“My first goal is the Georges St-Pierre fight, the super fight,” he said. “The second goal? Maybe Jon Jones. But this is not my decision. This is Dana [White's] decision.” they asked andy the day of the GSP fight the question.

http://www.bjpenn.com/anderson-silva-says-he-will-fight-whomever-the-ufc-wants-gsp-or-jon-jones/

the article also says they think the change of heart of fighting jones has to with jones saying he does not want to be the one who will beat andy.

so now it is on GSP and jones, if these fights happen

Jon Jones vs Anderson Silva, huh?

I'll take Jones by UD maybe?

If Jones finished Silva I expect it would be by elbows/GnP when Silva is on his back. Chael hit Anderson lots from guard, Jones could probably do something similar - but more damaging.

Nothing would make me happier than watching Anderson knock out Jones... In my mind, Silva is unquestionably the better striker. Jones has the reach though, and he uses it well in his striking and for gaining leverage in grappling.

I just want to see Jones try a spinning back elbow on Anderson and watch "The Spider" matrix out of the way and jaw jack Jonny. No matter how it goes down, or if this fight ever happens, I will go to bed every night praying for Anderson to win.

I really hope they go the Jones route. It makes more sense and is a much more compelling match up.

I don't think Silva's too enthusiastic to fight Jones. If Chael could take Silva down and control him, Jones will do worse. Silva won't get the decision or the submission. TKO's his only option and a smart Jones can negate that.

GSP, on the other hand, is a smaller Chael. And yet, the name value is even bigger. I see why Silva's more into this fight.

I think he beats GSP 9/10 times and Jones 2/10.
