Jon Jones Says Superfight With Anderson Silva Still Possible


“All Anderson has to do is win his next fight decisively and there’s the interest right there. It’s still on, the superfight. I’ve never really been overly anxious to face Anderson Silva though to be honest. I knew the fight could happen but I never had any desire to be the one to beat him or anything like that.

After he lost I Tweeted about my disappointment and that him losing sucked, but it was just because watching a champion lose always sucks. It’s like he’s also a member of this special league of gentlemen and when you see one of the guys get taken down it sucks. But Anderson, and any thought of a superfight, well, it’s still there.”

UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, was at one time set on a collision course with the (former) middleweight champion, Anderson Silva.

Silva lost his title in an upset to Weidman and all talks of the superfight went out the window.

Jones now tells Fighters Only that if Anderson comes back and dominates Weidman in their rematch, set for December, that the potential for the champion vs. champion fight will return.

    jones vs travis browne is a more fair fight to me. i love anderson more but bones will dominate silva

  2. magoo says:

    Gotta agree with u squid, Jones would wreck Silva…. Easily and decisively… Superfight my ass! Jones against Cain or JR would be a superfight. There’s only one man in the LHW div left to give Jonathan a challenge… His name is Glover Texiera! That’s gonna be a hell of a fight!

    • Josh Pellicer says:

      Texiera is the closest thing to a heavyweight besides JBJ imo, the guy is huge i don’t even know how he makes the weight cut.. JBJ still to win both fights though
