Dana White: Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones Will "Absolutely Happen"

| by

UFC president Dana White was asked during a recent fan chat if he can put UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones inside the same Octagon. White, as he said before, made a bold proclamation.

"I said it in Brazil, and I'll say it again: Hell yes, they will (face each other)," White said. "I guarantee you that fight will absolutely happen."

In recent weeks, both Silva and Jones have grown more open to the possible super-fight. "The Spider," however, remains focused in on a match with Georges St-Pierre, the UFC welterweight champ, first. White said that both matches would be great for the promotion.

"(Silva) can fight Georges St-Pierre, and he can fight Jon Jones," White added. "They both make sense."
