White thinks he'll be focused...
Dana White recently spoke about Anderson Silva's rematch with Chris Weidman at UFC 168. Check out the highlights:
On Silva's loss to Weidman: "I've talked to him at length about it, and he's got this thing where his foot was in the wrong position, and had his foot been in a different position that would have never happened. I mean, how do you question Anderson Silva? The guy's a master. He loses one fight, the critics dive in and start ripping him apart, like they know what the hell they're talking about. Look what the guy has accomplished in his career. Maybe it was one little foot movement. We'll find out Dec. 28."
On Silva's attitude going into the rematch: "That's the big question of this fight. Everybody's asking which Anderson Silva is going to show up. Is he going to mess around like he did last time? What's he going to do? Who knows. I can tell you this: I think he's going to show up and be focused, and be as sharp as he's ever been and try to win this fight. That's what I think he's going to do."
On Silva's desired fight withn Roy Jones Jr.: "These two drive me crazy. They drive me crazy. First of all, Roy Jones Jr. is a longtime friend of mine. When I was a 19-year-old kid in the boxing business, Roy Jones was very good to me. So I'm in this position where I feel like Roy wants to fight him, he wants to fight Roy – I feel like I'm in this position to try to make both of these guys happy. But it drives me crazy. I would love Roy Jones Jr. to focus on his next opponent and Anderson to focus on his. We'll talk about all this stuff. I know Roy's coming to the fight – we'll see what happens."
