12:04 PM ET 07.14 | Anderson Silva said after the loss to Chris Weidman that he was done fighting for the title, that it was Weidman's time and he was just going to finish out the fights remaining on his contract. Fans clamored for a rematch and UFC President Dana White announced that there would be a rematch between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman in December. When Silva spoke about the rematch, he had a fire that fans have rarely seen. "Yeah guys, my fans, UFC and my fans [throughout] the world and in the United States, Dec. 28, I coming back to fight: Weidman and Anderson Silva. I back. Trust me, I back," the former champ said. The fight will headline UFC 168, with a co-feature of Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate.

If Silva would have taken the fight a bit more seriously.. we're not even talking about a rematch with Weidman.. we're talking match with GSP or Jones

After the fight when he was saying he's done fighting for titles that's exactly what I thought he was saying. That from now on he just wanted to fight certain guys and not worry about titles.
