Jon Jones has pretty much wiped the floor with some of the best fighters in the world. Anderson Silva has too. The debate will rage on until the Super Fight is made, but it looks like the young Jones has grown up a lot in a short amount of time. When asked if he has surpassed Anderson on the P4P list and this is how he replied:
“No,” replied the 25-year-old New Yorker.
“That would be extremely disrespectful of me to try to disregard what Anderson has done outside of the Octagon and inside of the Octagon,” he said.
“I celebrated my two year anniversary of being champion this year, and Anderson has been doing it for about six. That’s phenomenal. That’s phenomenal pressure that he’s been able to uphold and continue moving forward with it, so I admire him so much,” said Jones.
“Yes, I’ve had some great fights, and I’ve had a great career, but Anderson is still an amazing guy. He’s still my idol and I’m not going to disregard what he’s done.” Thanks to MMAWeekly.com for the scoop.
