Anderson Silva Trainer: Jon Jones Bout Should Be Retirement Fight

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Rogerio Camoes, one of Anderson Silva’s trainers, believes the UFC middleweight champion should face Jon Jones.

Camoes, however, sees it more as a culminating bout in the career of “The Spider.”

“I would like to see this fight against Jones,” said Camoes, during a recent interview with Tatame. “I wanted to see this as his last career fight. He wins and retires.”

While Silva recently agreed to a 10-fight extension with the UFC and seems intent on fulfilling that obligation, the window to meet the UFC light heavyweight champion is likely closing by the day.

Jones seems poised on one more 205-pound fight before heading up to the ranks of heavyweight.
