Too bad UFC President Dana White doesn't exactly feel the same was as "The Spider."

Hey Anderson, Vitor wasn't Champion fot a long time. He Beat Randy by cut in January 04 and lost it in August of the same year to Randy. No defenses.

In the article Anderson states Vitor was a UFC champion for a long time. And he was just saying that isn't really true.

My guess is this, before Saturday he was Ranked #2 for the middleweight division, so I'm guessing that after the Silva vs. Weidman rematch he will be next in line, so thanks Spider or should I call you Captain OBVIOUS!

My only thought is that he might be using the word "champ" in the looser sense of the word. Like, "you're a champion in my book."

I'm not sure how common that is in Portuguese but I know its common in Spanish. I've got Mexican friends who call me "champion" simply because I train MMA, even though I've never had a fight. ;)
