White ‘guarantees’ Silva vs. Jones will happen
Tonight (Oct. 30, 2012), White held true to form in a live chat with fans that was hosted online by MetroPCS, which we covered with live update right here earlier this evening. When White was asked about a potential super fight between his Middleweight and Light Heavyweight champions, he was unwavering with his response.
“I guarantee you Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones will absolutely happen,” he said. “It’s happening. It will happen.”
No potential dates, events or venues were addressed, but one would have to deduce that it would go down sooner rather than later based in large part on Silva’s advanced position in his illustrious mixed martial arts (MMA) career. At 37 years young and with a perfect record (16-0) inside the Octagon, the lethal Brazilian has little left to accomplish before calling it quits.
