Anderson Silva might get a rematch with Michael Bisping very soon

Michael Bisping made history when he beat Anderson Silva at UFC London.

The British veteran won an explosive five-round war against the man widely considered to be the greatest UFC champion of all time.

The 36-year-old overcame a huge flying knee and a front kick to the face to beat The Spider in a 48-47 judges' decision.

The scorecards and stats showed Bisping was a clear winner in the fight - but Silva branded the decision in Bisping's back yard "total corruption".

But Silva's manager Ed Soares reckons there could be a rematch between the pair after very soon after one of the most entertaining fights in recent times.

He said: "Michael Bisping did show a lot of heart. Hats off to him. I don't agree with the decision but tell me what you think of this solution. Rematch in Brazil, if Anderson Silva (wins) we have the trilogy in Vegas?"

Interestingly it could be sooner than fans think. May 14 is the date pencilled in for the UFC to return to Silva's native Brazil.

MMA Fighting report that rumours are the event could take place in a football stadium in Curitiba, Brazil - the city where Silva last competed 14 years ago.
