He sees a weakness in a toe submission or imagine a foot stomp. The reaction in the LHW title holders face was priceless. He was in shock. But man did he man handle Chael. I was hoping for at least three rounds. That was just sad. Really sad.

Anderson Silva called Dana after PPV and asked for Jon Jones fight

And Dana said he will be working on it straight away.

No Weidman fight?

Oh god no. Silva would get thrashed. Jones made Sonnen look like a child in there, and Chael's both bigger and a better wrestler than Silva.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Silva's the #1 p4p fighter in the world... so it's not like he doesn't have a chance

How can anyone confidently say silva would get destroyed by Jones? I know Jones has looked unbeatable, but a man with the body of work as Silva don't you think he is also as skilled?

It's easy to make predictions based on what we have seen, but they will have to fight to see who's better. I don't believe you can say Anderson Silva will lose to Jones easily without looking at it objectively.

All I know Silva's skills set gives him a very good chance of winning, so does jones. The way I see this fight going down, standing up Silva wins easily, ground Jones wins, but then you gotta factor in the external stuff. Does Anderson or Jones want it more? Who has more heart, who is mentally tougher,etc.

It will be a great fight for us fans, but the UFC will be losing a major star after this one and a god like fighter will be created once it's over with. You can play mma math all you want, but this one I simply don't know who will win unless they fight.

As soon as they clinch it's over and it's reigning elbows from there on out

I think vitors better off his back and he got pummeled, chael got up a few times but again he's probably the best fighter off his back to get back up that jones has faced.

As a massive fan of both Silva takes this. This is Anderson Silva were talking about, I see him pick jones apart on the feet.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones
