Anderson Silva Not Expected To Return Until 2013 | UFC NEWS

“We haven’t done anything yet. Anderson said he wants to take some time off until after the end of this year, [then] we’ll start talking to him. [Chris Weidman] is in a great spot. The kid looked fantastic, demolished the number three guy. Demolished in spectacular fashion. He’s got the right to call out whoever he wants [but] he’s gonna have to wait, or fight, because Anderson’s gonna fight after the end of the year.”

UFC president Dana White announced during last weekends media event that his middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, will not be returning to Mixed Martial Arts action until 2013. This bit of news leaves potential title challenger Chris Weidman without his shot at the strap until next year.
