By vanquishing chief rival Chael Sonnen at Saturday night's UFC 148 event, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (32-4 MMA, 15-0 UFC) moved one step closer to cleaning out the company's 185-pound division.
In the past, every Silva win meant post-fight questions regarding a potential bout with welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, but nowadays, MMA fans and pundits alike only want to know if "The Spider" will ever face 205-pound titleholder Jon Jones.
Both Silva and Jones have expressed no interest in such a superfight, but UFC president Dana White doesn't seem quite so sure.
"He said he wouldn't fight Chael again, either," White said with a smile following Saturday night's post-event press conference.
