Dana White would like to see Anderson Silva finish career vs. GSP or Jon Jones

Dana White has plans for just about everybody under Zuffa’s umbrella including UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva.

At the present time those plans call for “The Spider” to rest up from a shoulder injury and face the winner of Chael Sonnen-Mark Munoz in 2012. After that, however, it may all be up to Silva.

White, though, wouldn’t mind seeing the 36-year-old Brazilian finish up his career after a few more fights, including a finale bout with either UFC welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre or light heavyweight title-holder Jon Jones.

“He’s probably the greatest fighter in history. He hasn’t lost and has been champion since 2006. I think he has two more title defenses and I do not know what he’ll do next or if he will retire,” said White, in an interview with Brazilian website Alpha. “He could end his career with a super fight against Jon Jones or Georges St. Pierre. He could end his career like that – fight in a different weight class. I would be happy with that. Then he could take a boat and sail into the sunset.”

For Silva, the thrill of fighting seems to continue to drive him. While his body winds down, though, his skill set has not; Silva earned impressive victories over Vitor Belfort and Yushin Okami with relative ease this year.

  • Its awesome to see Dana subtely goading The Spider into superfights. I think Jones is the best test. GSP is just too small and all of his advantages go out the window when he’s dwarfed the way Anderson would dwarf him. Jones had issues at first with Machida’s speed and elusiveness and I think Anderson would do an even better job of slipping Jones’s crazy strikes.
    Its certainly an interesting fight.
