UFC: Dana White counters Anderson Silva and sends a message to the legend: ‘What the f*** are you talking about?’

Dana White rebutted Anderson Silva’s statements during the press conference after UFC 274

After Anderson Silva says he was ‘kicked’ from the UFC and had a disrespected legacyit was the turn to Dana Whitepresident of Ultimate, refute the statements of the Brazilian legend and send a message to the fighter.

In a press conference after the 274th event, the billionaire owner of the powerful industry said he never spoke ill of the former middleweight champion.

“I think Shogun still has a fight. And again, I mean, I’m glad you asked me that question. Anderson Silva, what the f*** is Anderson Silva talking about? When have any of you heard me speak negatively? Except for the fight in Abu Dhabi. I never spoke ill of Anderson Silva. Not only did we let the guy fight for the contract, he lost you know like seven of his last, eight of his last nine fights and he always treated him like I don’t know where the hell this is coming from.”

“Coming from him, so I started trying to make it so he wouldn’t make money later. I said that Jake Paul you want to fight someone. Let him fight Anderson Silva. You know he is available and he is 47 years old. This is baffling to me anyway,” he added.

See below the quotes by Anderson Silva in an interview with SportsNaut:

“That’s the problem for people in this sport, especially the UFC because the UFC doesn’t respect the legacy of the fighters. They try to use you and (then) kick you. And when you’re out, they try to destroy your career so you don’t fight anywhere. This has happened to many fighters. People don’t talk about it. I had good times in the UFC, and bad times too. The bad times, for me, was the experience I had behind the scenes. But inside the cage, inside the fight, I do my best. It’s the only time I have control. Outside, I have no control.”

In my (boxing) fight in Mexico, I made more money than in my last three MMA (UFC) fights. I don’t like to talk about the bad stuff, and people say, ‘Oh, now you’re out of the UFC and you talk shit about them.’ It was good for me sometimes, and it was good for the UFC too. It’s done, it’s over. But it’s important to say that everything I say about the situation is because that’s what happened to me.”
