Anderson Silva appears to be more interested in the "Winable" superfight against Georges St. Pierre than facing Jon Jones at Light Heavyweight according to an interview with Esportes.r7.com: (translated by BE's own Tom Mendes)
On fighting Jones:

"No chance, he’s in a different weight class, we are friends and we won’t fight each other."

On fighting GSP:

"There is a chance there, everything will depend on our results. It depends on him winning at UFC 129 and me winning in August (against Yushin Okami). And from there, who knows, this fight could take place."

So Jon Jones is too big to fight but GSP is supposed to fight Anderson?

It sounds like he i afraid of Jones. It's really a shame because I was looking forward to this super fight. I think Shogun must of told him not to fight Jones..

Then why is he supposedly going up to LHW?

That's some real bs. The size difference between GSP and Anderson is about the same as the one between Anderson and Jones

I'm thinking Bones may be the only fighter that even slightly intimidates Silva. If they did fight, it would probably be the biggest fight in MMA up to this point. It NEEDS to happen.

I thought that rumor was debunked?

Anyway, this seems very uncharacteristic for Anderson. Its just one sentence from him. I expect either more explanation or a retraction out of him. This is not the Anderson I know and love.

Probably because Jones hasnt opened his mouth toward Anderson yet, give Jones time, he will eventually want to fight him and say something Anderson doesnt like or Jones will fight Machida and Anderson will claim that he "broke the code"

Big Nog just recently said that after Okami Silva is moving up to 205.

Cluck, cluck, cluck.

If you take away the author's slant you just have Anderson Silva saying "He's in a different weight class, we're not going to fight."

If Jon Jones had said anything about a fight with Anderson Silva, than it would be him ducking. But this is a reporter asking about a Dream Match-up, and Anderson Silva hitting him with the obvious.
