Jon Jones reacts to Silva KO
Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones, the super-fight UFC fans dream about.
We were close. So very, very close.
And then the unthinkable happened. Anderson Silva, the untouchable force of nature that had terrorized the UFC's middleweight (and occassionally light heavyweight) division, was knocked clean out by a thunderous left hook from Chris Weidman.
UFC Ultimate Insider was at the fight and had 'Bones' mic'd up alongside Urijah Faber to get his in-person reactions to everything going on in the fight. In all likelihood, they probably were not expecting to get the absolute shock and awe reaction that they did when the unthinkable happened.
Instead of taking on Silva, now Jon Jones faces Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165.
Live UFC 165 coverage begins Saturday, September 21 at 8/5pm ET/PT on FOX Sports 1, followed by the main card on PPV.
