I believe chael's wrestling ability has been over estimated because he fought in a division of non wrestlers at MW.
we just saw him get out wrestled by jones and jones hits much harder than chael and is much bigger. His size, length, brute strength and wrestling will overcome silva and he has the power that Chael lacked to finish it on the mat. TKO over silva. personally i think jones is #1 p4p.
gsp is faster and a smarter fighter than chael with good sub defense and great wrestling. he also rules a division of wrestlers and out wrestles them all which makes me think he may have better wrestling than chael. UD over silva.
silva would have a better chance against GSP than jones and could possibly win but jones is too much of a match for him.
but ..... im sure silva saw all kinda holes in JBJ top game ... ill call it now Anderson via 2nd round sub most likely a triagle or armbar
