He might get him down a few times, but he will never get out of Jones' guard in any case because of those damn long legs
Yeah but silva had hold of the fence keeping him standing in the second round. For something like 20 seconds if i can remember correctly.
Chael will close the distance and get him down I think. Will be interesting to see jones off his back. You would think Silvas Jits game would be better then Jones with all the Nog training. For all we know though Jones being the freak that he is could be much harder to deal with on the ground.
