    Default Report: Silva wants rematch Super Bowl weekend

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...-Bowl-weekend/

    Speaking with Joe Rogan immediately following his loss to Chris Weidman, Anderson Silva was adamant that he didn't want a rematch and didn't want to fight for the title anymore. However a report today is that Silva has already changed his mind and is hoping to fight Chris Weidman again in February for the UFC's big Super Bowl weekend card:

    According to Lauro Jardim (@radaronline), from @Veja, sources close to Anderson Silva revealed he wants a rematch with Weidman on Feb. 2014

    read official Twitter...

    Now the usual disclaimer. Guillerme Cruz is a respected in journalist in Brazil, however Twitter isn't always the most accurate source of information. However, most fans and members of the media believe that is likley that after thinking it over Silva would want a rematch to avenge the worse loss of his career.


    * I think if Weidman wants to defend the belt before Feb 2014, he should have that option. No reason Weidman should be forced to sit out for the next 7 months to wait for a rematch with Anderson.


    Silva opens as favorite in potential rematch with Weidman

    Two separate lines saw it that way. Sportsbook.com made Silva a -175 favorite (he's already been bet up to -185), while 5Dimes.eu listed the Brazilian at -140.

    Weidman is a +155 and +100 underdog on the sites, respectively.

    Those numbers are among the closest odds in Silva's UFC career; when he fought Dan Henderson in 2008, he closed at -140.
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    In another article, Weidman stated that he prefers the Superbowl card as he has some injuries he wants to rehab as well as spend time with his family...

    One could also assume that he needs sometime to spend that championship money. =)

    I believe Dana said something about possibly wanting to do it on Super Bowl weekend as well, but said he was just pulling off the top of his head; during the "media scrum".

    Odds are pretty close, a little closer than their first fight.. If Anderson manages to lose the rematch to Weidman, where does that leave him in the MW div?

    Barring some kind of craziness in other fights, I don't see how that could move him anything below #2 (with Weidman #1). It's still just a loss to the same guy.

    That said, I do think if he loses twice that he'll retire.
