Jon Jones spoke about his willingness to take on UFC superfights in the future, just not if it's against Anderson Silva. Jon Jones has beaten most of the top light heavyweights the UFC has had for the past few years, and according to the dominant champ, he would be willing to look towards having super fights after a couple more wins. Jones walks around at 230 lbs, and if all goes according to plan, he would conceivably bulk up a bit to 240 lbs and look for heavyweight bouts in the future. MMA Fi read news >>

Traditionally, superfights are discussed in terms of dueling champions from separate weight classes, and, like all things with loose interpretations, people tend to get all freaking argumentative about it. Not so long ago, the superest superfight conceivable was UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, a couple of surhumans. With the onset of age and vulnerability -- as well as the reluctance of St-Pierre to bolt 170 -- "super" transferred to Silva an read news >>
