Dana White: “I guarantee you Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones will absolutely happen” | UFC News
UFC president Dana White is very confident that a “super fight” between his two top fighters will come to fruition in the near future. In fact, he went as far as to guarantee that the “Spider” and “Bones” will fight some day soon.
Yesterday evening, White took part in a live chat with fans that was hosted online by MetroPCS. When the UFC president was asked about a potential match up between his current middleweight and light heavyweight champions, he responded by saying the following:
“I guarantee you Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones will absolutely happen,” he said. “It’s happening. It will happen.”
No potential dates, events or venues were addressed, but one would have to assume that with Anderson Silva being 37 years young, the window to make this fight happen is not a large one.
Silva and Jones have both been publicly reluctant to face one another when questioned by the media. The stakes would be very high for both fighters, with the winner likely to be touted as the “GOAT” (Greatest Of All Time). The downside is that one of the two men would undoubtebly lose their already established legacy.
However, even with the large “risk” factor for both fighters, Dana White believes the money will be to great for either man to durn down. Is this a once-in-a-lifetime career risk worth taking? Let’s hear it Penn Nation.
