UFC president Dana White at UFC 146UFC president Dana White was a guest on Wednesday’s edition of Highly Questionable on ESPN.

Straight away, the show’s hosts hit White with questions about accusations that Anderson Silva threw the fight against Chris Weidman at UFC 162 on July 6.

White has been adamant about shooting down such speculation, and ESPN juggernaut or not, he didn’t shy away from speaking his mind on Highly Questionable.

“Anderson Silva has broke every record in UFC history. He’s the pound-for-pound best of all time. Why would you throw a fight?!” White exploded in response to questions that the fight was fixed. “It’s just ridiculous… Who is going to throw a fight by getting viciously knocked out?! Do you know how stupid you have to be to even think that? You are an absolute moron!”
