White Loves Super Fights, But Thinks GSP vs. Jones Is A “Stupid Fight”
“You know, we’ve talked about super fights in the past, and they for one reason or another didn’t happen. And when we talk super fights, let’s talk about what ‘super fight’ means. If you have Georges St-Pierre vs. Anderson Silva – if you have Anderson Silva vs. the Jon Jones, the guys who have held the titles and almost cleaned out an entire division.
“Any super fights that we’re looking at right now in my opinion would be like an Anthony Pettis vs. Jose Aldo. Even though Pettis has been injured for a while and hasn’t defended the title, he beat Ben Henderson, who is a guy who had annihilated that whole division. He beat him, and he beat him easily, and Jose Aldo and Pettis have been talking about moving back and forth to take each other’s belts. So really, that’s the only one I can think of that would be a super fight.”
“‘GSP’ and Jon Jones? That’s a stretch there, my friend. There’s a bit of a weight difference between those guys. That’s not a super fight. That’s a stupid fight. OK? What did Georges St-Pierre do to you that you want to get him killed? He weighs 170 pounds. The other guy walks around at like 230.”
During a recent Fan Q&A in China (Replay HERE) UFC President Dana White addressed the topic of super fights in the UFC.
The UFC Boss was asked by a fan in attendance about a potential fight between GSP and Jon Jones. When Dana asked the inquisitor what GSP did to him, the fan stated, “He’s French!”
“Wait, did you just say he’s French??”, asked the UFC President with a laugh.
