If a rematch between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman comes to fruition, it is the UFC’s opinion that it will be the biggest fight in the promotions history.
With such a major event, it should come as no surprise that the UFC boss is looking for a large venue to host the middleweight title clash.
The New York Post has the scoop:
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.
Doing it on Super Bowl weekend – the UFC has a show in New Jersey the night before the game at MetLife Stadium – has been ruled out, because he believes a fight of that magnitude should stand on its own. White says it could still happen this year, though it is unlikely with an already packed slate of events on the UFC’s calendar through December.
