It also fits young vs old since Silva i.e. Ali was beyond his peak facing a younger Foreman.
I agree this is a more apt comparison Bones is a physical freak of a monster like Foreman.

Bones wrestling is Greco based... IE in close from a clinch. He doesn't have the collegic style of GSP or Sonnen. Jones won't be able to close the distance, and Silva will matrix his punches. Silva wrecks jones rather easily IMO.

GSP's style + Jon Jones' size + Anderson Silva's confidence = Anderson Silva's worst nightmare

This is wrong his base is folkstyle that is what he earned most of his amateur accolades in. The opposite is true of Sonnen who had more success and competed longer in Greco. They just have different philosophies when it comes to takedowns in MMA. Bones believes in the unpredictability of a wide array of takedown techniques and Sonnen believes in mastering the variations of a single technique.
