To the dismay of countless fans it looks like a “super-fight” between UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva and UFC light heavyweight title-holder Jon Jones will not be going down in 2012 if ever. The two talented competitors are easily among the Top 3 pound-for-pound fighters in MMA and are close enough in weight to make the match-up a reality. However, to hear Jones tell it, their personal relationship and professional respect will prevent the pairing from ever taking place.

“It’s not that he won’t fight me or I won’t fight him. To be dead honest, it’s ”“ we both have a lot to lose. And we both respect each other a lot and we are both striving for personal greatness. I don’t want to crap on his greatness; I don’t want him crapping on my greatness,” said Jones in an interview with ESPN Radio. “If we were in the same weight class, it would be inevitable but it’s like ”˜Dude, I’m dominating my weight class, you’re dominating your weight class.’ Some things were just not meant to be seen.”

Silva Not Looking to Retire Anytime Soon

“I respect Anderson Silva so much; I don’t want to be the guy to beat him. I don’t want to lose to him either; it’s a lose-lose situation,” the 24-year old concluded on the topic of tussling with Silva.

Up next for Jones is a September date with Dan Henderson while Silva is currently lacking a top contender but has options like Hector Lombard, Mark Munoz, and Michael Bisping to consider.
