    Anderson Silva Says He Would Never Fight Jon Jones - Bloody Elbow



    Anderson Silva appears to be more interested in the "Winable" superfight against Georges St. Pierre than facing Jon Jones at Light Heavyweight according to an interview with Esportes.r7.com: (translated by BE's own Tom Mendes)

    On fighting Jones:

    "No chance, he’s in a different weight class, we are friends and we won’t fight each other."
    On fighting GSP:

    "There is a chance there, everything will depend on our results. It depends on him winning at UFC 129 and me winning in August (against Yushin Okami). And from there, who knows, this fight could take place."
    Okay....I don't even know where to begin with this interview. We won't fight Jones because he's in another weight class but he'll fight GSP who's in another weight class? And when did him and Jones become such good friends? Whatever respect I had for Anderson went right out the window. He is a coward.

    Come on dude , its not like Jones would fight against Brock or Cain...
    Or Edgar vs GSP... So they are not cowards... I dont think GSP wants to fight Silva either... So I dont see this fight happening either...

    Only part that is strange is that Bones and Silva are friends. Since when? Since he(Bones) won LHW title?

    I won't go so far as to say that Anderson is a coward, but here's what bothers me. Silva (or at the very least his management) has essentially called out GSP for a superfight. So Anderson is okay with making a superfight with an obviously smaller guy, but completely refuses to do the same thing he is challenging GSP to do.

    Is Anderson a coward? Certainly not (I wouldn't want to fight Jon Jones either). But at the same time, if you aren't willing to move up and challenge a bigger man, don't expect another fighter to do what you aren't willing to do. You don't see GSP calling out Jose Aldo, do you?

    I think hypocrite is the word you're fishing for.

    I keep saying this all the time Sakara. Jon Jones and Silva have a huge respect for eachother. Put it this way for Jones he idealizes Anderson Silva like Anderson Silva idealizes Roy Jones Jr.

    Jones himself has even went on record and stated that he looks up to Silva and that Silva was one of his favorites fighters....

    A fight between the two would probably look like Crocop vs Pat Berry. As far as GSP goes wasn't GSP suppose to move up to mw to challenge Silva for the title?

    Anderson - "Yeah, me and Jones are friends so umm, like we can't fight anymore. Yeah thats it"

    "Well when did you two become friends?"

    Anderson - "After I watched the Shogun fight. Yeah...I realized I REALLY wanted to be friends with that guy."


    Anderson is such a fraud. Hey GSP, move up to a weight class you've never fought in to fight me. But me moving up to a weight class I've fought in twice? Nah....he's in another weight class so clearly I couldn't move up to fight him. But yeah, GSP should move up to fight me.

    And since when has Anderson and Jones have "Huge respect" for each other?? HAHAHA

    Way before Jon Jones had so many fans hopping on his wagon after his destruction of Shogun. Way back when people laughed at the idea of Jones being able to beat any of the top contenders like Machida/Shogun.

    If you wanted im sure you can find the video post dated on Youtube. For me this is old news and Silva has long stated that he doesn't want to compete at lhw.

    This fight simply isn't happening and with all the bromancering between the two would you even want to see it anyways?

    It seems like you are looking for a conspiracy where none exist.

    You really should keep up with your own fighters news....

    fightersonly.com

    Nogueira also says the current climate sees Anderson moving up to the 205lb division due to the lack of adversaries at his current weight class.
    So it's okay for Anderson to not want to move up as he claims (which he flip flops on everything as it is) but he want's GSP to move up to fight him? Even you can understand how silly that is. Oh and I do know some of the history behind Jones and Anderson. How they haven't met yet and what not.

    Here's Jon Jones saying he would have the advantage over Anderson in a fight...friends don't fight though I though?

    Jon Jones: I'd have the advantage against Anderson Silva - MMA News

    “I’ve bathed myself in Anderson Silva. I think I’d have an advantage going into a fight with him because I’ve studied him so much.
