About Jones, he's still building a legacy but he's already faced a higher level of competition than Anderson Silva has, and he's still rolling.

Some call Anderson the GOAT but Jones will surpass him.
Any one trying to deny an undeniable fact and also acting like a "fortune teller" is not on my list of rational thinkers also.

Have to respect Anderson a ton here for this. Pretty much any result other then total domination and a finish people will talk ish about, and even if he does do exactly that people will still say "but its Bonnar.." Lighten up, its a fun fight as a THIRD option. Some people are just way overcritical.

So who has Silva beat that rivals the skill level of Machida, Rampage and Rua?
The biggest win in A. Silva's title rain is Henderson back in 08.

The champion who is so dominant that even the great John Bones Jones ducked out of a fight with him because he knew that he would no doubt be mangled by the greatest fighter who's every graced a pair of gloves..

Franklin back when Silva beat him was a far more impressive scalp then the plodding zombie Rua that Bones crushed. And I consider Belfort better then Rampage. And I consider Chael Sonnen a pretty damn skill full fighter.

Jones was even scared of the great Chael because of his fierce fighting abilities.

The spinning backfist was so feared Anderson had to run away and avoid it.

Umm no he wasn't even close, I remember people calling Franklin a can crusher back then. The talent level that Franklin had faced always left a question mark. The LHW champion Rua? Belfort is fighting Jones next unless someone gets injured. Odds are Sonnen can't beat Rua a motivated Rampage or Machida.
