Rousey vs. Tate back to 12/28 in Las Vegas

Dana White told Lance Pugmire in an article in the Los Angeles Times that he did consider moving Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman II to the 12/28 show in Las Vegas, and Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate to 2/1 in Newark, but that's not happening.

He confirmed Rousey vs. Tate for 12/28.  At this point there is no date for Silva vs. Weidman.  White called the latter rematch "the biggest fight in UFC history," and indicated having it the night before the Super Bowl may not be the best time for it.
