Anderson Silva willing to face Jones at catchweight later this year in NY

Translated by Google translate, sorry in advance

Dana White has said more than once that the discourse of Anderson Silva "on the inside" is quite different from the words he says to the journalists towards their next opponents. And so the SPORTV.COM found, UFC president was telling the truth. When asked by the press about the superfight against Jon Jones , Spider say it's "tioz„o" and has no interest in the American experience, however, in a lecture to a large Brazilian company last week, the middleweight champion said does have the interest, and expected fight must happen this year, but without avail belt.

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.

The SPORTV.COM contacted one of the entrepreneurs of Anderson Silva, Jorge "Joinha" Guimar„es ", for comment statements fighter. agent admitted the possibility of a superfight happen, but said there is nothing confirmed:
- This is a fight that nobody is interested in taking the belt from anyone. Eventually it can happen, everything indicates that it can happen, but nothing is confirmed yet. Nothing was spoken. Now they are talking about Chris Weidman, then there is nothing scheduled. But everyone has that in mind - said by telephone.

Anderson's comments coincide with a statement of Dana White at the end of last week. The bigwig had assured the fans that the Spider will stage a superfight against Jones or Georges St-Pierre, the welterweight champion (up to 77.1 kg) in 2013:
- GSP will defend his title against Nick Diaz in March, Anderson Silva will defend his title this summer (winter in Brazil), and later this year we will see a superfight with Anderson Silva against GSP or Jon Jones. One of the two will happen.
