Jones: Weidman isn’t superfight worthy yet, but Cain is

Saturday, February 08, 2014

For years there has been superfight talk in the UFC generally revolving around GSP and Anderson Silva. With the former on indefinite leave and the latter recovering from a horrific leg break, UFC light heavyweight Jon Jones is now half of the biggest superfight in the sport, whether he goes down to Chris Weidman, or up to Cain Velasquez.

Jones addressed the issue in a recent interview that appeared on Inside MMA.

“A lot of people are starting to mention Chris Weidman's name,” said the champion. “I think in order for it to be a superfight, Chris Weidman needs to get his name a little bit bigger and prove himself against some other world champions. That being said, I think Cain Velasquez would be the only guy that would be considered a superfight.”
