Anderson Silva talks Chael Sonnen

UFC president Dana White does not feel like the door has been completely closed on a Anderson Silva v Jon Jones fight.

After beating Chael Sonnen on Saturday at UFC 148, middleweight king Silva was asked if he would consider facing Jones, replying in the negative with a smile on his face.

However, White was in mischievous mood, hinting he still feels the contest could happen.

"He said he wouldn't fight Chael Sonnen, either," White said. "He's such a unique individual to deal with. You know me. I've butted heads with this guy, that guy, we fight and we argue.

"But it's such a different process when I'm dealing with this guy. I respect him so much, and I swear to God, it's like dealing with an artist or some crazy, talented actor. That's what he's like."
