Anderson Silva has continued his war of words with UFC president Dana White all the while feeling that his outspoken comments have helped his fellow fighters.
Taking to his Instagram page with a two-minute live stream, the former middleweight champion laid out what he feels White must do next regarding the 185 lbs title scene by using the UFC president’s words against him.
“Now the almighty one, who everybody knows who it is, has to calm down and putto fight,” Silva said. “Now he has to put Yoel Romero to fight, and there is no excuse. He has no excuse to give. He has to put Yoel Romero to fight, because Yoel Romero is the No. 1 in the ranking, and [Michael] Bisping said he’s ready to fight. So, there’s no more talk. He has to put Yoel Romero to fight. Period.”
Silva would then go on to continue in regards to bemoaning his current situation and suggested that Dana White had ‘shot himself in the foot’.
“In a way, I helped a fellow fighter, and I think that’s what we should do. It’s not about cursing at Dana White or fighting the [UFC brass]. It’s not. It’s using what they are doing to us back against them. Dana, the almighty, shot himself in the foot.
“I’ll be honest with you,” The Brazilian confessed. “I don’t have any personal problem with him, but the problem is when it affects the fighters, when it affects the fighters that leave home for three months to train, who train hard, who train injured, and who make it all happen … we are the ones who make the show happen, not him. No. He sits there and only books fights and stays there, brother. The truth is that this is a big joke that is happening, and it has to stop.
“This is what I love doing. That’s what I love the most in my life, but I can’t accept this b******t with athletes in our division and athletes in the entire sport. People have to understand that the UFC is not a sport, the UFC is a company. The UFC is not a sport. MMA is a sport. The UFC is just a brand that produces MMA fights.
“One for all, all for one.”
