Anderson Silva on November 12th???

We’ve already shared some of our thoughts on who’s going to fight on the UFC’s November 12th FOX debut. Now you can read about what Dana White is thinking. If you care about that for some reason. Whatever.

White said before he sets the main event for Nov. 12 he needs to watch what transpires Saturday when his long-reigning middleweight champion Anderson Silva defends his belt against Yushin Okami and former light-heavyweight champion Griffin has a rematch with another former champion in the division, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, whom Griffin defeated at Honda Center.

Does that mean Silva could fight in Anaheim?

“I’m not saying that,” White said. “Let me get through these fights.”

Sure Dana White said he’s not saying that … but is he saying that??? If only there was some way of knowing what Dana White is saying when he says stuff.

    Silva fighting on FOX would be the money shot people were expecting.  Problem with Silva is that he might think the chosen opponent is “below” him and ride out an “I guess he “won”?” decision causing the entire nation to hate MMA and those Mexicans from Brazil.

    I’m more inclined to believe that he’s trying to see if Griffin will be back to his old go-for-broke ways (and wins) or if the duct tape holding together Shogun’s knee holds up (and he wins).

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    They’d definitely have to put him in there with someone like Sonnen to guarantee a good fight for TV.  Me, I just wanna see him fight ASAP after the Okami fight.  I still feel like he shoulda filled in against Rashad after he CharlieMurphied Vitor.

    would be a 205 fight for sure.

    According to sources close to the situation, the middleweight champion is in talks with the UFC to fight Dan Henderson at UFC’s first show on FOX, scheduled to November 12, in California.

    TRT makes old men in aged beef!

    ^ sexy….as….fuck

  • Sodomize Intolerance says:

    ^ Because Henderson certainly doesn’t like to stand when he clearly shouldn’t.

  • lukustra says:

    I would have said this was a long shot a few days ago but after Dana’s freak out about Bob Arum’s comments about him “competing” against pacman, Dana might try to have the biggest numbers possible.

  • Billytk says:

    I would have liked to see this rematch back in ’08 but ever since Dan lost to a WW I’ve lost interest in him as part of “superfights”

  • Redping says:

    I want Dan to fight Jon Jones. Anderson Silva fuck off back to MW until you’ve beaten everybody! Chael has some more windshield wiper punches for your head

  • CAP says:

    At this point I just want a good relative fight which seems hard to put together. If Okami hasn’t improved a ton Silva is gonna wreck him. Hopefully make it a short night and put him on FOX. Tits!

    ^ sexy….as….fuck hey jawshy!!! I knew you’d come around. Even though Hendo seems better at LHW.

  • Letibleu says:

    wish I had posted something right before jawsh’s comment so i could insert something homoerotic after the fact for shits n giggles.

  • CAP says:

    You know this is the kiss of death, right. Planning the next match before he is done with Okami angers the MMA gods and could alter the current course.

  • glassjawsh says:

    ^ like the fight 10 times better at lhw
