Thursday, May 23, 2013

Super fights have been a much talked about topic in mixed martial arts this year. The most talked about super fight had been Georges St-Pierre vs. Anderson Silva, but know it seems like more people are interested in seeing Silva fight lightheavyweight champion Jon Jones. UFC President Dana White recently spoke with CBS Atlanta and re-affirmed that we could see that super fight in 2013:

“Silva has a fight coming up on July 6, he’s fighting Chris Weidman. Many people think this is a very serious threat to his record and his title and everything else. But if he gets past this test with Weidman, we could see this [Jones] super fight this year.”
