Dana just announced it at the Rio presser and ran a promo reel. Their first fight was in Brazil...now the rematch will be as well.

Interesting. Will they be fighting each other, too?

Yep, I was just waiting for confirmation, which they have now stated they will.

This has to be a first. A fighter is already booked for 2 fights?

That's why I was waiting for a confirmation. I assumed they'd fight, but Vitor is sitting there talking about his Rio fight...kinda strange. Vitor won't be fighting Anderson again anytime soon, so I guess the result of his fight against Johnson doesn't really impact his next opponent too much.

wow if these two fight I'm expecting Wanderlei to get knocked out in a really ugly way, like stone cold KO with medics waking him up while Vitor is still talking to Rogan.

Yeah, that's kind of my thought too. Still, I can't help but hope that he scores a huge KO. I like both guys a lot, but Wandy is Wandy and the only time I ever cheered against him was when he fought CC...and sometimes during the Chuck fight(I didn't know who to cheer for).

Didn't their last fight end in like 44 seconds with Vitor winning?

Yeah, with one of the most ridiculous KO's ever caught on film.

This is pretty great. Belfort will hurt him though.

What kind of match up is this? I guess dana wants to make sure Silva gets the message to retire...

The kind that will draw the attention of fans in Brazil. I wouldn't look to rationalize it any further than that...it's quite the mismatch IMO.
