Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE
A potential matchup between Anderson Silva and Jon Jones makes any UFC fan smile for days.
The two fighters are easily the most dominate athletes in the sport today, and with 14 straight title defenses between them, this superfight would surely have historic implications.
It would finally settle the dispute as to whether or not Jones is the fighter everybody thinks he is. It would finally test his chin, perseverance and ability to strike with someone just as elusive and unorthodox.
As for Silva, who has pleaded to Dana White not to push the idea of this fight, fighting Jones could be his going-out party.
It would be the biggest fight in UFC history and would easily surpass every pay-per-view record in existence.
Silva has said that fighting has never been about the money, but to make a boat load of cash and go out on top after defeating the No. 2 fighter in the world would be a storybook ending to a perfect career.
