Weidman: Rematch will erase any doubts

Thursday, July 11, 2013

A rematch between Chris Weidman and Anderson could possibly be the biggest fight in the history of the UFC. So much so that a rumor is floating that Dana White is considering Cowboys Stadium for the fight. And a rematch is something that Weidman welcomes, as it’s the opportunity to prove the first fight was no fluke:

“No matter what I did, even if I submitted him the first round or knocked him out in the first round, there were going to be people who doubted me,” Weidman said. “I can’t worry about that. I just have to go out and fight him again and try to win.”

Weidman said he was fine with either date and looked forward to the opportunity to hand a legend a second unexpected defeat. And he promised it would be more spectacular than the first.

“I want to be known as one of the greatest of all time,” Weidman said. “You get there one fight at a time. First up is Anderson Silva again. We’ll go from there. I want to dominate my next fight really bad. Like, completely dominate.”
