UFC Champ Anderson Silva Addresses GSP and Jon Jones “Super Fights”


Anderson SilvaUFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has run up a remarkable record of 13 consecutive victories in the Octagon, maintains an overall record of 28-4, and is widely considered among the top two, if not the top spot, when it comes to who is the pound-for-pound best fighter in mixed martial arts.

Perhaps surprisingly, Silva doesn’t consider himself as the top dog, or even one of the top two.

He is currently slated to return to the Octagon at UFC 134 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in defense of his title against Yushin Okami, the last fighter to hold a win over Silva. Despite the scheduled rematch, Okami isn’t the opponent that Silva is constantly being asked about.

That honor is bestowed upon current UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. A “super fight” between the two has been on everyone’s minds for the past several months.

Silva, at the recent Super 7 question and answer session at UFC 129 in Toronto, addressed the possibility of someday facing St-Pierre, dubbing it “an honor.”

He also addressed the possibility of once again stepping up into the 205-pound division, possibly for another marquee match-up against a fighter like current light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Check out what Silva had to say in answer to Joe Rogan’s Super 7 questions in the video below…
