Dana White talks GSP vs. Jones, Silva

Monday, September 10, 2012

UFC President Dana White today told HDNet’s “Inside MMA” that not only is an Anderson Silva vs. Georges St-Pierre bout looking more and more likely if GSP can defeat Carlos Condit, but that Silva vs. Jon Jones could very well happen, too.

“As you start to get to a point where Anderson is in his career – he’s beat everybody, he’s broken every record in UFC history – if he wins against Georges St-Pierre, I guarantee you he’ll be eyeballing Jon Jones next,” White said.

“Anderson and ‘GSP’ were talking like they didn’t want to fight. Now if he beats Condit, meaning Georges St-Pierre, he wins this Carlos Condit fight, he’s saying he wants to fight Anderson, and Anderson is saying he wants to fight him. That fight will probably happen first.”

“Anderson and Jones are saying, ‘Hey, we’re buddies,’ or ‘We don’t want to fight’ or whatever the deal is. But [Jones] didn’t want to fight Rashad either, and that happened.”
