Fans and media speculated about a future super fight between the two if they continued to clean out their divisions. Unfortunately new contenders pop up all the time for Jones and Silva has lost his last two fights at middleweight.</p>
Regardless of the logistics of the fight ever happening, it's not something Jon Jones is interested in:
"I would never want to fight Anderson. Never. Ever," Jones said at Monday's UFC media day.
Jones, who said he hopes to train with Silva at the TUF gym while both are in town, explains why he considers the bout off-limits.
"I just look up to him so much," Jones said. "And he's just...I don't have many people that I've looked up to in my lifetime and think, ‘wow, how cool would it be to be that guy.' Look at what he's done. Jordan, LeBron, Anderson, Kobe, I consider them all in the same type of class. The Jeters. Athletes of that caliber don't come around that often. I don't want to be the guy to beat him. Even though that's happened already, I wouldn't want to lose to him and I don't want to beat him. "
