Dana White Addresses Anderson Silva’s Title Hopes

Dana White unhappy

Dana White

“I think that on Saturday night, we’ll see where he’s at. He’s an absolute professional, he’s done everything he needs to do to prepare for this fight. He’s back in shape, I think it’s just a mental thing, he has to get out there and see how he feels.”

“I don’t think he needs 3-4 fights to get back to the title. But if he feels that way, he’s the No. 1 ranked guy in the world, he can fight Jacare Souza, he can fight Lyoto Machida, Vitor Belfort, Luke Rockhold, Yoel Romero … He starts getting very limited when he doesn’t want to fight Brazilians or other guys. Three of the top guys in the world are Brazilian. Anderson always has some crazy things to say before the fight.”

UFC President Dana White took to FOX Sports 1 to discuss the title shot potential of Anderson Silva, who headlines UFC 183 this Saturday.
