It would be very interesting to see though. Jones doesn't like being on the inside but to get silva down, thats what you have to do. We also saw the success machida had standing with jones, which raises questions about how he would deal with silva.

I still wanna see jones face machida again :P
Uh. Actually Sonnen is a Greco Roman wrestler. He has wrestled freestyle and has a viciouse double leg, but most of his wrestling accomplishments are in Greco Roman.

With Jones range and with the leverage he would have over Silva. I think Jon Jones would beat Silva easily.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen
