UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has long been a fan of Anderson Silva. With both fighters in Las Vegas to help promote the UFC’s upcoming schedule, “Bones” and “The Spider” decided to engage in a sparring session.

While there was previous talk of a potential super-fight between the two, that has been tabled since Silva lost the middleweight title to Chris Weidman and subsequent rematch. He will return to action this January at UFC 183, a few weeks after Jones, to face Nick Diaz. Jones meets Daniel Cormier for his title earlier in the month at UFC 182.
