Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman and Georges St-PierreDENVER — UFC president Dana White, following the UFC 150 post-fight press conference, informed reporters that middleweight champion Anderson Silva has no plans to return to the Octagon before the end of the year.

Chris Weidman, who is coming off of impressive victories over Mark Munoz and Demian Maia, has racked up an impressive 9-0 record. He’s been waiting patiently in the wings while hearing from Silva’s management that they don’t want a fight with Weidman, they’d rather push for a Georges St-Pierre super fight.

White says he considers Weidman the No. 1 contender, but admitted he likes the prospect of a bout between Silva and GSP in Dallas.
