Anderson Silva at the UFC 148 press conferenceUFC president Dana White makes no bones about it, Anderson Silva is far and away his favorite fighter. From what he does in the ring to the superstar/artistic quality, White loves dealing with his 37-year-old middleweight champion.

About the only question that White has left now is, “When does Anderson Silva show up and it’s like, oh (expletive), I’m old?”

Silva hasn’t given any indication that it will be any time soon, but as White says, you never know. One day, it will happen.
