Anderson Silva will return to the Octagon on July 6, against Chris Weidman, two days after American Independence Day. The UFC usually holds a large events in that holiday week and, according to information obtained by TATAME, Black House managers Jorge Guimarães and Ed Soares are in negotiations for a fight on this date.

Contacted by TATAME, Chris Weidman's agent Dave Martin, confirmed that the UFC is interested in the fight for the Independence Day week, which should happen in Las Vegas. He said there have been initial contact to make the match, and Weidman waiting for a positive response from Zuffa.

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is 100% physically, and awaits the official announcement of his next fight, while meeting business commitments. His last performance took place at UFC Rio 3, when he knocked out Stephan Bonnar in a non-tile super fight without putting the title on the line.

The undefeated Weidman has not fought since his victory over Mark Munoz by knockout, and is coming off a shoulder injury.

Wait wait wait....

So the guy Anderson was said to be "ducking" is in fact Anderson's very next fight, and Anderson is in fact Weidman's very next fight after his "big win" as soon as he is able to fight again?

THIS IS SHOCKING TO ME.

Shocking?

You mean after turning the fight down once already, watching his preferred matches with bisping and rockhold get kaybashed, and having Evans lose, suddenly it's proof anderson will fight anyone when there was virtually no other choice for him but to accept this fight? Phone Post

That's all well and good. But what does it come down to?

Anderson is fighting Weidman as soon as Weidman is ready. He will fight anyone. It should be obvious by now. You know you don't always have to be a hater ... just fyi

Absolutely. But if you were in his position, an you had the option of waiting for a different credible opponent (provided they win) and you could make millions more fighting that opponent.

And you didn't even decide to wait for other options to fight, I'd call you a fucking idiot. Anderson Silva is no idiot.

Seems like the UFC is trying to go in a different direction by matching up the #1 contender with the champion from that division. This could be interesting.
