Anderson Silva Will Meet Jon Jones….For 50-Percent Of The UFC

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva made an interesting comment during a recent interview in Brazil regarding a potential super-fight with Jon Jones, the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion.

The question (about facing Jones) would have to be made to Dana White. Let’s ask if he’ll give me 50-percent of the UFC. If he will, maybe this fight will happen.

Silva was obviously being a little sly with the remark, as the UFC is currently owned by Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta, White and the Abu Dhabi-based Flash company. The Feritta brothers alone own 40.5-percent.

“The Spider” added that he has other projects on his mind right now, including the opening of a mixed martial arts academy in Los Angeles and that he wants to “take some air, spend time with family. I have more to do than take punches to the face.”

So, it appears White and the UFC will head back to the drawing board if they truly want to pair Silva and Jones up.
