With former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva losing to Chris Weidman this weekend at UFC 162, that killed all super-fight discussions.
However, Weidman stated in an interview with ESPN that he is “1000 percent in” for a super-fight with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
Jones must have heard about this interview and he took to Twitter himself to give a response.
How's that man considered a super fight!? Just stop

If this super-fight were in fact going to come to fruition, it wouldn’t be for some time. Jones is set to face Alexander Gustafsson on September 21 at UFC 165 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
