Video: UFC 162 headliner Anderson Silva claims he's the black Dana White

Get a sneak peek at UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva in this upcoming clip from "UFC From All Angles," billed as an "intimate portrait of the pound-for-pound king of the UFC," premiering Tues., May 9, 2013 at 9:30 p.m. ET on FUEL TV.

"One day, guys talk to me. 'Hey, what is your next goal now?' I tell the guys, 'C'mon guys, I'm black Dana. Look at me, I'm black Dana.' They say, 'You sure?' I say, 'Yeah man, I'm black Dana White.' But I'm joking. Sometimes, Dana cranky! C'mon man, smile! But, it's fine. I love him. I have my problems with Dana, but I love him."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva has at least two things in common with promotion president Dana White. One of them is being bald and the other is being rich. Outside of that, there isn't really much to compare since "The Spider" isn't "cranky" like Uncle Dana and well, there's that whole skin color thing. Well see how happy Silva is after UFC 162, when he puts his 185-pound title on the line against Chris Weidman at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 6, 2013. He may leave "Sin City" more like the black Mark Munoz, if this bold prediction comes to pass.
