Dana White is going to reveal the next opponent for Anderson “The Spider” Silva, according to statements he made to Ariel Helwani in an interview recently posted at mmafighting.com. “I am very excited about the 185lb division, it’s all I’ve been talking about for the last four days,” said Dana. Since Anderson Silva finished Chael Sonnen at UFC 148, everyone and their mother has been throwing their hat in the ring for dibs at the next shot at the pound for pound badest dude on the planet. Chris Weidman was saying the UFC wanted to give him the next shot but Silva’s camp was undecided, among other rumors on who would be the next man to face Silva. “It’s all bullshit. Everything you are hearing is absolute bullshit,” said Dana.
Luckily for the fans, there will be more to watch for than knockouts and submissions on Saturday night.“It’s never been more exciting and I’ll let the cat out of the bag on Saturday on what we’re gonna do,” said Dana. I think it’s safe to say that the UFC is waiting to see if Hector “Lightning” Lombard can finish off Tim Boetsch. “Whoever wins on Saturday, I’ll have answers for you guys Saturday night at the press conference,” said Dana.
