UFC President Dana White promised the world that new UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman (10-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) and former kingpin Anderson Silva (33-5 MMA, 16-1 UFC) would meet again. Now it's official.

The UFC boss today revealed on ESPN's SportsCenter that both Weidman and Silva have agreed to meet on Dec. 28 in the headlining bout of a previously announced UFC 168 event, which takes place at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena. The night's main card, including the Weidman vs. Silva rematch, airs on pay-per-view. White further confirmed that bout agreements have already been signed.

White previously announced UFC 168 would see women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) face former Strikeforce title holder Miesha Tate (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) in the evening's main event. However, that fight between former Strikeforce champs and opposing "The Ultimate Fighter 18" coaches will instead serve as the co-main event of what starts out as a star-studded affair.

Already has the potential to be one of the biggest NYE cards ever. Let's get some great undercard action, too.

looks like the cat is out of the bag. heheheh

Awesome way to end the year, Weidman too fast to strong to confident to lose again.

One of the most underrated aspects of the first fight was Weidman's reflexes.imo

i know it is apart of his game but i don't wanna see anther dance off from anderson. hopefully he comes out like the 2nd chael fight so we get to see an actually fight. with anderson finally losing the wow factor of the lose isn't there anymore so i'd actually like to see a fight now.
