Dana White did an interview with MMA Fighting today in Rio while doing the rounds to promote UFC 134, and was asked about the rumor that Anderson Silva might face Dan Henderson in the main event of the first UFC on Fox show on November 12th. White immediately shot the rumor down. Here's what he had to say (transcribed by MMA Mania):

"It's not true. I saw that rumor too, yesterday I was cruising around on the Internet and saw that, it's not true. If he goes out and wins in 13 seconds, he's not considered for the FOX show. I'm working on (the main event for that show) right now. I can't (talk about it), you know me, I have to get the deal done and I have to know that both guys are going to accept the fight. Plus, saying that, even though I say that (Silva) won't fight on the FOX card, I'm watching what happens this weekend before I decide who's going to fight on FOX."

I think Dana probably saw a video of Okami training with Sonnen.

That explains the sudden change of heart.

I knew it wouldn't happen, I said this in another thread.

Silva is fighting this weekened, and then would basically have to go right back to training for a Nov.12 fight.

Still have to get Hendo signed to the UFC, which I'm might not be easy.



However, I do like that the UFC is trying to do "big fights" for these two FOX broadcasted fights.


I would also probably rule out Lesnar, b/c isn't he just suppose to get back to training in Sept.? Might be too soon for him. But Idk.

Plus I think they would be crazy, to not have Lesnar/Mir 3 on ppv

Chael is training him how to juice up to 4 times the maximum testosterone limit for humans or how to wrestle him while getting rocked multiple times and not doing enough to finish while having the strength and conditioning of 4 men?

I know Hendo tweeting something about making alot of money, and smiley faces.

So here's to hoping for the winner of Shogun/Griffin v. Hendo

I think he's probably waiting to see who the winner is of Shogun vs Griffin...if Forrest wins, then maybe we'd see him against Lyoto Machida...if Shogun wins...I think that would change things. Maybe Dan vs Lyoto should that happen...or Dan vs Griffin could work as well.
