I think that Silva will have a walk on the park with this match against Jones. He has the experienced and skills to beat Jones.

What Chael did was to silva with a broken rib and roided up and he still lost because silva has the Heart and Skill of the GOAT. Bones is a great fighter but he still has a long way to go before he can beat Silva or Shogun.

Jones would be bigger and have better wrestling, if that alone is enough to beat Silva, then so be it, because at this time, Silva is a LOT better at absolutely everything else.

Let's see Jones beat Rua first before comparing a fantasy match with Silva.

He could. Hell I could bang emma watson. Could is a fun word that makes many things possible, without being likely. I like "could".

His striking and JJ are weak enough that any small difference between Rua and Anderson's striking and JJ skills is irrelevant when they are both matched up with Jones.

If Anderson is fave against him, Shogun is fave against him, and vice-versa.
Shogun isn't equivalent to Andy anywhere. Watch Forrest/Shogun before he gassed when they were striking then watch Forrest/Andy.

Does Bones have a shot? Yeah he has a shot but he shouldn't be favored because of the huge gulf of talent when it comes to both BJJ and striking.

Well the Shogun V Forrest was obviously not the same Shogun we have seen the rest of his career where he is a relentless animal!

But Shogun and Andy are very very different fights, with many many similarities, if that makes sense! I.e. Both incredible Muay Thai and BJJ but a very different approach of using them. Anderson though, has better boxing than Shogun.

Anderson may have better hands (although watch Shogun vs Machida I/II, Shogun vs Lil Nog etc) but Shogun has much, much, much better kicks. I'd say their clinch is equal although Shogun has controlled bigger, stronger guys in it.

See even vs Machida and Lil Nog, his hands were still rather wild in comparison to the clean way Anderson punches. But Shogun definately packs more heat behind his punches.

Andersons long legs also make him dangerous from the clinch, but I do agree, Shoguns clinch is a very dangerous one indeed!

Oh and kicks, I'd say Shogun is more powerful, but Anderson more creative (more variety).
