dana's talkin through his ass. no matter how bad in his eyes he thinks a fighter is fighting, he isn't goin to just let loose the pound for pound best fighter in the world at this present time and of possibly all time.The fact is silva is a counter striker who picks off his opponents for fun. He could attack and beat most of them easily as well but he prefers to see the openings and pick off his opponent that way. What Dana is asking of him is like asking lesnar not to use his wrestling skills against his opponents. He should keep his mouth shut and just focus on putting someone in the cage who can bring it to silva
I agree that instead of threating Silva Dana has to find a proper opponent for him.
Anyone can be cut it just depends on their actions. No he wont Silva if he loses. But he would if Silva refused to fight, Hit chael long after the bell, spit in the ref face anything that dosnt belong in the octagon. If someone does something like that you can't keep them no matter what.
Silva goes to Strikeforce and fights Cung Le, WITH Machida as ref ;)
I really didn't think what Silva did was that horrible.
So Dana has stated that Pound 4 pound list are bogus, but then he calls A. Silva the best p4p? this guy is a two face doble moral clown.
No, he mainly calls sherdog and other p4p lists bogus, but he has his own opinion to a p4p list just like everyone does, but i do disagree when he says fedor is not on that list. Its arguable whether he's #1 especially with his loss to Werdum, but for me it has always been A.Silva #1, Fedor #2 and GSP #3, but like I said that is my own opinion.
He actually meant your list was bogus. You know.... since your name is.... ok I'm sorry that was a dumb joke.
actually a did laugh bigblackjap
Hahaha wait.... a what?
love it, "Anderson is the best p4p fighter, hasn't lost in 3 years and i'm going to cut him? No."
Dana is just talkn sh*t, hes not that dumb to cut a.silva.
wow we all feel better now ( * ) ( * )
I don't think so. DW needs him big time. Funny it happens. Silva goes to SF and stays there to fight Hendo.
...so do I Danna.
Win or lose for The Spider, Sonnen is going to bring it; there will be no repeat of his last fight (with Maia).
And by Anderson's protracted "stare-down", dare we think that Sonnen has actually gotten under The Spider's" skin? I do believe that he has actually done it. You could almost see the steam coming off of Silva.
For all those that think Sonnen is a joke, doesn't deserve a shot...whatever...I think you're gong to be shocked at how hard fought and entertaining this fight is going to be. This is going to be a tough fight for him, finally - thank God.
should be a short fight. Sonnen is the perfect opponent for Silva, someone who is going to attack him relentlessly. His last few opponents have stood off him for fear of getting KOed very early and turned the fights into a drab affair but i agree Sonnen will launch at him from the go and is capable of taking punishment while trying to take him down but as tough as he is he'll do well to go beyond the 2nd round
he wont cut him white. if he gets cutted mousasi vs silva could be good fight
but that never happens
Sonnen does not realize that Silva is in a totally different level.
Dana's not stupid enough to cut Anderson & then watch him get signed by a rival fight company & see them blow up.
Dana White will think of some clever bullshit to feed the public as to why he didn't cut the spider if he performs like the previous fight. Dana may be a bitch about things, but he isn't stupid. He'll never cut one of the greatest strikers to ever grace the sport.
I agree. His fighting skills are undeniable. It would be a shame if he fought anywhere else. I wonder if he did though, would everyone say about middleweights "If they want to test themselves against the best they need to go fight Anderson in SF or whatever." That would be funny.
i said it before ill say it agian lol Silva can take a dump in the center of the octagon and still not be cut. it is completely ridiculous to think otherwise lol hes considered the best p4p fighter on earth and people think dana would let him go..
dana even used the michael jordan analogy......
Yea we all know he was full of shit saying he'd cut anderson...it'd be just like jordan getting cut.
And stop pretending it wasnt about a KO, he's just mad he told anderson to jump and he stood still and laughed.
i hope dana white does cut silva, i am a big UFC fan but i really am getting sick of dana white he is becoming this vince mcmahon type character and i really am starting to get turned off the UFC because of it. i think Silva has been a great champion he never talks shit he is very humble, and he has one night where dana white doesnt like his behavior and he wants to cut him? dana white needs to get over himself and take a step back out of the public eye and focus on putting on more events and growing the company
