Dana White: “EVERY fighter I’ve talked to thinks Weidman will beat Silva”

Posted: June 17, 2013 in Commentary/Opinion

anderson-silva1Dana White claims to have done a survey of UFC fighters on who’s going to win the Anderson Silva/Chris Weidman fight. This is funny to me. Did White run around to every fighter he knew with his spiral notebook tallying votes? Apparently so. And the in-depth study shows some amazing results.

According to White EVERY fighter—100% of them—is picking Weidman to dethrone the champion. Every single one. Here’s the exact quote from Dana…

“All the pros, when you talk to all the fighters – every fighter out there that I’ve talked to that we’ve interviewed thinks Weidman is going to beat him. Georges St. Pierre thinks he’s going to win so much that he didn’t even want to plan to fight Anderson.”

Okay Dana. Are you trying to tell me that Anderson Silva—the consensus greatest fighter in the history of MMA—didn’t get even one vote? The guy who hasn’t lost a fight in almost a decade? Not one?

Did he only ask Weidman’s training partners? Or is he just trying to build this thing up?

Pardon me if I roll my eyes.
