Anderson Silva is forging ahead with his commitments and routine in the United States. Over there, the fighters was interviewed by the website MMA Convert, and the Spider didn’t discard the possibility but seemed not to keen on the fight everyone has on their minds at the moment: a showdown with new light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

“I don’t know. . . I’m happy in my category, where I have my own problems. I don’t plan to move up, I don’t know. . .” says the beast, who heaped praise on Shogun’s toppler.

“Jon Jones is incredible, he’s the best in the division and should be champion for a long time.”

Silva also has his eye on the George Saint-Pierre-Jake Shields fight. According to UFC president Dana White, GSP may be a future opponent of the Spider’s.

“It’s a great fight, Georges is great and his opponent too.”
