They originally battled at UFC 126 for the UFC middleweight title- with Silva winning by first round KO to retain his title.  Silva would hold the belt for over two more years.

 

Since them Vitor has been on a tear, finishing every win including against Dan Henderson, Rumble Johnson, Luke Rockhold and Michael BIsping. In fact Vitors only losses in nearly a decade have been title fights against Weidman, Silva and JOnes.

 

The he fight would likely headline a PPV with the winner being in title contention and the loser being knocked back down.
