Dana White: "If He[Anderson Silva] Could Cut Down To 170lbs, I'd Do A GSP Fight"

New, 33 comments

I wrote earlier this morning that UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva expressed interest in fighting as a welterweight.  I, as well as others in the comment section thought that it was Silva just talking.  However, it seems as though it is an actual possibility with White saying that he would be open to letting Silva fight as a welterweight.  He has long supported Anderson Silva as the best pound for pound fighter in the world, and Silva competing in 3 different weight classes over the past 2-3 years would definitely lend more credibility to that argument. 

White also talks about holding an event for the troops in Afghanistan sometime this year, the UFC 112 event in Abu Dhabi, and what scares him about holding outdoor events.
