Could Jon Jones beat Anderson Silva?

These two guys are at different places in their careers but they share greatness. Anderson's fought at 205 before, these two could put on a great fight-- but who would win?

Jones is MUCH bigger and he proved his wrestling is good enough to stop the best of the best, I think he would take Anderson down and GnP his way to a stoppage.

Chael Sonnen did it with EASE, Jones is bigger then Sonnen and has shown just as good of wrestling.

Chael's boxing compared to Jones is like mine compared to Edgars. And Vera tied Jones up easily, he just didn't throw any sub attempts, Silva would likely have Jones in a body triangle instantly and work elbows and subs from there.


If Jones wasn't KO'd on the way in he'd be subbed, period.

IM Completely on the JJ hype Train and i think he will win against Shogun, but id put my money on Anderson if they fought each other now.

Give JBJ another 2 years and id be giving him the benefit of the doubt

Nercay has a little shameless behaviour in the past
As much as i like JBJ, i can't see him beating Silva, i'd see him getting subbed to be honest.

I really don't understand people who think Jones can beat Rua but not Anderson

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.

I find it interesting that People would pick Jones to beat Silva because "he would take him down" but the same question was posed about Shields and almost everyone picked Silva...

Jones has better hands than Jake but Im telling you at this point in time his striking is not good enough IMO to stand with Silva and he's not better on the ground than Shields.

He might have slightly better takedowns, might but Shields has much better control from top or bottom position than Jones. If Jones takes Silva down Im not sure he wont get submitted, swept or Silva might just stand right back up.

I dont know I just find it odd that Shields is better at what a lot of people here think is the key to Jones beating A.S.
