The UFC Rumored to Have Interest Booking Silva vs. Jones Super Fight in October at Cowboys Stadium

According to fight business uber reporter Dave Meltzer, the UFC is considering making a super fight between middleweight champion Anderson Silva and light heavyweight champion Jon Jones happen this fall in Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas. Of course, Silva would have to beat Chris Weidman this July and come out relatively unscathed for the super fight to remain viable and Jones himself would have to of healed from his grisly toe injury.

After a recent visit to the doctor, it looks like Jones could be healthy in time for a super fight. More on that later in the post. First, the scuttlebutt.

“There is an idea floating around to try and put on the biggest show in company history at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas this fall,” Meltzer reports in his Wrestling Observer newsletter.

“The idea would be to have Silva vs. Jon Jones and Velasquez vs. Dos Santos at the stadium, in October, at the same time as the state fair of Texas, perhaps on 10/12 or 10/19. That much is known to be at least something talked about. With Madison Square Garden seeming more and more unlikely for November, this show could be billed as UFC 20th anniversary show, with the idea of trying to repeat the success of UFC 100.”

Of course, Chris Weidman will have his say in this whole situation, but it has to make him nervous hearing that the UFC may have a mega-event that would make them huge money planned if he is to lose. As for Jones, he just met with his foot doctor and tweeted that he now has to decide whether to jump into a training camp in three weeks or to let the toe heal more.

Evidently, Jones has gotten at least preliminary clearance to resume full training in three weeks. As for Anderson Silva, he isn’t thinking much about Jones or even Georges St. Pierre.

During a recent interview with the New York Post, the middleweight champion who will defend his title at UFC 162 in July made clear that he is focused on…Roy Jones Jr.? Oh, for goodness sakes, not this again. Silva likes to have fun with the media from time to time and hopefully that’s what he’s doing this time around.

Anderson first talked about fighting Roy Jones about four years ago, when the former boxing pound for pound king was already well past his prime. Bringing it up again now just seems mean spirited.

Jones Jr. loses more than he wins these days and is getting badly hurt as he sticks around too long. Anderson says that he is much more interested in fighting Jones Jr. than either St. Pierre or Jones.

“That’s something I’d really be interested in,” Silva told the Post.

“Maybe [UFC president] Dana [White] should do this fight.”

Silva said he’d like to fight Jones Jr. in one MMA fight and one boxing fight. I’m not sure Roy would do well in either one at this point in his career.

What do you say, nation? Will Anderson get past Weidman and if he does, will Uncle Dana be able to convince he and Jones to each rush into the biggest fight of their careers for a mega event in the fall?

What weight? I've gotta roll with the spider although I think no other lhw or under could beat Jon Jones, ever. Sorry guys gustaf would get wrecked. Hendo possibly, but piss poor last outing. Boxing fucked up by waiting on may-paq, this is now!

This fight could happen, but DW will have to show Jones and Silva the money, serious money.
