UFC Quick Quote: Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva 2 will be the biggest fight in UFC history

USA TODAY Sports

Dana White is pegging Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva 2 at UFC 168 as the biggest fight in UFC history.

"This fight between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman will be the biggest fight in UFC history. This is the biggest fight out there right now, and that's saying a lot considering the rest of our year."

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White tells ESPN that he believes the recently announced UFC 168 main event between Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva will be the "biggest fight" in the organization's history. Weidman and Silva are set to go to battle for a second time with the middleweight championship on the line inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Dec. 28, 2013. It is unknown exactly what White defines as "the biggest fight in UFC history," be it attendance, online trends, pay-per-view (PPV) buys or all of the above. If it's PPV buys --which is ultimately where the most money is made-- the New Year's weekend event featuring Weidman vs. Silva 2 and Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate 2 will need to surpass the landmark UFC 100 fight card in July 2009 that was headlined by a championship double bill of Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir and Georges St. Pierre vs. Thiago Alves. The anticipation is already building for UFC 168 and time will only tell how big the fight will turn out to be.
