Even if Jon Jones dropped weight, Anderson Silva says 'there's no way' he would fight him

Esther Lin/MMAfighting

Keep dreaming fight fans, because Anderson Silva says fighting Jon Jones will never be a reality, even if "Bones" drops weight.

Get it through your head people, Anderson Silva will never fight Jon Jones.

Even though Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White feels a much-anticipated super fight between his Middleweight and Light Heavyweight Champions makes sense and eventually has to happen, "The Spider," doesn't share those sentiments, reiterating today (Oct., 11, 2012) at the UFC 153 press conference the fight will never see the light of day -- even if "Bones" drops weight to meet him somewhere in the middle.

"Look, there are many possibilities, but fighting Jon Jones is one that is not possible, there's no way."

Both have defeated all of the top contenders in their respective divisions, with Silva even jumping up to the 205-pound division for new ventures, as he is doing this weekend (Oct., 13, 2012) at UFC 153 against Stephan Bonnar. However, challenging "Bones" is something that he has no interest in doing---ever.

The sooner we all realize that, perhaps the better.
