UFC 162: Chris Weidman threatens to f**k up Anderson Silva super fights with Jon Jones, GSP

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

UFC president Dana White told the assembled media following his UFC 158 press conference that Middleweight contender Chris Weidman, who challenges champ Anderson Silva at UFC 162 in July, intends to ruin all the UFC's 'super fight' plans for Silva to face fellow champs Jon Jones and Georges St. Pierre.

UFC president Dana White has made no secret of his big ambitions for the next year: a pair of "super fights" between Middleweight champ Anderson Silva and Welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre followed by Silva vs. Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones.

Of course many things have to go right for any of that to happen.

First off, Silva has to get past Middleweight contender Chris Weidman at UFC 162 this July in Las Vegas.

White talked to the media following UFC 158 and had the following statements from Weidman to relate:

"I talked to Chris Weidman myself, and he looked me right in the eye and said, 'I'm telling you, I apologize that I'm going to f**k up your super fights and be your next champion. But what I will do for you is I'll give him an immediate rematch in Madison Square Garden as soon as he loses.'

"If you take Anderson Silva out of the mix, the superfights are all gone," said White.

Just last month White was talking up his "super fight" plans, "GSP is going to defend his title against Nick Diaz, Anderson Silva will defend his title this summer, and before the end of this year, we will see a super fight with either GSP and Anderson Silva, or Anderson Silva and Jon Jones," White said this past month. "One of them is coming."
