Dana White recently spoke about the upcoming Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen II fight. Here are the highlights..
On Silva's New Attitude: "I've promoted every Anderson Silva fight since he's been in the UFC and I've never heard him talk even remotely closely like this," White said on the call. "He usually doesn't say anything negative or disrespectful. I've never heard Anderson so over the top like this."
On The Buyrates: "There's no doubt that we plan on doing over a million buys here, and yes, we expect UFC 100 numbers."
On How Big The Fight Is: "This isn't one of the biggest sporting events of the summer – it's one of the biggest sporting events of the year," White said. "Anderson Silva is a very big star, and this is a fight that people care about and want to see all over the world. Very few people would dispute, not only is he the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, but probably the best mixed martial artist ever."
