Dana White says he’s found “the next Anderson Silva”

From Kevin Iole’s mailbag column at Yahoo! Sports:

He said he’s found “the next Anderson Silva,” a lightweight who is competing in Season 8 of TUF at 155 pounds, though he declined to release the fighter’s name because it might spoil the season. “I was going off when I saw this guy,” White said. “He’s 24 and he’s destroying people. It’s sick how bad ass he is. I’m getting goose bumps talking to you about him.”

“The next Anderson Silva” might be pushing it a little, but I do have to admit that I’m excited to see who it is that White is talking about. Don’t forget that C.B. Dollaway was hyped up to win this last season of TUF and he was somewhat of a bust when it came down to the end. Not saying that will happen this time around, but we’ve been fooled before.
