Bones is much bigger then Silva.
Andersons last fight at LHW he weighed in at 202lbs. No weight cutting and no weight put on after the weigh ins. By comparison, Jones weighs well over 220lbs on fight night.
That people can dismiss giving up 20 pounds to Bones as if its nothing? Fecking absurd.
Anderson fought Bonnar on relative short notice. Still in his Middle weight cut. His other 2 LHW fights were well planned he he did have to cut weight. Now im not an MMA reporter, doctor, Andersons trainer or any of that. But throughout my MMA fanship ive heard consistantly Anderson walks around in the 210-220 range and Bones has weighed 232 at his heaviest when he was 3 fights into his fighting career. You think hes put weight on since then??? No.
10 pounds max ehh??? Didnt realize you were so good at predicting peoples weight from pictures. Especially when 1 guy looks way more then 10 pounds heavier
Sounds to me like you WANT there to be a max 10 pound difference between the two. Hell Chael Sonnen who said he walks around 230 (Dont quote me on that) said that he believes that Jones weighs alot more then him. And he spent time with him in person so i think his word carries a bit more weight then your ability to judge peoples weight from pictures. Now i dont know what the difference in weight Anderson and Jones have and i wont pretend to know. But im willing to bet its more then 10 pounds.
The only thin part on Jon Jones is his legs. His upper body is quiet big. Then you add his lengthy frame and you get a heavy guy.
It may be +/- a pound but my point being is just because Jones towers about everyone doesnt mean he's some diuretic taking HW struggling to make LHW. He IS A LHW. A long one. And of course Jones is more defined. I 6'4 guy making 205 cant afford body fat.
