Though Silva Shows No Interest Dana White Guarantees He Can Make Jones Fight Happen | UFC NEWS
“I know this, the Georges St-Pierre/(Anderson Silva) fight is a big fight. I think the Jon Jones fight is a big fight. And I know my man says, ‘no, no, no,’ but the amount of money that would be offered for that fight, I guarantee you, I will make Anderson Silva say, ‘yes, yes, yes’. I will fly down here, I will lock myself in a room with Jorge (Guimaraes), Ed Soares and (Anderson Silva) and I will make this fight.”
Dana White prides himself on his ability to make big fights happen, and right now a Jones vs. Silva fight is about as big as it gets.
While his middleweight champion Anderson Silva has proven time and time again that he can compete in the 205 pound division, Silva is set on leaving the upper weight class to his teammates.
During the UFC 153 post-fight press conference White told the media that Anderson Silva has a price and he is willing to pay the price and make the fight happen.
