Anderson Silva is willing to fight Jon Jones in New York at a catchweight of 190 lbs

Last week on the Joe Rogan Experience, Dana White said that Anderson Silva intentionally trolls the media because he gets a kick out of it. This may be another occurrence of a Silva troll job, if so then I want to be the first to say well done or its Portuguese equivalent: ‘bem feito.’ I learned that using Google Translate, a fabulous service that will eventually unemploy every foreign language teacher in the next decade. That’s just the future — whatever you’re currently doing will eventually be outsourced to a computer — even if you’re a porn star. Google Translate is also great if you want to discover what Anderson Silva regarding a potential super fight against Jon Jones at some point this year.

Brazil’s SportTV talked to Anderson Silva’s agent, Jorge Guimarães (a really cool guy, by the way) and he said although nothing is confirmed, Silva vs. Jones is on the horizon. Anderson Silva also believes the fight shouldn’t be for the belt (hence the catchweight). Jorge also confirmed that Anderson Silva will defend his title this Summer and a Jones/Silva superfight could happen later in the year, preferably in New York and only at a catchweight of 87kgs (which comes out to about 190 lbs).

If your Portuguese is up to par, check out the SportTV article with all the interesting details of the potential, and hypothetical, superfight Silva is offering Jones.
