UFC President Dana White comments on Anderson’s Silva’s decision to move to the 205 lbs. division.
UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will likely defend his title against Yushin Okami, later this year.
“If the UFC asks me to do something, and it’s within my capability to do so, I’m going to do it….I feel like I’m part of the UFC family and the head of the family asked me to fight. I’m in condition to fight, my coaches say I can fight — I’m going to fight. I want to do whatever I can to help make UFC the No. 1 event around the world like it is.”
“He’s a middleweight…But when certain fights come up at 205 that make sense for him to do, he’s going to do it. At this particular moment Dana asked him to fight and he accepted the challenge.”
