UFC President Dana White was a recent guest on the syndicated local California Radio Show, The Tom Leykis Show. While his appearance on the show was brief, he had some interesting things to say regarding the Light Heavyweight division. In particular White said that if Lyoto Machida is victorious over Thiago Silva on Jan 31st, then he will be granted a title shot for the Light Heavyweight Championship. However, he went on to say that if Silva gets the win over Machida, Silva will still need one more victory under his belt before he is granted a title opportunity.

He said, If lyoto wins, he gets the title shot, if Thiago (wins), hes a win away from the title shot. Definately some things to look forward too.

White also commented on the surprising announcement that Rampage Jackson, for whom most people expected would be next in line to face Rashad Evans for the belt, will be facing off against Keith Jardine at UFC 96.

White said, Most people dont care about this fight, but its a f@#*%! good fight. I dont make these kind of fights for nothing. The buildup will be good, watch.
