White confident, but Silva/Weidman rematch not finalized yet


Although rumors have been circulating for the past few days that a rematch between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman is all but a done deal, UFC President Dana White revealed to Yahoo that nothing is finalized yet:

White told Yahoo! Sports via telephone earlier in the week that he felt the bout could draw a massive crowd to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, but said "This just feels like one of those huge Vegas fights to me." White has repeatedly said he thinks Silva-Weidman II will be the largest-grossing, best-selling pay-per-view card in UFC history.

"We are talking about a rematch and I am and have been confident I will get it done," White told Yahoo! Sports via text message. "It isn't done yet, though."

It will be the fight is way too money not to be. As for the fight I think Silva will win, but he may just become the most hated fighter in history if he clowns again and gets knocked out early.

Don't think any champ should be the road team in Brazil.This rematch will happen, it's all about deciding where and when. I think it will be in Vegas again.

I'd like to see this in a brazillian stadium. Weidman said he'd give silva a rematch in Brazil so why not! Would be an amazing crowd.
