DALLAS – While UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has insisted he's currently ready to fight on a moment's notice, UFC president Dana White told a different story at today's UFC 103 pre-fight press conference.
White said "The Spider" is set to have bone spurs removed from his elbow, and while the procedure is routine, Silva will still need time to recover.
"Contrary to whatever the hell [Silva] is saying, he's not 200 percent healthy," White said. "He's having some bone spurs removed from his elbow, which is a simple little procedure that happens, but you've got to have recovery time."Link
