Anderson Silva Wants Weidman Rematch On Super Bowl Weekend

It was announced today that Anderson Silva wants a shot at getting his belt back from Chris Weidman and has decided that Super Bowl weekend in February 2014 is the perfect time for the highly anticipated face off to go down, at this time it is thought that the event may be held in New Jersey.

Guilherme Cruz tweeted this:

“According to Lauro Jardim (@radaronline), from @Veja, sources close to Anderson Silva revealed he wants a rematch with Weidman on Feb. 2014”

According to close sources of Silva he changed his mind about not having a rematch against Weidman just hours after he was knocked out at UFC 162 in Las Vegas. They said they have never seen Silva so motivated to fight someone, and that a little over 24 hours after the loss Silva was jokingly wishing the rematch could happen this week. That’s how badly he wants to avenge his loss to Weidman.
