I’m not entirely sure if calling Dana White “George Bush” is accurate or not. Not at all. I’m trying to find a connection other than them both being old, rich and in power, but if Anderson Silva wants to call Dana that, Tim Kennedy will fight for his right to do so.
Sure, Dana has prevented Anderson from competing in some extracurricular activities, but isn’t that his job? Who wants their champion gone in the Olympics or getting hurt in a boxing match?
I tell you what, though. I really want to see Anderson in the Olympics in taekwondo.
“I think that Dana could let me tryout in taekwondo for the 2016 Olympic Games and let me fight Roy,” Silva told Roda Viva in Brazil, “but if he let me do that, he would need to let other fighters do their things, so he would lose control.”
“[Dana White] is a big dad, but we have our fights all the time,” he continued. “He’s the Bush of MMA.”
