White: Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman next… probably
With the recent losses of Michael Bisping and Rashad Evans, Chris Weidman may be the last man standing, in front of UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
“I’d have to say yes,” said White at the UFC post-fight press conference, when asked if Silva vs. Weidman was the next logical booking. “Going into this fight, we wanted to wait. We wanted to see what happened. I liked Weidman for this fight, anyway, so yeah.”
“We’ve got to make the fight. We’ve got to make sure Weidman is alright. The later the better for Weidman though.
“We’re thinking about the summer. It looks like Weidman. As long as Weidman’s healthy that’s probably the fight we’ll make.”
White said he has yet to approach Silva or his camp about the fight but hopes to get something done soon. There are a still a few variables, including Weidman’s continued recovery from a November shoulder surgery.
