Dana White Talks Conor McGregor & more!
Dana White recently spoke to UFC.com about the contenders in the UFC Featherweight Division. Here is what he had to say… “Especially with all the excitement in that division with Conor McGregor, Cub Swanson and Frankie Edgar – that division is so exciting that people are talking about freaking Nik Lentz and Dennis Bermudez. I told Cub and Frankie, ‘Don’t worry about anything you hear with all the Conor McGregor talk and all the other stuff. You worry about Cub Swanson and you worry about Frankie Edgar.’ Believe me, the fact that people are arguing over who should get a title shot in the 145-pound division isn’t a bad thing. It’s a good thing.”

Thiago Silva has been released from jail following his altercation with his estranged wife last month. As previously reported, Silva was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and a count of resisting arrest without violence connected with the incident. Silva allegedly drove to Pablo Popovitch Mixed Martial Arts Academy in Florida and threatened his wife Thaysa and Popovich with a gun before fleeing to his home where, after a standoff with police, he surrendered nonviolently. Silva was released from the UFC afterward.

Silva's lawyer has confirmed that he was released on a $25,000 bond following a hearing today. The lawyer noted that he and others, including Rashad Evans and Fabianna Popovitch, spoke on Silva's behalf.

Silva is due back in court next week.
