"Nothing was said as far as when or where the match will take place. There is an idea floating around to try and put on the biggest show in company history at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas this fall. Several things would have to fall into place for this to happen, the key being Anderson Silva retaining the middleweight title against Chris Weidman, and not being banged up in the process. In addition, Jon Jones would have to be recovered from his own toe injury, and UFC would have to work out a deal to get the two of them to fight. Each has his own reasons, but neither has exactly clamored to fight the other. Having all those things fall into place makes this very much a longshot of actually happening.
 
The idea would be to have Silva vs. Jon Jones and Velasquez vs. Dos Santos at the stadium, in October, at the same time as the state fair of Texas, perhaps on 10/12 or 10/19. That much is known to be at least something talked about. With Madison Square Garden seeming more and more unlikely for November, this show could be billed as UFC 20th anniversary show, with the idea of trying to repeat the success of UFC 100."

No point in getting worked up about this, lots of things have to happen first and even if they do they still have to get both guys to say ok. Plus work out the money.

I hope its true cause it would be a huge event but I'm not getting my hopes up.

^ if you red inbetween the lines both guys have pretty much said ok.

Jones wants one more fight to break the record and then a "superfight".

Anderson just had an interview with the ny post and he said he now prefers jones over gsp and dana should make the fight.

“People ask me that all the time. This is what I believe. I believe my job is to put on fights that people want to see. I keep hearing that and enough people want to see it. I guess I’m gonna have to do it.”

GSP is barely admitting that he would fight A. Silva this year. What do you think he said three years ago when DFW asked him?

What will end up happening is the UFC really wants this fight, Jones/Silva want it, its closest its ever been to happening and is basically a lock to happen and then Weidman beats Silva in July.

Just when we might be so close to getting the huge super fight we've wanted for years, whether GSP/Silva or now Silva/Jones, finally we could get it and the one roadblock standing in the way ends up beating Silva.

This fight makes more sense, so it has a better chance of happening.

If this card happens I think I'll sob like a small child for a few days while rocking backwards and forwards with clenched fists. Then I'd cackle like a deranged maniac for the following few weeks. Lastly, I think I'd shit my pants non stop on the day of the fight.
Maybe this fight card shouldn't happen for the sake of my mental health :( Phone Post
