Anderson Silva has been quoted discussing his possible superfight against light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, saying he'd like to take the fight at a cacthweight.
According to the middleweight champion, who was attending a conference held by a Brazilian company in Las Vegas, Brazil's SporTV quoted Silva saying he'd like to fight Jones at a catchweight of 192 pounds and hopes the event will land in New York City.
One of Silva’s managers, Jorge Guimaraes, further explained, “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.”
So will the champ fight Jones or GSP, who will it be? Likely that decision won't be made until seeing the outcomes of GSP's next fight at UFC 158, and Jon Jones' bout against Chael Sonnen, who ever performs the best and comes out with the least damage will likely get that fight.
