"I think superfights are important for the sport," Jones explained to MMAFighting.com. "They're important for legacies. A desire to compete in one, I really don't have this big desire to compete against anyone in particular. Right now I have a good recipe of success, and they say if it's not broke, don't fix it. So unless someone comes and challenges me, or what not, I'm fine going on about my merry way and competing against these light heavyweights."
Jones' words are telling, considering the only superfight with his name attached is the one against Silva. It's a blockbuster match-up, potentially the biggest in the history of the sport, and as recent as a year ago it seemed impossible.
Yet with incentives slowly mounting, both publicly and financially, both men have shown signs of warming to the idea.
"Everything is a possibility," the young champ teased. "I really can't count too much out. I do believe that we're put on this earth to think big and dream big, and not limit ourselves. And fighting Anderson would be a definite testament of my faith and my warrior experience, and things like that. So who knows what will happen in the future."
Aware of how his words would be interpreted, Jones then added, "Sounds like we're breaking, huh? Me and Anderson, sounds like the story is twisting? I'm up for whatever, man."
