Dana White: People Don’t Grasp How Good Anderson Silva Really Is | UFC NEWS


“Anderson Silva is so far the best fighter in the world, (expletive) pound-for-pound, they ought to make a whole other list for him. I don’t know what you call it, but he should be on that list. That’s how good this guy is. This guy is 38 years old and still performing at the level. Bonnar went the distance with Jon Jones and he said to me after his fight with Anderson Silva, he was in total shock. Not to mention the fact that we find out he was on steroids. He’s on steroids. He’s already the bigger, stronger guy. Anderson Silva has 36 days to prepare for that fight. He (expletive) annihilated him. So after the fight, he says to me, ‘That guy lives in the Matrix. Nobody’s ever done that to me in my life. I felt like I never fought a day in my life when I went in there with this guy.”

“When has Anderson Silva never stepped up to the plate and done what we asked him or needed him to do? Even fighting at 205 on a month’s notice. That’s how good Anderson Silva is. I feel like the media and the fans don’t grasp it, don’t get it as much as I do.”

– UFC president Dana White discussed the dominance of his middleweight champion Anderson Silva during last week’s media event.

  1. Big Show says:

    I agree, i don´t understand that people…

  2. Curtis says:

    Ummm. Did we forget about the two asians that whooped his butt…? I’m just saying…

    • bandelero says:

      that was like 8 years ago =/

    • Al says:

      There’s only two people that dominated Anderson Silva, one beat him the other didn’t. Chael Sonnen (first fight) didn’t win. Daijyu Takase won.

    • Some Guy says:

      Yeah, beat him with a flying heel hook that not even Bruce Lee himself would have seen coming.. Not to mention that was 8 years ago. Other than that he’s another loss in pride (8 years ago) and a DQ loss to Yushin Okami many years ago..

      Did anyone say Anderson was undefeated? No! But he’s won all of his fights since 2006, and has been the champion since then.

    • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

      I don’t think you fully understand the meaning of whooping someone’s butt.

      That flying heel hook was a fluke, Takase can try that a thousand times more and won’t succeed at it. And Silva was beating up Okami before he got DQ’d for an illegal upkick. His foot grazed Okami’s head and Okami pretended to be hurt by it. I don’t know if you saw what he did to Okami in their second fight?

      • Please stop talking says:

        You haven’t even seen the fight where Silva lost via flying heel hook. number 1, fluke? Yah, it wasn’t like his opponent wasn’t kicking his legs and tenderizing it the entire fight right? hahah and 2, RYO CHONAN got him with that hook and NOT Takase you dumbass. You’re obviously a retard to talk shit about a fight and call it a “fluke” when the move was not only worked on but you didn’t even know the fighter who pulled it off. And he’s lost 3 times, if you include Okami. Durrrr. Silva is number 1, but you really shouldn’t talk unless you know wtf you’re talking about. You probably think Silva beating Chael was a fluke Lol
