No, I don't mean Silva and GSP together and I'll support that with words from the horses mouth.
"He won the fight and he did what he had to do, so I give him that," White said Monday. "The guy is so talented, it's scary. Guys can't do anything against him. People go to leg kick him and he stops the kicks with his feet. Instead of checking the kicks, he sticks his foot out and stops the kick with his foot. It's like stuff from "The Matrix." The guy is incredible.
"My issue is, why not finish him? Where is the killer instinct? We haven't seen that for a while? Why isn't he letting his hands and feet go? He got on the ground and was beating the [expletive] out of Thales, but then he stood up and backed off and made it look like Thales was doing something wrong."
So White suggested the only way Silva can get a challenge now is to fight an ELITE LHW. The question is who. It is already being speculated that it is none other then "Rampage" Jackson. I don't even believe that! The question then remains who is White referring to?
Then White went on a rant about Silva and GSP. Has he actually entertained that idea?
"I honestly think Anderson Silva needs to challenge himself a little more," White said. "Maybe we need to do another fight at 205 (pounds). Maybe we go to 205 (pounds) and do a fight [with] somebody who poses a serious threat to him."
While a light-heavyweight bout could be in Silva's immediate future, a mega-fight at 185 pounds may not be too far off especially if Toronto warms up to MMA regulation.
"I'm focused on Toronto now," White said. "I want to do a big event in Toronto. And who knows? Like I said, I don't like to look past guys. Everybody who fights in the UFC is tough. (But) if Georges St. Pierre could get through Thiago Alves, who knows? Maybe we do Anderson Silva and Georges St. Pierre in Toronto." "Do not overlook Thiago Alves," White said. "This guy is mean and nasty, and that's going to be a very, very hard fight for him. Georges St. Pierre can't start looking at Anderson Silva until he gets past Thiago Alves.
"Really, listen to me, guys. Alves is a very, very tough kid. Don't overlook him. I don't want to concentrate on Silva (vs.) St. Pierre until he can prove he can get by Alves."
White, speaking just an hour after Canadian fans filled Montreal's Bell Centre with "GSP! GSP" chants during the Silva vs. Leites fight, is well aware of the interest.
"I like the fight as much as anyone," he said.
Wow guys, this all came from Dana's mouth. Could you imagine that! I still think it is far fetched based on the lingering thought of Silva at 205. I can't wait to see him at 205!
