UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones has had his name thrown around in recent weeks as a possible opponent for Anderson Silva, a super fight that could potentially be the biggest in the young sport of MMA to date, and he talked about the fight this week:
“I respect [Silva] a lot,” Jones reportedly said to Brazilian outlet Correio Brazilienseour, via MMA Fighting. “As I said several times, I do not want to be the guy who beat Anderson, and do not want to be the guy who lost to him. Anderson is a great champion, I’m a great champion…I don’t know. I don’t know. I’m not saying that the fight will not happen. It can happen. But it’s not something I’m chasing.”
So what do you think, will it happen?
