Anderson Silva Talks Potential Super-Fight: Wants Roy Jones Instead Of Jon Jones

Anderson Silva Talks Potential Super-Fight: Wants Roy Jones Instead Of Jon Jones

For what it’s worth, Anderson Silva remains hopeful of testing his skills vs. former boxing world champion Roy Jones.

Recently, during an appearance on “UFC Tonight” to promote the December UFC 168 fight vs. UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, Silva was asked about potential super fights.

The Brazilian was straight forward, saying “No, no, no” to any future talk of facing UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

“I don’t like the super fights,” he added. “My super-fight is me and Roy Jones. That’s it.”

Silva also said that talk of future MMA super fights need to “stop.”

    Not that surprising, he’s been wanting Roy Jones Jr for at least 3 yrs now

    The fight makes no sense at all and why the hell is anyone calling it a superfight? Roy jones is not one tenth the fighter he once was. Stuff like this makes me wonder what’s going on in Andersons head. There is absolutely no point at all for this fight to happen.
