04:17 PM ET 09.24 | Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will have an opportunity to get his title back on Dec. 28, when he faces off against the current champ Chris Weidman in the main event of UFC 168. Silva lost his title to Weidman thanks to a brutal knockout, but the former pound-for-pound king does not foresee things going down the same way during the rematch. In fact, Silva promises to return the favor to Weidman and deliver a knockout of his own.

"Silva lost his title to Weidman thanks to a brutal knockout..."

To be more precise...

"Silva lost his title because he was acting like a **** in the ring again - and it finally caught up to him..."

I don't know about that. The win might have given an already worthy challenger the piece of mind that he *CAN* win (as well as some momentum) going into this rematch.

Gotta agree. Love Weidman's skill set, but we are talking about the greatest ever.

If he actually goes in focused and angry - with no showboating, look out. He just has too many strengths to deal with.
