re: UFC 159 - Greatest LHW Fight in History - Jonny Bones Jones vs. Chael P. Sonnen


Aww yeah

quote:

During Saturday's UFC 159 post-fight press conference, conversation shifted to what would be next for UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones. He dispatched Chael Sonnen in the night's main event, suffering a gruesome broken toe in the process, but despite that, he came out looking just as strong as ever.

Sonnen thinks the fight that should happen is between Jones and a man he's faced twice in Anderson Silva, but he didn't believe the two would be calling each other up to make it happen. That's when Dana White interjected.

"Anderson called me tonight and wants a fight," White said. "I’m not going to tell you which fight he wants, but I’m going to get to work on it as soon as possible."

When asked whether that requested fight was either Jones or UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre, White said "yes."

Now, White later clarified that Silva needs to concentrate on his upcoming fight with Chris Weidman, as a loss in that could implode plans for a super fight. But a win over Weidman sets up a potentially major fight for the UFC in the latter half of 2013.

Penick's Analysis: I firmly believe that - provided Silva defeats Weidman and Jon Jones' toe is good to go - we'll be seeing Jones-Silva by November or December of this year. It's just the absolute right "super fight" to make. And as Jones wants to have his record-setting title defense, Silva can pop up to 205 lbs. and challenge for that belt. He's fought in the weight class before, it is THE super fight right now, and if they're going to put it together it only makes sense for Jones' title to be on the line at 205 lbs. Put that fight on their 20th anniversary card in November wherever they go with that, or even save it for New Year's Eve and a potential blockbuster year end event with a likely Ronda Rousey vs. Cat Zingano co-main event. It's not a guarantee right now, but I think that's where their heads are at going into this summer.

It happens if Silva beats Weidman. But of course Jones wants Gustaffson...

As much as I'd love for this fight to happen (for the match-up and for the sport in general), I really don't wanna see Anderson get beat down badly...and that's the most likely outcome.

This is assuming they can re-attach Bones' big toe.

He said he never boxed until about 5 years ago.
