Minutes after former middleweight king Anderson Silva was put to sleep by Chris Weidman at UFC 162, company president Dana White (pictured) was asked to respond to countless conspiracy theorists who suggested the fight was fixed. White quickly rebuffed the accusation, calling anyone who thought Silva and the UFC rigged the scrap “idiots.” Well, having a few keyboard warriors blast their theories on Twitter is one thing, but having professional journalists do it is another. Speaking of getting blasted, White went off on Sports Illustrated after their “SINow” panel suggested the most decorated champion in UFC history took a dive against Weidman. “It wouldn’t surprise me if it was happening in this UFC case,” said Chris Mannix. “I mean, I just think it does happen a lot of times.” Obviously, White was none too pleased after catching wind of what was said on the Internet show. On Friday, he appeared as a guest on “SINow” to confront host Maggie Gray about their controversial segment. Please click the media player below to watch White’s rant: Silva is set to rematch Weidman at UFC 168 on December 28 in Las Vegas. The bout marks the most anticipated sequel in MMA history.
