UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has taken GSP's place in the super-fight that MMA fans have been pushing for, as everyone begins discussing Jones vs. UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
Silva took care of Chael Sonnen Saturday night in the main event of UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II, scoring a second round knockout over the man who nearly derailed him two years ago. For Jones, he awaits a September meeting with Dan Henderson.
During the post-fight press conference Saturday evening, "The Spider" said he had no real interest in moving up to 205 and taking on Jones. On Twitter, "Bones" said the same thing.
"I guess Anderson said he had no interest in fighting me at tonight's press conference," Jones posted, "I feel the same way about him. Nothing but respect."
Jones was in attendance, as Silva gave him a handshake prior to stepping inside the Octagon. One light heavyweight did offer up his services to meet Silva, as ex-champion Rashad Evans made a plea for a title fight at 185.
