In a exclusive interview with Sensei SporTV via Tatame Brazil Dana White says that Machida could become the best pound for pound fighter should Anderson Silva retire. [The full translation is available here]:
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.
I was a bit surprised to see that Dana White holds Machida in such high regard:
"Machida has everything to be the next best pound for pound fighter in MMA" said White.
