Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman Results: 5 Reasons for a Rematch
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

On Saturday, July 6, 2013, Anderson Silva lost to Chris Weidman at UFC 162

We are now two days removed from the fight and the result still stands. It turns out Silva did indeed lose. It wasn't just a collective dream shared by the MMA community.

The fight between Weidman and Silva was an odd affair, Weidman hunting the champ, Silva confusing the match for a foray into Dancing With the Stars.

It sure would be nice to see the two of them go at it for a second time, only with both fighters attempting to engage, wouldn't it?

Well, as it happens, Dana White says that we will see it.
