Dana White_s tune has changed when it comes to Anderson "The Spider" Silva. At one time White threatened to fire his middleweight champion after poor performances against Thatles Leites and Demian Maia.
It_s different these days, especially after UFC 153, where during the press conference White compared Silva to Mike Tyson and stated he is the greatest of all time:
â€œAnderson Silva is laying down records that wonâ€™t be broken for 50 years,â€ said White after the press conference. â€œIf he really thinks he has five years left, heâ€™s not at the tail end of his career. Five years is a very long time. Three fights a year for five years?
â€œThe guy is 37 years old, going on 38. 37 is when a guy is done, heâ€™s over, heâ€™s toast, especially in the fight business. Heâ€™s just a freak of nature when it comes to fighting.â€
â€œHeâ€™s the greatest of all time. I think heâ€™s the greatest in any combat sport. Anderson Silva just does amazing things that nobody else can do,â€ exclaimed White, proclaiming him superior to even Mike Tysonâ€™s heyday in boxing.
â€œWatch every fight that he has. Enjoy every moment that heâ€™s here, because when heâ€™s gone, youâ€™re gonna regret it (if you donâ€™t).
â€œAnderson Silva is the guy you want to watch when heâ€™s fighting.â€
