He thinks other people want to see it too...
Dana White spoke following UFC Fight Night 30 about Lyoto Machida's win and more. Check out the highlights:
On Machida's win: "It was huge. Huge. I think, and I'm just talking here as a fan, not as a promoter, I think a lot of people want to see him and Vitor Belfort. That would be a fun fight. Vitor's got to win down in Brazil. And who knows – (Machida) could fight someone else before that. But I'm just saying, as a fan, and speaking for many fans, that's the fight they want to see. At least that's what everyone was screaming at me on the way out of the arena tonight."
On a potential Machida vs. Bisping fight: "I love Mike Bisping, but here's the thing – he's out for six months. Have you seen his eye? His eye is a mess. So he's going to be out for a while. What he believes and what the doctor believes are two different things. When he becomes a doctor, then I'll start listening to what he believes about his eye." So while it appears Machida has some options being floated around, it will be a wait-and-see proposition for who he'll get next.
