With the fallout from the revelation of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones‘ positive test for cocaine and his subsequent decision to enter a drug treatment center, UFC president Dana White made the media rounds at the FOX Sports studios on Wednesday to discuss the situation.
When White stopped by UFC Tonight to speak with Brian Stann and Kenny Florian, White certainly talked about the Jones situation, but he addressed a whole lot more than that. Aside from addressing whether he thought Georges St-Pierre and Brock Lesnar might return to the fold in 2015, White also broke down the title picture for many divisions, chief among them the middleweight division, where former champion Anderson Silva about to return and could quickly earn a shot at the belt.
“2015 is starting off with amazing fights. Probably the best January in the company’s history. And all these fights lead to bigger fights,” White said.
“Diaz and Anderson Silva are fighting, and obviously if Anderson Silva wins that fight, and whether Vitor or Weidman win that fight, then you have Anderson Silva versus either one of those guys.”
