Ed Soares: Anderson Silva's physique is closer to GSP than to Jon JonesPosted on November 8, 2012, 03:15 PM by Anton Gurevich
Anderson Silva's manager, Ed Soares, has once again answered questions on the rumored superfight between "The Spider" and Georges St. Pierre. This time Soares discussed Silva's size advantage over Georges St. Pierre, claiming that the Brazilian legend is much closer to GSP than to Jon Jones.
Silva's victory over Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153 has imediatly sparked a debate over a potential superfight with Jon Jones, while the UFC President Dana White has guaranteed on numerous occasions that this fight will take place sooner or later. However, both Silva and Jon Jones are currently citing their friendship as the main obstacle in such match-up. Silva even jokingly stated that he would fight Jon Jones for 50% of the UFC.
With St. Pierre the situation is a little bit different. Anderson Silva wants to fight GSP, and will be in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, to 'cheer' for the French-Canadian. Unfortunately for MMA fans around the world, Carlos Condit might have plans of his own.
"Jon Jones is a tough fight, but Georges St. Pierre is a tough fight too. There are both tough fighters. When you are looking at Anderson's stats, he's closer to Georges St. Pierre's stats as far size, as far as reach, as far as age, as far as everything... there's less difference in weight, height and reach, and all that. Maybe with height he's closer to Jon Jones. In every other way, George is closer to Anderson than Anderson to Jon Jones."
