Anderson Willing To Fight the LHW title holder @ 192...

Saw this on another site and was like...hmmm this is interesting. Can somebody translate. Copy and pasted it verbatim.

http://sportv.globo.com/site/eventos...-este-ano.html

Here is the translation,

"The lecture was held last Wednesday in Las Vegas, and was attended by Anderson, former player Rai, the announcer of TV Globo Galv„o Bueno and his son, the pilot of Stock Car Caca Bueno. They answered the questions of those present, the company's employees, and at some point the fighter was asked about the matchup against Jon Jones. Besides confirming their willingness to face it and say that this should occur in 2013, said the Spider to be fighting at a weight of about 87kg intermediate and not worth nor his middleweight belt (up to 83.9 kg) nor the light heavyweight belt (up to 93kg) Jones. Also according to the Brazilian, the idea is that the event takes place in New York City, where it has already exited the release of the State of New York to perform MMA tournaments there. If not, is there a chance of the stage being a soccer stadium in Brazil. The story was told by an official of that great Brazilian company the details of the lecture."

NEW YORK - MADISON SQUARE GARDEN! HISTORY IN THE MAKING!

I'm kind of sick of all this I'll fight GSP, no wait, the 205 winner, then oh now wait, maybe i'll fight at 185 again.

Dude should just fight at 185, or relinquish the belt and only have super fights.

He was ready for GSP, but unfortunately he opted out of that. I think this is a step in the right direction for an eventual showdown.

So he wants Jon Jones a guy who has openly said he'll be a Heavyweight very soon to cut to 192 lbs.

We all know Anderson's scared to take that beating but Jesus Christ! This is rich even for Anderson, he'll fight the bigger man but only if Bones weakens himself severely due to a weight cut meanwhile Anderson has has no problem making 205 and beating bigger guys.

This guy's a joke. I hope Weidman strangles him.

Jones can't make that.

Sonnen could, but Sonnen isn't going to win so that's rather moot.

Hm...interesting. So he'll fight Jones at a catchweight, and not for the LHW title at 205? He's already fought at 205, so I guess he just wants Jones to be weaker cuz of the cut. Although, he has said he was willing to cut to 170 to fight GSP, so it'll be interesting to see if Jones would be willing to cut to 192lbs it's funny though, I don't know if Jones could get down to that weight, he's one of the biggest LHW in the division.

At least he's willing to work will Both GSP and Jones.... It's funny how people will hate on him but yet he's the only one willing to go up or down and willing to give or take pounds.

How in the blue hell is he working with Jones? You and I both know there's no possible way Jones can make 192 and be healthy.
