    I think the problem is that if he was to go for

    GSP & Silva & Machida that's about 9 months, which means lightweight title is out for at least 12 months, welter weight 9 months, middleweight 6 months, and leight heavy 3 months.

    Then which title would he defend?

    Since when did Machida win the LHW title?

    (Danas big announcements are always minor)

    Then Sherdog or some site will say Silva and BJ Penn is on... Dana White will say 'BJ and Silva is on' about a week later. They will then fight and Dana will say 'I didnt want this fight to happen... blah, blah'

    Fucking lol if that happens mate.

    It is so funny that people hate Dana White when in reality he doesn't really care because the stuff he says makes news and leads to the stuff above, which leads to lots more viewers and then lots more dollars. He is doing an ok job to be fair to him. Only the fighters know what the business side is like and they have pretty varied opinions but hey, most of them stay with the UFC for a long time (if they win).

    If he really doesn't want Penn/Silva to happen there are only two reasons I can think why; he hates Penn and doesn't want him to win (doesn't make business sense though) OR he thinks Silva will destroy Penn which will look bad in the mainstream press who will talk about "mismatches".
