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.”
