Middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva claims he doesn't even have Dana White's digits, let alone the desire to lobby for a fight with Jon Jones.

During a media teleconference today in support of UFC 162, Silva denied that he called the UFC president post-UFC 159 to request his next opponent, which White then hinted to be the light-heavy champ.

"I think everyone already knows that I didn't call Dana," Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) said. "I don't even have his phone number personally."

That's news to White, who today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Silva did call him following the April 27 event in Newark, N.J.

"I don't know why he loves to f--- with the media," said White. "Ask (Anthony) Pettis if he called me that night (after UFC 156). Jones said he didn't tell me he wanted to HURT Chael (Sonnen), but he did. I think the guys don't like that I tell the media everything. Roy Nelson and his wife don't like it either."

Ah man, I really hope that he did call out Jones...I have been begging for the fight for well over a year now!

I prefer no bad blood over the BS Dana tries to throw to the media. How many times did JDS end up telling the media his fight with Mir wasnt about "revenge" for Big Nog?
