for the first time in his UFC career.

On the night of the fight, Jones took to Twitter and expressed himself in just two words—"this sucks" (the tweet has since been deleted).

During a UFC 165 pre-fight press conference on Tuesday, Jones clarified his statement a bit by explaining that he is an Anderson Silva fan, so it was tough watching the greatest middleweight ever go down the way he did.

"Initially I thought it sucked, Anderson Silva is a guy I look up to a lot," Jones stated. "To see a great champion go down so obviously my initial reaction was yeah, this sucked."

Silva has been criticized quite a bit for his antics in the fight where he put his hands down, stuck his chin out and basically dared Weidman to take a shot at him.

It's nothing new in the history of Silva's fights. He's done it time and time again, but this is the first time it has ever backfired on him.

Jones was watching carefully and admits that as good as Silva is as a fighter, he lost sight of what it meant to be so gifted by toying and playing with an opponent. When it went wrong, it cost him dearly.

"I think that Anderson Silva is a magnificent fighter. I think he has an extraordinary gift, I think he's got to the point where he really believes in his gift, and he's comfortable with his gift, and he abused his gift. He disrespected the gift by disrespecting his opponent," Jones said. "Martial arts is a sport that's traditionally based around honor and integrity and treating people with respect and he somehow lost sight of that. He paid the ultimate price for it."

"I'm not over the Anderson Silva hype train. I know exactly where he was at, you could tell where he was at by the way he was fighting. I think he was fighting at a masterful level. I think he just got disrespectful and the war gods just made him pay for it. He's still that great Anderson Silva in my book."

Jones also learned a very valuable lesson from watching Silva tumble on Saturday night.

No matter how much hype or attention a fighter receives for their past performances, it can all change in a moment's notice.

On Saturday night, Weidman was the superior fighter and it came at the expense of one of the best of all time. Jones has no intention of letting his next opponent Alexander Gustafsson—or anybody else for that matter—feel the same sense of accomplishment when facing him.

"It actually motivates me a lot too to watch somebody who I look up to like that lose. It's just like a reality check," Jones commented. "I try to keep my ego in check when it comes to the fight game. But watching Anderson lose like that, first of all it's what I would never do is put my hands down like that and fight my opponent that way. Watching Chris Weidman's dream come true, I have to make sure I continue to be the dream-crusher. It motivated me."

Following the loss by Silva, Jones' own stature elevated as he was soon recognized as the new No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the sport.

UFC president Dana White said the same thing when he spoke about Jones on Saturday, and the official UFC ranking system backed up his assessment.

Jones isn't nearly as fast to accept the recognition because he believes that the only reason he's now the top ranked fighter is because Silva lost.

If he can go out and dispatch of Gustafsson in impressive fashion when they meet at UFC 165, then Jones will more likely accept the honor as something he earned.

"It means a lot to me, but at this point it doesn't really feel real. My goal is definitely to become the No. 1 fighter to ever do it. To become No. 1 because Anderson lost doesn't really make me feel like I accomplished anything," Jones stated. "So I am going to continue to work extremely hard to become the No. 1 light heavyweight to ever play the sport and to eventually creep up on Anderson Silva and the things Anderson Silva has done in his career.

"Yeah it doesn't really do too much for me, it doesn't feel real, it doesn't feel earned. Winning this fight will make me feel a little bit more better about it. I have the mindset to just keep in that position and make it more legit through my actions and through my performances instead of just taking a spot from a guy."

Jones' primary goal with his next fight is to defend the UFC light heavyweight title for a sixth consecutive time, which would be a new company record. If all goes well in September, he'll be a lot more receptive to receiving the accolades associated with truly becoming the best fighter in the sport today. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...ultimate-price

Anderson's loss just put every champ on notice. Anderson was at a point of it being death, taxes and Anderson Silva winning. So I think seeing him get put out regardless of the fashion it happened in is going to result in some seriously devastating performances from champions in the near future.

We haven't seen an upset like that since serra, so I think it was making people get a little, well the dominate guys just don't lose.

Jon Jones: Anderson Silva ‘abused his gift’ at UFC 162

http://www.graciemag.com/2013/07/jon...t-at-ufc-162/?

Quote:
UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones doesn’t look kindly at Anderson Silva’s performance at UFC 162.

At a press conference kicking off the ticket sales for “UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson,” Jones was critical of Silva’s behavior in the Octagon. The 205-pound champ said Silva has proven in his career that he has a gift, but that he took advantage of it last weekend in his loss to Chris Weidman.

“He abused his gift. He disrespected the gift, disrespected his opponent,” Jones said. “Martial arts is traditionally … based around honor and integrity and treating people with respect and he somehow lost sight of that and paid the ultimate price for it.

Jones, who faces Alexander Gustafsson on Sept. 21 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, has recently been centered around talks of a potential superfight with Silva. But after UFC 162, much of the talk changed from what will be to what could have been.

The light heavyweight title holder, however, isn’t completely done riding the Silva wave. Referring to the former middleweight champion as someone he “looks up to,” Jones revealed that he’s still very much a fan of “The Spider.”

“I’m not over the Anderson Silva hype train,” he said. “I know exactly where he’s at. You can tell where he’s at by the way he was fighting.”

At this time, Silva’s future is uncertain and he has downplayed the idea of getting an immediate rematch with Weidman, leaving many to wonder what his next step will be.

For Jones, it’s likely that a superfight is no longer in the books. All that remains is the bad taste in his mouth that he shares with all Silva fans.

“Initially, I thought it sucked,” Jones said of Silva’s loss by technical knockout. “Anderson Silva is a guy that I look up to a lot, and to see a great champion go down always sucks.”
Yes Jon Jones. You should know. You abused your Bently well enough.

Exactly what I was thinking after watching Silva lose. It's a notice for champs like Bones, GSP and Aldo... Guys who have defended the title a number of times and may be getting comfortable. Each contender is hungry for the title of "Champion" and each fighter deserves the attention and respect that comes with the top contender position.

GSP seemed to me to be losing steam and drive he once had, which worried me because his next opponent is extremely hungry. Hopefully watching Silva fall and having to deal with the fact that someone else is Champion will put a fire under him.

He was humiliating Weidman and got caught and still people are talking about how Weidman did the job!!!

Guys, just deep in your souls: if Anderson came out with that "W", what would you have said after he had been clowning the #1 contender? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was just ONE Lucky punch on the button, nothing more! He even couldn't tap the champ when he had a knee bar !!!!

Okay Silva deserved to loose because of disrespectful, but that takes nothing away from him.

Give me one man on the planet who is willing to take that RISK? Even the Hollywood movies don't produce such a Hero!!! Anderson Silva was that guy who took that risk, and he got clipped!

I'm 100% sure if they do a rematch? Silva will go for what he did again, and again, and again! He fights to make shows and prove he's the #1 MMA fighter on this planet.

But its all propaganda and how the media is talking about it, they are washing peoples minds with what they want us to believe. Do you honestly beleive that Silva was the #1 P4P fighter in the world and just because of that lose after years of domination, he gets -2 and +1 to Jones and GSP? GSP for what? For the lay and pray?

Silva was, and still is the #1 P4P fighter, congrats to Weidman, but Silva is still the best, and no Jones nor GSP will ever reach this level of Excellance that the Spider did.

Weidman won the first round, and the second with that KO.

In what way was Silva winning the fight?


I'm sorry mods, but we now have about 4-5 threads discussing the exact same thing here.

Agreed, this place has become almost unbearable with the same tripe being posted again and again.

Silva lost because Weidman kicked his ass on the ground and standing up for one and a half rounds. It wasn't even a close fight.

Just a hater, even DW couldn't say that. Go watch that fight again, how was Weidman wining? With the Knee bar attempt that he failed with? Or with taking Silva down and then pounding him? Sonnen did it for 5 rounds, and couldn't succeed!!!

Haters can't make judgments, because their judgment is biased !!

I'm critical of plenty about how Jones has conducted himself outside and even inside the cage, but I thought this was a decent interview for him, he came off okay with this delivery. I'm still not forgetting a guy Cheese with his hands up in the middle of the first minute with his hands up like he already won though, granted that was like two mental years ago.

I don't hate Anderson, in fact I like him and picked him to win that fight. You can check any of my pre-fight posts if you wish to confirm.

Weidman beat him fair and square. He took him down, hit him a few times, went for some sub attempts and landed more strikes, winning him the first round pretty clearly. The second round was more "competitive", but really neither guy did much until Weidman KO'd him.

Weidman legitimately beat Anderson and honestly the only person that seems biased here is you.

As for the article, good interview. It should put all champs on notice for sure that anything can happen... although I fear this will make GSP fight even more conservatively, if that is possible.
