Anderson Silva will move up in weight to face Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153 but don_t expect a super fight with UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones anytime soon.
The 37 year old Middleweight Champion discussed why he doesn_t want to fight Jones yesterday at the UFC 153 press conferenced:
"There_s always been a lot of talk about me moving up to 205, I know Dana has talked about it a lot, all the fans have talked a lot about me moving up and facing Jon Jones, but it_s something I_ve never wanted. I won_t be pretentious to say that I want to move up, especially because there_s other guys in that weight class on our team like Rafael Feijao (Cavalcante), (Antonio Rogerio) Minotoro Nogueira, there_s other guys that could potentially face Jon Jones in the future. I_m 37-years old and I feel like I need to be honest and to continue what I_ve built which is keep defending my belt at 185."
