Dana on Silva Vs Jones

Quote:
I know my man says 'No, no, no,'" White said. "But the amount of money that would be offered for that fight, I guarantee you I will make Anderson Silva say, 'Yes, yes, yes.'"

"How many guys in the UFC have said a fight won't happen?" White asked. "And then it does. Anderson has broken every record in the UFC. He's 37 and Bonnar is 35. He's younger. Bonnar is bigger than him. He came to win this fight. Anderson loves the challenge. I think he will take the fight with Jon. Not to mention the fact that the money would be hard for either of them to turn it down."

"There's no doubt who's the number-one fighter of all time. Then you can argue over who is number two and three. This would clean up the debate of who's the best fighter in the world. It'll be about who's the greatest. But you've got to understand, timing is everything. We have shows to run. We can't sit around and wait. If you think I don't want to see both these fights happen, you're crazy. I do."

Talk is cheap Dana has talked about Silva/GSP for years and we haven't seen it yet. When he books it I might take it serious.

I for 1 hope that fight never takes place, I am GSP's #1 fan and that is a complete mismatch in my book. The key is to get Bone's to agree to fighting A.Silva and it happens, I dont care if he tricks him into thinking that this fight would cement his legacy or whatever, just tell the kid what he wants to hear and hopefully he dares to proclaim A.Silva is scared to fight him.....lol

People don't know what's best for them.

We have weight classes for a reason and there are plenty of contenders for everyone. I don't want to see any legacies tarnished when they don't need to be.

The whole legacy being tarnished is ridiculous; if Jones is only real challenge for him then he should fight him or retire. I dont see the current contenders at MW giving him a challenege. Also, just b/c he loses at a bigger weight class does not mean his legacy will be tarnished.....

In all honesty I wouldn't be shocked to see Silva clown Bones just like he does to everybody else. Bones is a physical freak but Silva is technically far superior and I could see him taking advantage of Bones's youth and inexperience to tear him apart. He might even submit him just to showcase Nog BJJ

It will happen I give it to Jones and that's why Silva doesn't sound to crazy about the fight I don't see gsp beating Silva unless he is aggressive I rather see Jones vs Silva than GDP vs Silva I am not a fan of Jon Jones as a person or outside of the cage but in the cage its hard to deny he's just well trained and an incredible athlete he will be champion for a long time I thought Evans had him but nope

You sure do have nut sucking and licking on your mind quite often... Maybe it is you that needs to get the proverbial, possibly literal, nuts out and away from your mouth?

Anyways, this fight probably won't happen and it doesn't need to. For starters, the fighter are in completely different weight classes, with Bones being able to move up to HW whenever he wants. Secondly, Bones does not have a legacy, so he doesn't deserve to be a part of Silva's just yet. Let him go undefeated for a year or 2. Then, if Silva is still around, the fight makes more sense although it still doesn't need to happen. Silva's legacy can not be tainted by losing to a HW. Hell, I don't think Silva would lose but even if he did, it won't change the fact that he's the greatest fighter who does things that nobody else can.

Anyways, horsef***er, just shut up.
