Anderson Silva Will Not Face Jon Jones
“Anderson Silva has made it very clear to me that he does not want to fight at 205 pounds.” ---Dana White, UFC President
The “super fighter” as what they call him, whenever UFC holds an event and a new champ emerges, people wonder if they’ll be pairing the champ against Silva in the future. Just like what happened once Jon Jones finished off Maurcio “Shogun” Rua. Are they facing each other next?
As much as everyone would love that idea, Silva on the other hand says no to going back to 205 pounds again. The fighter informed UFC big boss Dana White that he’ll finish off his career as a middleweight.
“Anderson Silva has made it very clear to me that he does not want to fight at 205 pounds,” White stated following UFC 128.
According to White, Silva only tested his skills as a 205 pounder because of UFC. Now, he stays contended at 185 lbs and will defend his title until his last MMA game.
“Originally, when I was always talking about him trying to go for another belt at 205 pounds, and he stuck his big toe in it a couple times, I think because I was pushing the issue. He’s made it very clear he doesn’t want to fight at 205,” White stated.View Article Source »
