i think not, Strikeforce didnt get anything from Fedor losing. They didnt get rematch ect......
UFC other hand got lot of things when Anderson did lose. Okey they lost "Superfight" thing but that was very so and so anyways. Anderson is now popular as ever, very long run made him superstar in Brazil and was one of the faces when UFC came to Brasil on long time, so i think he was face of new generation on UFC fans in Brazil, yes he losed but he was able to establish his position there, and now there is rematch.
Now Weidman is champ UFC has champ from USA who are quite good with media, hes From New York, and now he got tons of media time everywhere, Talk show, ect.... what again sell Sport and UFC. + There is this upset factor what he did to Anderson, more and more people get involved to MMA and then Weidman just say hey we got this rematch thing coming. Weidman can be Face of new generation of USA fans.
I mean there is lots of things How UFC benefit this situation so thats why people has motivation to thing conspiracy
