Morning Report: Anderson Silva Talks Old Age, Jon Jones Verbally Spars With Rashad Evans

Feb 17, 2012 - It's strange to think how much time has passed since Anderson Silva first introduced himself to western audiences with a glorified mercy killing of Chris Leben at UFC Ultimate Fight Night 5. None could have predicted the artistry that took place in the cage that night, just as none could have foreseen the run of brillance, and sometimes absurdity, that would follow over the next six years.
But that time has passed, and at 36 years old, Silva's professional mortality is quickly becoming a reality. Check out what "The Spider" had to on the subject, along with who he'd prefer to face in a career-ending superfight on today's Morning Report.

Anderson Silva would like to fight Georges St-Pierre, but not Jon Jones. Silva was surprisingly honest when asked about his advancing age, Chael Sonnen, and which superfight remains a possibility.
Dana White says all main events to be five rounds after Ellenberger vs. Sanchez. Whiteannounced a change in policy after UFC on FUEL's main event left fans wanting more.
UFC 145 press conference video. Jon Jones and Rashad Evans kicked off their UFC 145 promotional tour with the official pre-fight presser in Atlanta, Georgia.
Jon Jones and Rashad Evans reignite rivalry. The two former friends lost themselves trading barbs on Thursday afternoon, but both men eventually agreed on one thing -- their title tilt won't last five rounds.
Waiting game continues for Dan Henderson. Dana White discussed the future of Dan Henderson and his strange spot in championship purgatory.
There's a lot more media (vids, tweets, etc) at the end of the article, which can be seen in its entirety here:
