The Chris Weidman vs Anderson Silva rematch continues to become more real and tantalizing by the day. Not only is Anderson Silva now down to avenge his loss, but Dana White looks like he wants to pull out all the stops to make this fight the biggest fight in the history of the sport:
White plans on calling Silva on Thursday to discuss a rematch. He says it will be the biggest fight in UFC history and is considering holding it at Cowboys Stadium in Texas, which has a capacity of 105,000.
Cowboys Stadium has been the mythical mega show the UFC has wanted to do for years now, and originally people figured it would be saved for Andy vs GSP or Jon Jones. It may still be – throwing an event in a venue so massive comes with all sorts of unforseen complications and issues. But it just goes to show you the scale the UFC wants this rematch to be on.
