Jones is basically a bigger, stronger version of Anderson with wrestling.

If he didn't freeze up out of respect for his 'idol' then I'd take him by some sort of mauling.

Destroying the Champ and then defending a belt that was notorious for switching owners for years multiple times does make him a great Champ.

Jesus, does anyone get more shit than Jones?

I have a feeling once Uncle Dana shows them the money they'll make, they will accept. I see this fight coming to fruition before the GSP one.

I don't like Jon outside the ring but there is nothing wrong with saying you are a great champion, when you are. He's beat so many champs in that division in such a short time that it is in fact retarded to deny him that status. What's he suppose to say, "I'm okay, not too bad. I still need to improve to get to the top?" Comeon dude, you are picking at straws here.

It's inching closer. Anderson Silva at LHW really is something. He turns it on to another level. It may seem like he's playing, but I don't think so man. He senses the urgency, excels in those high pressure situations, and simply transforms into Super Saiyan mode. Basically I don't think we've seen him at 100% yet. Every time he pulls out something new.

I mean I predicted exactly what Bonnar was going to do which was the right game plan. What none of us predicted was Anderson actually welcoming it. Then tripping him and landing a pin point knee shot. How many fighters land sloppy knee shots to the body or head, try to uppercut, or land a roundhouse and miss especially in a scramble. That all happened in a split second which showed how instinctual he is.

The LHW title holder executes well, but in route to that it's usually simply over powering his opponents and using his reach. The only unique move is his spinning elbows.

Anderson employs unorthodox and orthodox attacks that not only surprise his opponents, but the world.

Flying knee KOing Carlos Newton who tried to take em down.
Reverse elbow KOing Tony Frykland
One of the best Muay Thai clinch clinic (tongue twister) against Rich Franklin.
Flying knee against Travis Lutter which actually backfired, ends up getting mounted then reverses later on and submits a black belt.
Side kicks to Maia's thighs.
Frontal kick KO against Vitor.
Catching Irvin's very first leg kick and countering with a GPS guided right punch.
The "flawless victory fight" of the century against Griffin.
Knee to the plexus in a scramble!
Actually that was a similar knee against Chael. So yah that same knee against Bonnar was definitely aimed for that as Patrick Cote said.

List goes on. How many ways does the LHW title holder win. Choke, TKO, decisions, etc.

Nothing wrong indeed, but nothing humble about it either and that was the remark about.

What he said does not demerit his successful accomplishments as a fighter in any way. He is in a bright and well deserved spot right now. However I admit I was picking on him for his lack of modesty. Never heard GSP, Anderson or JDS praising themselves like that, what, for me, puts them in a different level from Jones.
