Anderson Silva is not aspiring to leave his UFC middleweight belt, but if a bout opposite Jon Jones goes down – it would be at a catchweight.  During a a promotional event in  Rio de Janeiro  the  middleweight kingpin tells Brazil’s SporTV

“People are talking about it.  I don’t have such intentions, there isn’t any motive to do so, mostly because there are several people form my team who belong to his weight class Minotouro, Maldonado, Feijao, Caldeirao.  My weight is 84kg, that’s my title.  But lots of people talk about it, and some of those are UFC’s emploees.  

It’s obvious, I might be saying that I don’t want, but if he accepts the money Dana offers him?  It is going to get tough.  It isn’t the cash that makes me do what I do, I fight because I like it.  I don’t know…I wouldn’t like.  But if it’s going to happen it would have to be in catch weight.  His belt wouldn’t be on the line. I already have my title, I don’t want my title to be on the loose.”
