“Everybody keeps asking me if those guys are done, if one of them is getting cut or loser leaves or whatever,” said White. “What if the fight is a Mark Hunt vs. Bigfoot Silva fight? I’ll keep them both. They need to perform on Saturday night.”

Tonight on the UFC 169 pay-per-view card Frank Mir and Alistair Overeem square off in a fight many believe will send the loser packing.

Both men have a string of losses behind them and both need a win.

Dana White addressed the situation during this week’s media event and he isn’t saying he’s going to release the loser, but he isn’t saying they’re safe either.

Should the loser of this fight leave town?
