The passion of Joe Silva

source: The Underground

UFC President Dana White is the most powerful man in mixed martial arts. White is a larger than life figure, at least as famous as the organization's top fighters.

However, just below White, or perhaps above in terms of what you see on the television screen, is UFC Vice President for Talent Relations Joe Silva, who was with the UFC long before White and Fertitta brothers acquired it. As matchmaker and chief talent scout, Silva decides who gets signed, who stays and who gets cut.

Although he maintains a low profile, Silva possesses unsurpassed passion for the sport, as seen in this image and gif gallery.

I was there watching live - the Detroit crowd called for Harris' head in that fight.  Seriously I never heard boo's that loud.  The other guy (Falcao) got cut shortly thereafter also.  I wonder if the timekeeper got "cut" also - if not for his fuck-up it would have been over in the 1st round.

I'm glad someone linked this thread in a current Joe Silva reaction thread.  I didn't know he was so passionate. That's awesome, especially considering how long he's had front row seats.   I see his reactions and I automatically relate it to
