If the stars align…

UFC President Dana White announced the news during a stint on FOX Sports 1, last night. (Replay)

“Diaz and Anderson Silva are fighting, and obviously if Anderson Silva wins that fight, and whether Vitor or Weidman win, then you have Anderson Silva versus either one of those guys,” White said.

Anderson Silva faces Nick Diaz on pay-per-view, January 31, in the UFC 182 main event.
