When you get people talking about a fight and then it picks up steam you know that you have something on your hands as a promoter. For Dana White, he has seen the reaction that a potential Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva fight has gotten and he seems interested in giving that fight to the world. Look, for every bone-headed move that Dana White makes, if he goes ahead and makes Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz we’ll go back and forget some of those mistakes.
Why? Because Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz is a tremendous fight and the kind of fight that the UFC should be able to give fans. The quote from him on this is short and sweet;
“Anderson wants to fight Nick. Nick wants to fight Anderson,” he said. “Why would I say no?”
So make it happen, already. [source]
