February 3, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Dana White spoke last night at the post-UFC 156 press conference about Chris Weidman’s desire to fight Anderson Silva and more. Check out the highlights:

On whether Weidman will be Silva’s next opponent: “I’d have to say yes. Going into this fight [Rashad Evans vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira], we wanted to wait. We wanted to see what happened. I liked Weidman for this fight, anyway, so yeah.”

On when the fight may happen: “We’ve got to make the fight. We’ve got to make sure Weidman is alright. The later the better for Weidman though. We’re thinking about the summer. It looks like Weidman. As long as Weidman’s healthy that’s probably the fight we’ll make.”
