White wants Weidman vs. Silva rematch at UFC 168 NYE show

Monday, July 08, 2013

The UFC generally holds its largest show of the year around New Years eve, which this year would be UFC 168 on Dec 28.

A major rematch, Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate at the conclusion of TUF 18 had been targeted for the show, but now the most anticipated rematch in the sport’s history may be in the offing.

Lance Pugmire of the LA Times tweeted the news.

@danawhite just told me he’s so amped about @SpiderAnderson @ChrisWeidmanUFC rematch, he’s thinking of moving it to Dec. 28. #UFC

Immediately after the fight Anderson Silva showed little interest in discussing a rematch, but that is not expected to last.

If the Weidman vs. Silva rematch takes place at UFC 168, the Rousey vs. Tate rematch would likely be moved to the Super Bowl weekend show on Feb 1 in New Jersey.
