Dana White: Anderson Silva Is More Dominate Than Mike Tyson | UFC NEWS
“We saw something tonight that you might not f**king ever see again as long as you live. What that guy does — like that spinning back kick where he steps to the side and then steps back — and he just kind of laid in there, took some shots, let him hit him, he was moving his head and then playing with him. And then, the minute he said, ‘I’m done,’ it was done. It’s just unbelievable — nobody does that. Nobody. Nobody in this sport is able to do that. That’s why when I get these guys sometimes who say, ‘I don’t know, Anderson Silva might not be the best …’ Are you out of your fucking mind? Nobody can do what this guy can fucking do. He’s the greatest of all time. And I think he’s the greatest in any combat sport. I’m a huge Mike Tyson fan, and in Tyson’s heyday when he was executing people, and you were just wondering how long it was going to be before he knocked someone out — he had that power and mean-ness that people were afraid of. Anderson Silva just does amazing things that nobody else can do…. I’m telling you right now: Watch every fight that he has, enjoy every moment that he’s here because when he’s gone you’re going to fucking regret it. You’re going to wish you watched more. It’s like [Michael] Jordan — even the games he played that didn’t mean a lot — he still did a lot of great shit. Anderson Silva is the guy who you want to watch when he’s fighting because you’re going to see some shit you’ve never seen before in your life.”
UFC president Dana White has nothing but kind words for his middleweight champion and Brazilian superstar, Anderson Silva.
