Silva’s manager disagrees.
“I think that’s ridiculous,” Ed Soares told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show on Monday. “I think the superfights are still on the table. I think right now the superfights are in the future, but right now what should be on everyone’s mind should be the rematch with Chris Weidman.”
Silva will meet Weidman again Dec. 28 at UFC 168.
“If he comes back and beats Chris Weidman,” Soares said, “I don’t see the reason why the superfights can’t happen.”
Besides bouts against Jon Jones and St. Pierre, there could also be a matchup against boxing great Roy Jones Jr. Silva has wanted the fight for years, and Soares confirmed it remains a possibility.
“It’s true,” the manager said. “I mean, it could happen. Anything can happen.”
