The idea was brought up during the UFC on FOX 6 post-fight media scrum, and White showed zero interest in the Silva vs Le fight coming to fruition.
"This is typical Anderson Silva-Ed Soares craziness," White said of the situation. "Every (expletive) time there's a fight. He wants to fight (Demetrious) ‘Mighty Mouse' Johnson, then he wants to (expletive) fight this guy and that guy. This is always the same deal, it always happens. ‘I absolutely will not fight Chael Sonnen, he doesn't deserve the title and I'm not doing this and I'm not doing that.' This is what we do. We're waiting on something, we'll see if this pans out."
White added that Silva's next fight will not be a superfight, which means he will remain in the middleweight division. White nixed the idea of Silva fighting Georges St-Pierre or Jon Jones in his next appearance, as both of those tilts would in fact be considered superfights.
"When we're ready to announce it, we'll announce it," White said. "He will defend his title; it won't be a super fight."
Le is riding a two-fight win streak, with victories over Rich Franklin and Patrick Cote. However, he's not considered by many to be a true top contender. As for Silva, he's coming off a knockout win over Stephan Bonnar.
Due to Michael Bisping's recent loss, many expect Long Island's Chris Weidman to be next in line for a title shot.
