Dana White talks UFC on FX 1, guarantees Anderson Silva will fight the winner of Sonnen vs. BispingPosted on January 21, 2012, 04:31 AM by Anton Gurevich
UFC President Dana White looked back at last night's fight card in Nashville, Tennessee, which was headlined by Jim Miller's impressive comeback against Melvin Guillard. White confirmed Miller is now back in the mix for a shot at the UFC Lightweight title, while Melvin Guillard will have to go back to the drawing board. White also spoke about Josh Neer's victory over "Bang" Ludwig, and Pay Barry's vicious KO of Christian Morecraft.
UFC will return next week with UFC on FOX 2, co-headlined by the #1 Middleweight Contender bout between Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping. Chael Sonnen declared during yesterday's conference call that Anderson Silva will refuse to fight the winner of his clash with Bisping, also revealing that the reigning UFC Middleweight champion turned down four offers for a rematch with the self-proclaimed linear champion.
White related to Sonnen's comments as "Chael being Chael", and guaranteed Mixed Martial Arts fans around the world that Anderson Silva will defend his title against this Saturday's co-main event winner, most likely in Brazil. White also added that if Rashad Evans is victorious and injury-free in his fight with Phil Davis, he will be the next in line for a shot at Jon Jones' 205 belt.
