When José Aldo (21-1) and Quinton Jackson (32-10) informed Dana White they were injured and couldn’t compete in their respective fights, the UFC president watched what began as his worst day.
“There’s no way to explain it,” said White to TATAME. “It was pretty crazy, it was sickening. It was the worst day of my life since I started doing this.”
Then Anderson Silva (32-4) stepped forward and was willing to fight in front of his home country.
“The fact is that we kept the show,” said White. “The issue is that the greatest fighter of all time accepted into the main event. It’s what makes me want to continue in this sport. ”
Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar (15-7) takes place in the main event of UFC 153 on October 13.
