Jon Jones Hopes Anderson Silva ‘just stays away’ From MMA
full story
“To see such a magnificent career and legacy get tarnished by two losses, two kind of flukish losses – I wouldn’t call the first one a fluke – it sucks,” he said. “It leaves a weird taste in your mouth, like it’s not supposed to end that way. What I’m hoping is that people remember Anderson for all the magnificent things he’s done, and all the lives he’s touched, and all the people he’s inspired, and I’m hoping that Anderson just stays away from the sport and continues to be an inspiration outside of the octagon… Not fight again. Anderson can do seminars, he can do motivational speaking, he can help all the kids in Brazil, I mean he’s such an idol. His greatness has just begun, but I think in the Octagon, I think it’s been already fun.”

Anthony Leone replaces injured Rafael Silva, faces champ Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 111
(mmajunkie.com)
Bellator MMA’s 2013 Summer Series bantamweight tournament winner Rafael “Morcego” Silva (21-3 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) has been forced to withdraw from a planned fight with champ Eduardo Dantas (15-3 MMA, 5-0 BMMA), and Anthony Leone(13-6 MMA, 3-3 BMMA) has agreed to take his place. Bellator officials today announced that the man Silva beat in the tournament final, Leone, agreed to take the fight when Season 9 bantamweight tournament winner Joe Warren was forced to turn down the opportunity. “This was a difficult process with Silva suffering injury, but when we considered all our options, we felt like this decision made the most sense,” Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney stated. “After we heard the news on Silva, we immediately made the call to our other bantamweight tournament winner Joe Warren. Joe informed us he was still rehabbing a previous knee injury and would be unable to compete on the March 7 card, but he will be 100 percent ready to go for his originally scheduled fight in May.”
