Anderson Silva Says Jon Jones “Taught Him Things”

UFC 182 is coming up quickly and the bets are being made for the winner of the grudge match main event between light heavyweight champ Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier. “Jones recently got a glowing review from middleweight champion and GOAT contender Anderson Silva.

Jones and Silva were working together recently and did some training, we got nothing but a few pictures but during a recent press conference, Silva had no problems praising Jones. Anderson said the young champion taught him some things and that he has the potential to become the biggest American star in all of MMA.

Heres what he had to say:

“It was a normal training, he did a few things, and I did a few things. It was a tough training for both of us. We learned a lot. He taught me a few things I didn’t know, I gave him a few tips. I like him a lot, and it was cool. He has his history, he’s building [his career], He’s young and has everything to become the biggest name of the sport in his country.”
