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.

They should be on the same card. That'd be one hell of way to end the year

What's the big deal about Tate/Rousey? There's no reason to expect it to last more than 2 minutes.

Unfortunately, in the current state of UFC oversaturation and too many PPVs, spreading out marquee fights will continue to be the norm.

AlexanderTheGOAT - I don't give a shit about the Rousey fight Phone Post 3.0

Yup I honestly don't care at all, I seriously lack any interest in any WMMA.

Also, why do we have to wait so long for the rematch (if it happens)?

Dana can be so annoying with this shit, Anderson lost i could see if he wanted a rematch but he said more than once he doesn't even want to fight for the belt again. Leave him alone. He is a damn legend and current goat. If he doesn't want a fight then you shouldnt even fucking question it Phone Post 3.0

I bet Dana thinks Weidman vs Silva II will make over a million PPV buys. If thats the case and given that Ronda vs Tate II can pull over 400K buys, he has no reason to leave that matchup there.

Now if youre talking about a BW or FlW title, yeah it can be placed under this one.

Because the UFC has as schedule.  Aldo/Zombie, Gus/Jones, Cain/JDS, GSP/hendricks so they can move Ronda/Tate or slide that to co main event and put the rematch as the main event of 168.

if Ronda vs Tate gets moved it will probably get moved to the fox show.  That's a fight that can pull 8 million plus viewers because Ronda gets an enormous amount of media attention.  

That fight may better serve the ufc on fox with the fs1 move (now that they finally have a home)... it will also help with getting more sponsors, etc...

Dana said the fight was trending over 800,000 buys. Throw in a rematch on nye
and it may top 1 million. Phone Post 3.0

Willy the Coyote - If it does happen in Jersey I'll have to make the trip, even though I promised myself never to go back again. Worst fans at an MMA event I've ever seen.
Ditto. Just ridiculous. Too bad, great venue. Phone Post 3.0
