Following his UFC 162 title loss, former middleweight champion Anderson Silva declared that he wasn’t interested in fighting for a title again. However UFC President Dana White made it clear that the rematch would happen and that it could happen as early as the year end card in December.
On Wednesday, Bodog.ca dropped the odds on the proposed rematch and even though “The Spider” lost at UFC 162 he has once again opened as the favorite.
Early odds have Silva has a slight favorite at -180, with Weidman coming in not too far behind at +150.
These are by far the closest odds that we have seen for a Silva fight.
The former champ is 16-1 inside the UFC and 33-5 overall. He defended the middleweight title a record 11 times prior to losing against Weidman this past weekend.
