Jon Jones Explains Reasons To Not Fighting Anderson Silva | UFC NEWS
“It’s not that he won’t fight me or I won’t fight him. To be dead honest, it’s that we both have a lot to lose and we both respect each other a lot and we both are striving for personal greatness. I don’t want to crack on his greatness and I don’t want him cracking on my greatness.
“We’re in completely different weight classes. We both have sponsor deals and things that are really important to us and a big part of that sponsorship package is being a winning-being a champion. Having us fight each other means one of our championships goes away.
“I respect Anderson Silva so much that I don’t want to be the guy to beat him. I don’t want to lose to him either. It’s a lose-lose situation for me.”
While talking to ESPN LA AM 710 with Max & Marcellus UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones talks about the super fight everyone wants to see against Anderson Silva and why it is likely not going to happen.
