Both are willing to grant Anderson Silva an immediate rematch.
That's assuming the reigning 185-pound champion falls at the upcoming UFC 162: "Silva vs. Weidman" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place this Saturday night (July 6, 2013) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (results here).
If anyone has earned it, it's Silva, according to White (via MMA Junkie):
"I'd do the rematch the next fight. Guy hasn't lost in the UFC ever, has beat everybody. He loses that fight, he's the guy for a rematch if he wants it."
When and where?
Well, that remains to be seen. Weidman was recently asking for a second showdown at Madison Square Garden in the heart of New York City, back when ZUFFA was poised to hold its 20th anniversary supershow in the "city that never sleeps."
Unfortunately, it slept on mixed martial arts (MMA) ... again.
That means no "Big Apple" bash for the "All American," born and raised in Long Island, or anyone else for that matter. At least not until 2014. But that's a discussion for a later date, as Silva must first cough up his strap this weekend in "Sin City" before anything can be set in stone.
And if he wins?
Expect another round of "superfight" talks if the Brazilian doesn't retire. Though you would think with a 10-fight contract you could burn at least two or three of them by tooling the rest of the 185-pound weight class, Silva, however, is already 38 years old, recently established his new MMA school and wants to try his hand at professional boxing.
