Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will get another chance to fight Chris Weidman.

UFC president Dana White made the announcement on Saturday on ESPN's SportsCenter.

"Ever since the fight got over, I don't know if there's ever been any more hype, ever, in UFC history after a fight," White told ESPN. "Everybody has been wondering if there will be a rematch. I've been working on it since Thursday.

"Dec. 28 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand, Anderson Silva will fight Chris Weidman in the rematch. The co-main event will be Ronda Rousey versus Miesha Tate."

Silva lost his title fight to Weidman on July 6 when he was knocked out in the second round.

The 38-year-old Silva entered that fight on a 16-match win streak in the UFC and had defended the middleweight title a UFC-record 10 consecutive times.
