Football has the Superbowl, humankind has Superman, and the UFC wants to make a superfight, between Anderson Silva and Jon Jones, or Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre.

Post fight, Chael Sonnen called out Anderson Silva and Jon Jones for not pressing for a superfight.

"These guys should be calling Dana right now, begging him to fight each other, and it's not going to go that way," said Sonnen. "You've got these two guys, and they're great, but they're a couple of chickens. They should be calling each other out. They should grab the mic and say, 'I want to fight that guy. I don't want the debate. I want to figure this out. Give me a date; give me a time.'

"But it won't happen that way. Dana's going to have to call these guys, and they're going to have to dangle a carrot, and they're going to want to negotiate. We're in the fight business. If you don't want to fight, don't raise your hand."

The man in the middle is Anderson Silva, who first has to fight Chris Weidman at UFC 162 on July 6 in Las Vegas.

And post fight Saturday night, UFC president Dana White said that Anderson Silva had called him.

"Anderson called and wants a fight," said White. While White would not say who Silva wants, he did confirm it was Jones or GSP.

"Anderson is the key to the whole puzzle," said White. "If Weidman beats Anderson, it blows the whole superfight concept."

So what do you think?

Will the superfight happen? And if so between who?

And should Jon Jones and Anderson Silva simply step up and say I want to auperfight?

obviously Anderson would prefer to fight GSP....he's way bigger than him

instead of Jones....who it seems to me is bigger than Silva

Chael's a 100% correct. Sadly I don't think we'll ever see Jones vs Silva.

If it makes you feel any better, that was likely the last title shot he talks himself into!

That's exactly my point.

Maybe Anderson and Jones don't feel confident enough to call each other out yet because they're not 100% sure they can win.

Maybe Chael should take note and shut his mouth so he doesn't look silly when he loses in embarrassing fashion. Phone Post 3.0

Chael is saying exactly what Dana can't say himself. If Chael can goad them into a fight then he will be getting some bonus pay.

"Maybe Chael should take note and shut his mouth so he doesn't look silly when he loses in embarrassing fashion."

Exactly, Jon Jones plus Anderson Silva both have said that they don't mind fighting each other and that's all that counts. It's up to the UFC to make it happen.

Remember this is a Sport not WWE. Chael Sonnen will go down in history as being a guy with a lot of mouth but nothing to back it up while Jon Jones and Anderson Silva will be recognized as being both the Greatest plus Innovators of the Sport.

He still got in the cage with them and made the attempt. Respect that at least. I get not liking his schtick but the man picked 3 fights with 2 of the best fighters in the world. Takes a bit of balls imo.

andy said combat can happen just so people would leave him alone...i can say alot of things can happen,doesent meant i reaaly want them to or that its going to...just that it can happen.

andy wants no part of this and he might not make it past chris any way.

Warrenpeace - Pretty easy position to take for a guy like chael with nothing to lose that continues to talk his way into fights he should never be getting.

Hey chael, these guys are real talents with real legacies and a lot to lose. Not everyone can get their asses handed to the, fight after fight yet line up for a big payday because they run their mouth wwe style.

This. You also don't see GSP in a hurry to even fight outside his weight class, let alone entertain a superfight.

People who have nothing to lose tend to be allot less measured in words and "braver".

If every superfight just proves the smaller guy shouldn't have left his weight class, then i don't want to see none.

That said, if it happens, Jones will "Chael Sonnen" Anderson Silva harder than Sonnen could have, ever.

Chael has a point.

Chael also has an uncanny knack to keeping himself in the discussion even after he losses badly.

He is a smart crafty businessman. As someone in business, i have big respect for him. He is creating a future path for himself in the business side after retiring. And certainly as a commentator/personality.

Most of the fighters arent that good at business or as interesting to listen to.

Chael will be part of the game for years and years, i predict

People need to remember this isn't boxing. In boxing, the heavier guy usually has a big speed disadvantage but let me just say that Oscar De La Hoya vs Manny Pacquiao would probably have a different ending if Oscar could mount Manny and rain elbows on him.

Then there's the age factor. Anderson Silva is too old school to even think about it but being the older, slower and smaller fighter against another world champion isn't gonna make winning any easier.

Lastly, as I said before many times, people who want to see this are GSP fans DESPERATE for him to somehow take the easy road to the #1 p4p place and then retire. The thing is, Jones is #2 p4p behind Silva, it's not GSP anymore so GSP would have to beat Jones too and good luck beating a 25 year old Jones.

If GSP is smart he'd take the Silva fight before Jones takes it, then he has a chance. If he doesn't he'll never reach that peak. Nobody remembers seconds for long, just saying.

So they might lose...big deal.

Champions should only take fights they are pretty much guaranteed to win?

"GSP would have to beat Jones to"?

LOL!

Why not Cain?

P4P#1 is entirely worthless, same goes for the ever moving GOAT.

If Anderson wants to fight Jones or GSP wants to fight Anderson, it will be awesome.
