Default Silva Says That He's Open to Fighting Jones at 192 lb. Catchweight

Quote:
"The lecture was held last Wednesday in Las Vegas, and was attended by Anderson, former player Rai, the announcer of TV Globo Galv„o Bueno and his son, the pilot of Stock Car Caca Bueno. They answered the questions of those present, the company's employees, and at some point the fighter was asked about the matchup against Jon Jones. Besides confirming their willingness to face it and say that this should occur in 2013, said the Spider to be fighting at a weight of about 87kg intermediate and not worth nor his middleweight belt (up to 83.9 kg) nor the light heavyweight belt (up to 93kg) Jones. Also according to the Brazilian, the idea is that the event takes place in New York City, where it has already exited the release of the State of New York to perform MMA tournaments there. If not, is there a chance of the stage being a soccer stadium in Brazil. The story was told by an official of that great Brazilian company the details of the lecture."

Total non-starter seeing as Jones is cutting from 220+ already.

Be difficult to get Jones to get down to that weight, but not impossible.

If you think about it, Anderson's preferred weight is 185 Jones preferred weight is 205 so it is actually fair in that sense.

Of course Anderson has fought at 205 before but we know that's not his preferred weight.

Anderson has fought at 205 against two of the biggest guys in the division in recent years and stopped them both in the first round. This catchweight is a ridiculous suggestion especially considering all of the shit that Jones has gotten from fans for supposedly being too big for LHW. Now, it's accepted that he can cut most of the way down to the MW limit without issue?

He has fought at 205 comfortably, Jones is big already at 205. 192 would seem very difficult and purely designed to give Silva an advantage. I'd be impressed and surprised if Jones accepted.

You don't care if Jones shows up to the weigh ins looking like a skeleton because of an unreasonable catchweight and gasses in the first minute of the fight?

Jones has never pursued the fight, and neither did Anderson until very recently. The demand for it has largely come from fans and the MMA media.

Just because Anderson had the balls to go up and fight at 205 before, does not mean he and only he should sacrifice to make this fight. So if Anderson had never gone up before, the catchweight would then be reasonable? The fact that Anderson has fought at 205 before should have NO bearing at all on this matchup. The fact is, Middleweight is his best weight, LHW is Jones best weight. Going up in weight is as much a sacrifice as having to cut a little more, different, but on the same level. They should both sacrifice.

I do think the Catchweight should be at about 195-198 though.
