Thread: Anderson Silva’s Next Fight Will Not Be in Brazil, Weidman likely opponent

    Anderson Silva's Next Fight Will Not Be in Brazil | MMAWeekly.com



    UFC middleweight titleholder and top pound-for-pound fighter in the world Anderson “The Spider” Silva is expected to return to action this summer, but the Brazilian star’s next bout won’t be in his home country.

    During the UFC 156 post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White said Chris Weidman is likely a lock to face Anderson Silva next.

    “We’re thinking about summer. It looks like Weidman as long as Weidman is healthy. That’s probably the fight we’ll make,” said White following UFC 156.
    Prior to the event, White revealed that Silva’s next bout will not take place in Brazil.

    “That fight won’t be in Brazil. If Weidman, and him fight, it won’t be in Brazil,” he declared.
    Brazil is an enormous market for mixed martial arts. White recently stated that The Ultimate Fighter Brazil draws NFL-type numbers there, regularly attracting 65 million viewers.

    It would be ideal for Silva’s next fight to be in Brazil, but the timing of his return conflicts with UFC scheduling.

    “We already have our schedule and it’s not scheduled (to return to Brazil),” said White. “It won’t happen in Brazil.”
    The second season of TUF Brazil will begin airing soon with coaches Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum expected to fight in Brazil some time in June, but a marquee event the level of which Anderson Silva would headline doesn’t appear to be on the docket anytime soon.
