Anderson Silva "There's No Way" A Super Fight with Jon Jones Happens | MMAWeekly.com
With Jones on his current run, there now seems to be a lot of interest in a super fight pitting the UFC’s light heavyweight champion against Anderson Silva.
But while Silva has gone up to 205lbs for a few bouts when the UFC has asked him to in the past, it’s not a long term plan for him, and he has no plans of staying there to challenge Jon Jones at any point in time.
“Well, there are many possibilities but fighting Jon Jones is one of them that I don’t think is possible,” Silva said on Thursday. “There’s no way.”
Silva has never been shy in saying that he’s not comfortable going up to 205lbs outside of the times the UFC has asked him to make the move, and his goal is to finally face St-Pierre if he ever does a ‘super fight’.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
