Alistair Overeem: Jones vs Silva is not going to happenPosted on July 23, 2012, 01:55 PM by Mike Searson
Alistair Overeem was recently called on to judge the K-1 tryouts in Southern California. MMA Interviews spoke with him about his return to the Octagon, a potential Jon Jones matchup with Anderson Silva and his picks for UFC 150.
On his return to the Octagon, The Reem is hoping for it to happen in December and while he does not know whom he will face, he says he will take on anyone: "I'm looking to return in December. It looks like they're going to match Cain with Dos Santos first, but you know, I'm a fighter. I've fought for 15 years now, no matter who they put in front of me."
On the possibility of a Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva fight, he doesn't see it happening: "I spoke to Jon. He said, 'No, I don't want to fight him because he's my mentor', this and that. So, that fight is not going to happen. Unfortunately for the fans, and unfortunately for me because I would like to see that."
