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.
Yes and the same thing applies when he's matched with Shogun, which instantly makes it similar to the Anderson fight - Jones is disadvantaged in the same areas against both fighters, is the point I tried to make.

Whatever Shogun and Silva are better or worse at than each other, they should both be similarly favoured/not favoured against Jones.

End of the day, whichever fight it is, all the Jones supporters will still be saying "He can take him down!!!" as if a hiptoss has the power to destroy the world.

Well anyone can beat anyone on any given day but no I wouldn't bet against Silva at the moment.

I was thinking about this the other day and as much as I like JBJ's style of fighting I don't think he is a spider killer
