Soon as Silva resisted Sonnen's initial attempt at a takedown in the 2nd you could feel that the tide was changing. Then Silva picked him apart. Sonnen losing composure in the face of adversity just sped up the process.
Doesn't matter, my point still stands. Jones has not fought a fighter near Silva's abilities before neither standing nor from his back. Jones has done a great job picking apart wrestlers or one dimensional old strikers. The only fighter somewhat close to Silva has been Machida but Machida has bigger holes then Silva does imo.
