Jon Jones: ‘I would never fight Anderson Silva’

The 2012 ESPY Awards - Arrivals

“I would never want to fight Anderson. Never. Ever.”

“I just look up to him so much. And he’s just…I don’t have many people that I’ve looked up to in my lifetime and think, ‘wow, how cool would it be to be that guy.’ Look at what he’s done. Jordan, LeBron, Anderson, Kobe, I consider them all in the same type of class. The Jeters. Athletes of that caliber don’t come around that often. I don’t want to be the guy to beat him. Even though that’s happened already, I wouldn’t want to lose to him and I don’t want to beat him. “

During yesterday’s special UFC press-conference, Jon Jones touched on a potential superfight against Anderson Silva.
