"We asked him to take [a fight with Stann], and he turned it down," White said. "He said, 'I don't like it because everybody likes this guy.' That's kind of a weird philosophy, but I'll accept that. Wanderlei's a warrior. He always goes out there. So we offered him the Vitor fight, and now he's on Twitter lobbying to fight Chris Leben."
Silva tweeted this recently, but Dana says he hasnt offered that fight, nor does he want it.
"I fight with Chris Leben. I think we’re going to give a great show for the fans."
"I don't want him to fight Chris Leben, I want him to fight Vitor Belfort. Vitor Belfort has accepted the fight, wants the fight, and now we're fighting for Wanderlei to accept the fight."
It seems Wanderlei Silva wants to fight Chris Leben more so than Vitor Belfort. Silva called out Belfort first, and now that Belfort has accepted, he is lobbying for a different fight. The fans did want to see Leben fight Silva, prior to his loss to Brian Stann, but now Dana White isnt interested in putting that fight together anymore. Which fight do you want to see come to frution?
