UFC Quick Quote: Jones Jr. before St. Pierre for "The Spider"


"St. Pierre is a great fighter, but I would never put on weights to face the champion of [another] category. My weight is 98kg and I lose weight to fight at 83kg and I would never make that. But people talks what they want and if this fight really happen, I hope to make a good performance. By now I am in fattening stage (laughter). I don’t have a bout scheduled and we are trying to make this fight against Roy Jones Jr. This is a personal wish"

UFC middleweight champion Anderson "The Spider" Silva responds to comments made by UFC welterweight champion Georges "Rush" St. Pierre in an interview last week about the prospect of a Spider/Rush superfight.
