White: Weidman vs. Silva ‘more possible than people think’

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

UFC president Dana White met with top contender Chris Weidman last week, and on Tuesday’s edition of UFC Tonight, White revealed that the unbeated Wiedman could be facing UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva after all.

“I think that fight’s closer and more possible than people think,” said UFC president Dana White. “I actually thought Weidman was going to be out a lot longer than he was because of his injuries. But, he’s healed up pretty well and he’s going to be ready to start training again in a couple months.”

“We’re looking at a couple different options right now, some options that we like. And Weidman is one of them.”

How possible do you think the fight is? And why?
