Apparently some newspaper called Veja has been cited as a source claiming that Anderson wants a rematch with Weidman, however, some brazilian redditer wrote this:
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. Before you hype on this train, bare in mind that Lauro Jardim is the editor of one of the most famous magazines in Brazil. Veja.
Veja is very famous for lying most of the time to favour their political side. EVERYONE in Brazil knows not to believe 100% of the **** that they post. Google 'Veja' and 'Veja Mente' (veja lies) you will see plenty of blogs and people talking about how this magazine twist the facts to their favour and invent a lot of ****. Biased, bought out press.
He still keeps a column where he talks about some backstage stuff from polytics, sports, TV, etc. Probably his reporters get some information from somewhere, tell him and he posts it on his column without checking them just to get people to read and talk about his magazine. Just like the whole world is doing it right now.
He also has no connections and does not follow MMA. And the last place Anderson would tell something like that would be in Veja. I'm pretty sure even Anderson hasn't made up his mind about this yet.
I've lost my faith in the man for many many years. A lot of the ******** he writes never happens BUT I've personally known stuff he wrote that to be 100% lie. He claimed some stuff from my soccer club during 2 months and meanwhile I had direct contact with the president of the club and he talked to me in person that he had no idea how the guy invented so many wrong and totally ridiculous stuff. Don't have to tell you that every single line he wrote about it never happened at all. Every damn weak he gives some insiders breaking news and 80-90% never come true.
It could be truth? YEAH. It is? Probably NOT. His accuracy record is horrible.
I'm not telling this won't happen. I'm just saying this source, probably knows as much as all of us and is guessing ONE MORE TIME.
Lauro Jardim and Veja are not credible sources.
Who knows what to believe here? I wouldn't be surprised if Anderson does want the rematch, however, I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. As said, I wouldn't mind seeing Vitor (with or without TRT) fighting for the belt.
