Dana White Says Lyoto Machida is Anderson Silva's Successor

From Sensei SporTV via Tatame comes an interview with the UFC Prez in which he gives light heavyweight contender Lyoto Machida the ultimate compliment.

He isn’t surprised with the possible retirement of Silva after all “Anderson Silva is rich! I’d also retire if I was him”, said Dana in jest. Though he doesn’t actually believe Anderson will retire any time soon . If it does happen, the president believes Lyoto Machida will become the 'The Spiders“ successor.

"Machida has everything to be the next best pound for pound fighter in MMA" said White.

This is something I've been saying for awhile now, no matter what people think of Machida's fighting style, he knows how to fight to win. I believe he could beat anybody at 205lbs, its just a matter of getting the fights he deserves.
