Even Dana White Says Wanderlei Silva Needs a Win

(‘All right, time to stop screwing around and get serious here.’)

As some of us have been saying leading up to UFC 84, Saturday night’s bout with Keith Jardine is close to a do-or-die situation for Wanderlei Silva. While a loss won’t necessarily sign his walking papers from the UFC, neither will it provide him with a lot of job security. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at what Dana White had to say:

“Wanderlei has lost three in a row,” White said. “This guy has to win some fights here to stay in the UFC and stay at the top of the 205-pound division.”

“He’s one of these unique fighters who people just love to watch fight because of his mentality on fighting,” White said. “Obviously, though, [he] has to get a win.”

Now, obviously there’s a difference between saying Silva has to win a fight and saying he has to win this fight, but the implication seems to be that he’s certainly not immune from the roster cuts if things don’t turn around for him soon. Got that, Wanderlei? Just in case you were suffering from a lack of pressure.

I know now they can get Wandy back in the W column: put him on shows in the UK where they won't test him for steroids! You know, just like Pride!

Wand was good in pride, but without knees on the ground and much of an arsenal does he have left? Watch the chuck fight again, when he goes down, wand is like "wtf do I do now derrrr". Complete wash up, let Jardine pulverize him so we don't have to watch more videos of wand learning how to scuba dive.
