Both Silva and Jones were limited to one fight in 2015 due to well documented reasons. But, now Silva is scheduled to fight Michael Bisping on February 27th, and Jones is expected to face Daniel Cormier in early 2016.
Recently Jones tweeted out a short clip of him shadow boxing with Silva, and as a result, “The Spider” was asked about “Bones” during a recent media call. Silva offered this statement (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“Big storms are coming,” Silva said. “That’s all I have to say. Big storms are coming. Everyone has to get ready.”
That could very well be the case. Particularly with Jones, who certainly was at the peak of his powers before he was stripped of the light-heavyweight title.
