Dana White: Chris Weidman Just Might Be Anderson Silva’s Next UFC Title Fight

Just two days after UFC president Dana White claimed they were working on something for Anderson Silva that didn’t involve Chris Weidman (Pictured), it appears “The All-American” just might be the middleweight king’s next potential victim – much to the dismay of Team Silva. “That fight’s closer and more possible than people think,” White told UFC Tonight of Silva...

Ken Flo Calls Out Anderson For Hand Picking Opponents

Kenny Florian is like most of us that just wants to see the best fights out there.  Cung Le and Luke Rockhold are not names that get the blood boiling as contenders for Silva’s belt.  With the 185lb division pretty much wiped, it may be time to get up and comer Weidman a shot.  Here’s what Florian had to say. “This is my problem.
