Rogério Camõess told Tatame, “The biggest challenge would be Jones. First the natural question of size difference. In his division, Anderson has the advantage of size, but Jon Jones has even more. He has the same power as Anderson.” Jones would sport a nearly a 7 inch reach advantage over Silva, and one would imagine that Jones would weigh much more than Silva the night of the fight, but we all know a strong mind can overcome almost anything.
Camõess went on to say, “He (Anderson) is very reserved in his choices. When he decides he will fight, he calls me, Ramon Lemos, and Distak ,and asks if we think he should fight. But first, the decision is his. He never talked to me about it, I never said any name. He has a work ethic off the charts.”
“After this fight against Chris Weidman, perhaps he will fight Jones in New York, and we will prepare for it. We never chose a fighter. But I would like to see this fight against Jones yes. I think Anderson deserves to end up being called the best fighter ever.”
What does Penn Nation think? Should ‘The Spider’ fight Jones at the end of his contract in NYC? Who wins?
