Dana White Says Silva vs. Sonnen Was Pushed Back Due To Injury

UFC President, Dana White spoke this week about the middleweight face off between Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen that was pushed back to UFC 175 after “The Axe Murderer” suffered some injuries during the infamous brawl during filming of TUF Brazil 3.

Dana, speaking to the press after last night’s fights said:

“What happened was Wanderlei got hurt in that fight. He got double legged on the concrete and he hurt his back. He hurt his hand punching Chael in the head and he got injured. He couldn’t fight on time because he got hurt in the fight f—ing coaching a show. I’m done being angry now. I was angry when it happened. It’s just disgusting.”

“There’s a bunch of idiots in the media saying, ‘That thing looks contrived.’ It was far from contrived. That thing was a disgusting display of what shouldn’t happen, and if I was there it would have never happened. The fact that there were other people, even people holding camera in that f–king place and let that happen is just beyond belief. Then the kid who runs in and sucker-punched Chael from behind, it’s just as bad as it can get.”
