Ultimate
Fighting Championship president Dana White spoke with MMAWeekly following the
promotion’s recent return to Columbus, Ohio. Following another dominating
performance by middleweight champion Anderson Silva, White called his champion “thee
best 185-pounder ever.”

 

He went on
to discuss Silva’s amazing run to this point in his career and if Yushin Okami
might be next up for him in the UFC.

 

At UFC 84,
former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz steps into the Octagon for what
could be the last time. When he faces Lyoto Machida on May 24, Ortiz will have
fulfilled the final fight on his current UFC contract.

 

White also
discussed the volatile superstar and his status with the UFC. Even though it is
no secret that Ortiz and White are anything but the best of friends, and Ortiz
has repeatedly stated that he would not fight for the UFC again so long as White
is in charge, the UFC president isn’t so quick to nail that coffin shut.

 

He doesn’t
plan on going anywhere. “I’m not planning on quitting because Tito doesn’t want
to fight here if I’m here.” But neither does he believe that automatically
precludes Ortiz from returning. “Even with all the issues I’ve had with that
moron, he’s still in the UFC. We’ll see what happens.”

 

White
closed out the interview talking about the television landscape, as TV deals in
MMA, once equivalent to the infamous search for Sasquatch, seem to be falling
left and right.
