Anderson Silva Doesn't See Any Brazilian Who Can Beat Jon Jones

Portal TV had a chance to catch up with Anderson Silva and it on a variety of topics. Silva says that he still hasn't recovered from his shoulder injury and is simply doing enough working out to stay in shape. But, he also said that he doesn't believe that there is a Brazilian fighter who can beat Jon Jones right now.

Here's the video:


Translated quote (via Tom Mendes):

Jon Jones is having a good phase, he's improving a lot. He's getting more and more experienced, he's very young, but he's getting more experienced. He's making his opponents fall into his game. He knows how to use his size very well. There's not much to say about Jon Jones. I don't see any Brazilian in conditions to face him, even more so because Brazilians don't tend to completely study what happens in there, there needs to be more studying done by the Brazilians in that division so that they can understand what really is going on in there. But it's hard for me to say this, because I'm Brazilian and I wish there was a Brazilian with the conditions to beat Jon Jones, but, this is a personal opinion of mine, I don't see anyone in Brazil that can beat him, at least not for now.
