Dana White Discusses the State of the UFC Middleweight Division & Lyoto Machida’s Status as a Contender
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.06.2014

- Dana White recently spoke about Lyoto Machida earning a Middleweight Title shot with a win over Gegard Mousasi and the state of the middleweight division. Here is what he had to say…

"The Vitor Belfort-Chris Weidman fight has to happen first. But yes, if Machida wins, he could possibly be next in line for a title shot."

The thing that makes this 185-pound division so interesting and so exciting right now is, obviously Chris Weidman looked unbelievable in his two fights against Anderson Silva and is the new champ. But (look) who you've got waiting in the wings now. You've got Vitor Belfort next, you have (Ronaldo) ‘Jacare' Souza, you have Lyoto Machida, and the list goes on and on of all these nasty, nasty guys at 185 pounds. And let's not forget, Anderson Silva could be back in a year, and he's still the No. 1-ranked (contender) in the world. So that division has never been more exciting."
