White Ranks Hendo Above Belfort For Anderson Silva Rematch

“So when you go back to Anderson Silva, who is in the twilight of his career, and you say to a guy like Anderson, what about Vitor? ‘I annihilated Vitor. I got other fights that I wanna fight.’ You talk about his legacy and his this and his that. Those are tough fights to make. I’m not saying that Vitor couldn’t get the next shot, or couldn’t get a shot soon, but if you’re Anderson Silva… ‘I wanna fight (Georges St. Pierre) or Jon Jones or somebody different.’ You could make a better argument that Dan Henderson should get the next shot. He hasn’t looked impressive and he hasn’t won, but (Silva) didn’t beat him as bad as he did Vitor.”

Vitor Belfort has been clamoring for a rematch against Anderson Silva ever since he lost to him.

And even though “The Phenom” might be on an extreme and vicious run through the middleweight division, the UFC boss ranks Dan Henderson above him.
