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.

    I like Hendo don’t get me wrong but he has not looked nearly as good as Vitor has….He also uses the TRT so all the haters can shove that too! This is bullshit!!!! On top of that Hendo basically told the UFC to go fuck themselves when he went to strikeforce last time…This is more DW bullshit. Vitor desEreves the shot. I guess now we are going to tell all the fighters who get beat by some guy “well who lost the worst way” BULLSHIT!!!

  3. KIDD433 says:

    This is some BS. Especially since Vitor should already be fighting Silva now instead of Weidman. Hendo makes absolutely no FKN sense whatsoever. Dana’s just trolling

    dan henderson would get knocked out

  5. KIDD433 says:

    Cain and Dos Santos first title fight= Dos Santos KTFO Cain in the first round.Cain wins 1 fight after via TKO, and gets rematch.
    Cain and Dos Santos second title fight=Cain beats the shit out of Dos Santos for 5 whole rounds.Dos Santos wins one fight via KO and gets rematch.
    So makes no sense at all why Vitor shouldn’t get a rematch.Since his fight with Silva he’s had four wins, All finishes.Akyiyama,Rumble,Bisping,Rockhold.Some BS

    • Ray Nearhood says:

      There is a difference, and you highlighted it at the beginning of your comment – Junior KOed Cain before losing to Cain. The rematch is a rubber match between the current and former champ.

      Vitor doesn’t have a KO or decision win over Silva. It isn’t a rubber match.

      However, his impressive win record should get Belfort another shot at the title. He has earned it, I think.

  6. Ray Nearhood says:

    How would the UFC promote this?

    The only man that won a round against Anderson Silva before Chael Sonnen won four rounds against Anderson Silva is back – despite lackluster losses in his last two fights – is BACK – to try again…”

    ::Cut to Hendo::

    “I really think I can do it this time. I’m going to eat Anderson alive…. for at least two rounds. Then who knows what will happen? I knocked out Fedor!”

    • GOT RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Sonnen was ROIDED UP out of his fricken gord. NOONE even counts those 4 lay n pray rounds as crap. We all saw what a healthy and ONLY partially JUICED Sonnen was able to do in the second fight.

      Sonnen is a disgrace to all MMA period. 3 losses to Jeremy Horm tells the story of how overrated Sonnen really is

  7. JoeSway says:

    Seriously, all the Sonnen hate is pretty out of hand. He overturned a 1 year suspension to 6 months; which means that at some point errors where filed by both parties. Secondly, to call someone a disgrace to a sport that is ONLY 20 years old is pretty retarded. For example in what context are you using the term “disgraceful.” Let me guess 1.Popped elevated levels of testosterone 2. Insurance fraud 3. Trolls to get PPV buys

    1. (Cited and repeated no need to beat a dead horse)
    2. When White Collar crime goes wrong…
    3. I admire him for this, well spoken and articulate.
    (Sure as hell beats the standard response, ” He’s never faced an opponent like, me.” )

    But I digress, back to Vitor; give him a shot. Technically, he did emphatically beat all the dudes that were in line for a title shot, he’s earned it. On side note if anyone has access to the Phenom please pass on this message:

    Vitor, we get it you love Jesus and for your beloved buddy please shave that rat tail-I don’t whether I’m watching a UFC event or MTV Grind- seriously you look like Rico Suave bombarded by Gamma Rays.

    I feel bad for everyone at 85. Between Dana and Anderson and all their money schemes funkin all these guys out their prime. Roy Jones Jr huh? Only Anderson fans would funk the sport up by supporting some bullshit like this. Anderson is a tweener of 85 and 05. Quit picking on little Goerges and challenge for the 05 strap you puss.

    • kenny powers says:

      Anderson challenged Roy Jones the first time in 2008, Dana said no, look it up. Anderson been runnin MW since 06, and aside from Bones Jones, he would murder everyone at LH anyway so there’s no point in moving up unless it’s a superfight.
