    I would hope so. It should be the Champ dictating when he will fight again, not the challenger. There's no reason for it to be in February - it's not like a serious injury emerged for either fighter from that fight. If all of this is because Silva is targeting Jone Jr., then Weidman should absolutely fight someone else in the interim if he wants to.

    Yet Weidman has said that he does not want to.

    Weidman until he defeats Silva a 2nd time and even than have a hard time getting full credit for what he accomplished. So I can see him wanting and waiting on Silva, but in my eyes he has no right as the challenger to pick the date when no other issues are stopping it.
