Dana Says Weidman #1 P4P Fighter With Belfort Win

It seems like just a few days ago the UFC boss was praising his bantamweight champion, Renan Barao. Dana even proclaimed him the pound-for-pound best fighter with a UFC 169 stoppage over Faber.

Now Dana White is using the same lines when talking about his undefeated middleweight champ, Chris Weidman.

Check it:

“[If Weidman beats Belfort] he’s the best. He’s No. 1. How is he not No. 1 pound-for-pound in the world if he beats Vitor Belfort? It’s impossible not to call him the No. 1 pound-for-pound guy. If [Weidman] beats Vitor, Barão’s [expletive] No. 2!”

    That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard Jones has more credibility for #1 p4p so dose Aldo Barao qnd Johnson

  2. mike says:

    Didnt he just say Barao will be number 1 p4p if he beat Faber lel

  3. Dean McGowan says:

    Vitor will pound Wiedman without TRT as skill and expierence win fights not testosterone , Victor will become the first UFC Champion to own Gold in 3 different weight divisions !

    Let’s see, a KO and TKO(leg f-ing breaking TKO) of the Goat!! So, logic suggests the he is the new Goat! Right?….Belfort will be sluggish with out his juice and if he can’t connect in the first or second, he’s toast. Weidman the GOAT killer = new GOAT, will annihilate Belfort the dinosaur.

      I like wrestling greatest sport on God’s green Earth. Which I say because I know you are just saying this because he wrestled. However you can not say just because you beat the goat you are the goat. He just won the title Jones has the longest string of title defenses in LHW history Aldo has defended his belt like 6 times and will add one more to the streak with Lamas. Johnson has been on a tear through his division these are the P4P best.

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        You make good points. If your definition of the P4P is longevity in UFC as a champ, then I agree with you. Jones and Aldo need to be up there. But if you don’t then, Weidman is the P4P and new GOAT because he destroyed the goat TWICE. Or you have to admit that perhaps Silva was not as good as his hype? Therefore, Weidman needs to beat better competition before he can be considered P4P GOAT!

          he got fucking lucky twice -.- he didn’t destroy shit. weidman is good, has potential, but those were not dominating victories at all..come on. just because you kill jessie james, does not make you jessie james. once he outdoes what anderson did in the UFC, THIS will make him the GOAT. Period, there is NO argument to that. It’s just fact..

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          Fucking lucky!!! are you insane??? He KO’d him silly the first fight and broke his f-ing leg the second time. That’s luck to you? Maybe Silva was just over-hyped his whole career? If you are George Foreman, HW champ of the world and some pip-squeak named Ali KO’s you then YES Ali is the HW Champ of the world AND the Better Fighter….

          Ur fuckin trippin. The first victory over Anderson was legit. He was playin and got caught with a big shot. The second fight was a fluke if I ever seen one. Thousands of fighters get leg kicks checked and don’t break the kickers leg. It was just one of those freak things that happens in combat sports. But to say Weidman intended to break Anderson’s leg is delusional. Weidman has only has 1 real and conclusive title defense and if he beats Belfort he will have 2. Brock Lesnar had more then one successful title defense but he wasn’t considered the GOAT. Ronda Rousey had more then 2 successful title defenses and all dominate. Is she the GOAT? Fuck no becuz it takes more then a few title defenses to b the greatest ever. U have to revolutionize the sport. Silva haters I understand that u r over the moon becuz Anderson lost the title and some of ur happier that her got hurt but please stop acting like Weidman is more then he is without seeing proof. Smfh. And u call Silva fans nut huggers. Get real.

        • Nick says:

          I see your point but the Silva he beat wasn’t IMO the Silva that won the title from Rich Franklin. Also his resume doesn’t compare to the other people I named.

        • EyeMurkk says:

          Yea but did he ko him in the clinch? No. Anderson recovered and broke his leg kicking Weidman. Weidman couldn’t finish the fight from top position and got busted up for trying…

  5. kodaDaCook says:

    Wiedman was destroying Silva before the leg snap almost ko’d him in the clinch so it wasn’t luck second Viror can not beat him he doesn’t have the skill set. Next jones is the P4P best and he beat Gustafson it was a close fight but jones won so quit hating the guy. So the list should be 1.Jones 2. Aldo 3. Wiedman 4.Johnson 5. Barao

    • Chris MF Chadd says:

      I agree. Rocking Anderson had nothing to do with the outcome of the fight so your statement is irrelevant kodaDaCook. Even if Anderson hadn’t broken his own leg just becuz Weidman rocked him don’t mean he would have won the fight. Any real UFC fan knows that.

  6. EyeMurkk says:

    Bulls**t… how would Weidman b considered #1? Just becuz he knocked out Anderson. The second fight I barely count as a victory. There r so many other fighters that should b placed before him… UFC is starting to piss me off. Whoever is making these kinds of decisions need to open their eyes man. Smh. Wack ass decision making.

  7. Chris MF Chadd says:

    That makes absolutely no sense at all Dana. Please do explain…

    cain velasquez.. that’s the guy.. c’mon
