Daily Dick-Tease: Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman is Apparently “In the Works” for July

(Anderson Silva and Dana White via Mommy, What Will I Look Like?) Whether he has truly earned it or not yet (which is a debate that we should just stop having from here on out, because honestly), Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva is a fight that MMA fans have been clamoring for ever since Weidman beat Mark Munoz into a living death at UFC on FUEL 4 last July. At first, Silva simply ignored our advice outright. Then, in one of the most brilliantly executed circle jerks in MMA history, Silva used the media-thwarting vessel known as Ed Soares to call out Michael Bisping, then Luke Rockhold (who was still a Strikeforce fighter at the time), and finally Cung Le. Silva’s media roundabout, budding movie career, and occasional trips to the light heavyweight division had fans questioning whether or not we’d ever see the middleweight champion return to the division he has dominated since 2006. So if you’re one for optimism, you’ll find comfort in the fact that multiple sources including Brazil’s Tatame are reporting that Silva vs. Weidman is in the works for a July event. Finally. However, if you’re like the rest of us, you’ll realize the futility of phrases like in the works or probably coming back to the UFC or will get the next title shot in regards to the UFC and just move along. Nothing to see here.
