According to Dave Meltzer, the UFC is working on putting together what could be their biggest event in promotional history this fall in Dallas at Cowboys Stadium. The show would have two huge fights on top. Meltzer has the scoop:

Nothing was said as far as when or where the match will take place. There is an idea floating around to try and put on the biggest show in company history at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas this fall. Several things would have to fall into place for this to happen, the key being Anderson Silva retaining the middleweight title against Chris Weidman, and not being banged up in the process. In addition, Jon Jones would have to be recovered from his own toe injury, and UFC would have to work out a deal to get the two of them to fight. Each has his own reasons, but neither has exactly clamored to fight the other. Having all those things fall into place makes this very much a longshot of actually happening.

The idea would be to have Silva vs. Jon Jones and Velasquez vs. Dos Santos at the stadium, in October, at the same time as the state fair of Texas, perhaps on 10/12 or 10/19. That much is known to be at least something talked about. With Madison Square Garden seeming more and more unlikely for November, this show could be billed as UFC 20th anniversary show, with the idea of trying to repeat the success of UFC 100.

since they f'd up the Milwaukee card..i might just have to attempt this..and at Cowboy Stadium..where PacMan / Mayweather should have fought at..it would be a really smart move for Zuffa to make this move, imo..this rematch is pretty BIG..

I find it hard to believe that the most marketable fight in the world would be on the same card as the most marketable HW title fight. The UFC doesn't usually put two fights of this caliber together. Obviously, Cowboys Stadium and 20th anniversary are two circumstances that are different than the norm, maybe they want to put on the greatest fight card they ever have.
