Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has a chance to gain revenge over Chris Weidman as the duo will go head-to-head in a rematch on December 28 - and they're set to have a helping hand from Chuck Norris. 

Silva, 38, who previously lost the UFC middleweight championship for the first time in seven-years to Weidman, will have the opportunity to regain the prize after he accepted a re-match. 

The pair are set to headline the Ultimate Fighting Championship's year-ending UFC 168 fight card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. 

It could potentially be Silva's last fight if he loses again but he is seeking some guidance from two specialist martial artists, Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal.

Silva is still recovering from his 'traumatic' loss to Weidman, and he's turned to the two legends for support.

"I'll bring both Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal to my training camp," said Silva. 

The 38-year-old is well known for trolling MMA fans, so whether he brings the two fighters to his camp, we will have to wait and see. 

But the Brazilian fighter has previously worked with Seagal and seems to be a fan of unfamiliar training sessions, such as wrestling with Camaiura natives in the Amazon jungle.
