Anderson Silva says he’s back

Maggie Hendricks

The Anderson Silva-Chris Weidman rematch is on. As mentioned on Cagewriter Saturday, the pair who fought just last week will rematch on Dec. 28. Silva will be in a new position -- fighting as the challenger instead of the champion. Still, he wanted to make one thing clear: he's back.

Watching what kind of Silva comes back to fight Weidman will be one of the most interesting stories in not just MMA, but in sports. The man's last loss was in the last decade, and what worked for him so many times before didn't against Weidman. UFC 168 cannot come quickly enough.
