Soares: Silva can beat Jon Jones

Monday, October 28, 2013

Prior to losing the middleweight title, the big super fight on the table was Anderson Silva versus Jon Jones. Silva however was KOd by Weidman, but will have a rematch with Weidman in December. Long time manager Ed Soares is confident that not only will Silva regain the middleweight title, but would like to see the super fight with Jones:

“I believe Anderson is the best fighter on the planet, period. Any weight class. I believe he has a bigger danger to any fighter he faces than any fighter has towards him. Can he be beat? Of course he can be beat. Anybody can be beat, but you put him against any fighter in any weight class and I think he has a better chance of beating them than they do beating him. I think he’ll beat him. I do think Anderson can beat Jon Jones. Not taking anything away from Jon Jones. Incredible athlete, but he doesn’t have the experience and I think a well-trained Anderson Silva would beat Jon Jones.”
