Dana White at UFC 144Anderson Silva losing to Chris Weidman toppled a lot of dominoes. Not only did Silva lose his UFC middleweight championship and take a hit to his stake as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, his loss sent UFC president Dana White’s hopes for a superfight into a tailspin.

White isn’t exactly crying in his beer over the change in plans. He wanted to put on a superfight between Silva and light heavyweight champion Jon Jones or Silva and welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, but he also believes a rematch between Silva and Weidman will be a monumental bout.

“Silva vs. Weidman 2 is (expletive) massive,” White told MMAWeekly.com’s Ryan McKinnell. “It’s not just huge here (in the U.S.), it’s huge all over the world. All the places that we do big numbers, it’s a massive fight. But on the flipside, Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva was a massive, massive fight too.”
