Super-fight: Silva V. Jones?

mmameltdown


Anderson Silva's monstrous win over Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153 prompted immediate speculation as to the future of the best pound for pound fighter in MMA.

Those spectators who caught UFC 153 experienced a spectacular show as an elegant Silva toyedwith Bonnar sitting on the fence before pouncing on the vulnerable Bonnar for a brilliant first round TKO by way of some ground n' pounding following a deadly accurate flying knee. Almost instantaneously fanswondered where to look for Silva next, the possibility of a "super-fight” swirled in the air. The name of Jon Jones comes to mind so quickly it's ridiculous, although the two friends have said on multiple occasions that they will not fight each other. Anderson Silva was quoted as saying "People are talking about that so much that... I don't have this ambition, this (fight) doesn't motivate me, especially since they have other athletes in my team, such as Lil' Nog, Maldonado, Feijao, Caldeirao (Wagner Prado), that are in his weight class. My weight class is 185, my belt is of that weight class. But people are talking so much about this, and we are employees of the UFC. Of course, I could be saying that I don't want it, but what if he goes out and accepts the money Dana is proposing for him to fight? It will be hard (not to accept it). It's not the money that motivates me to fight, I fight because I like it. So, I don't know. I wouldn't like (to fight him). But if it's going to happen, it would have to be at a catch-weight. The belt shouldn't be at play. I already have mine and I don't want a belt to be left at the side." Another name that is being discussed is the current Welterweight champion George St. Pierre. Many fans would like tosee Silva face off against Jones, but the fight that we will probably see is Silva V. GSP. That fight would be a huge money maker venue. Dana White is trying so very hard to get Silva and Jones together that if he fails he's going to want to fall back on this one.

Anderson Silva is a force to be reckoned with and there is no end in sight for this MMA powerhouse. In the coming months I will definitely be keeping an eye out for either Silva V. Jones or Silva V. GSP, though I think many would agree the Jones V. Silva fight would be better in all likelihood we will be seeing Silva V. GSP very soon.
