I recently listened in on the Joe Rogan podcast, while they had Dana White as a guest and one of the key talking points they visited was the plan to get Anderson Silva in the ring to fight Jon Jones.
Dana said, "I have to make Silva vs. Jones happen". "He (Silva) likes big fights, so this event has a lot of potential" White said. Now, we all know that Dana is about making big money fights and keeping the Fertitta's happy, so I think there is a high probability for this fight to happen, as I am sure Dana will offer both guys a SHITLOAD
of money to fight.
Here's a recent write-up from mmajunkie regarding the matter (mentions how Dana will make a superfight for sometime during the end of 2013 with either GSP vs Silva or Silva vs Jones):http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/02/ufc-super-fight-with-anderson-silva-jon-jones-or-georges-st-pierre-in-2013
Who is your pick to win if this fight were to come about?
I am picking Anderson Silva.
Jones has the height, weight, reach and explosive power advantage on his side.
Anderson has the experience, skillset (Black belt in Muay Thai, 5th dan Black belt in Tae Kwon Do, Black belt in JiuJitsu, Black belt in judo and a professional boxer in Brazil) and speed.
Who would You pick?
