I think Silva probably saw holes in Jones's striking game for that split second that Chael rushed him. Anderson probably thinks that split second is enough for him.

The only question, that we may get answered, is whether Silva can survive the elbows. Silva can handle ground and pound with ease and he's not getting subbed, it's those elbows of Jones that change fights. If silva can solve that he can win, if not Jones elbows his way to the GOAT.

GSP is probably thanking his lucky stars his name will stop getting thrown around in a superfight for awhile.

Tell me about it. First he says he'd much rather drop down to 155 to challenge Benson, and now Silva is no longer interested in fighting GSP, but instead Jones. So GSP pretty much gets to coast at WW while everyone else petitions to challenge themselves, he's so damn smart lmao

this is straight up retarded, GSP coasts at WW... I'm sure fighting Hendricks is like a walk in the park. GSP knows he doesn't stand a chance against Silva, that doesn't make him a wuss. Benson would get annihalated by GSP, does that make him a coward for not moving up tomorrow? GSP is limited by his physical gifts, Anderson and Jones are not because their frames can hold more mass without losing significant speed. GSP isn't the hardest hitter in the world, he's not the toughest guy in the world, he's not the biggest WW yet he is the most dominant WW ever by working his ass off all the time. He's done as much as he can with the gifts given to him, yet everyone wants to criticize from their basement.

Knowing that DW is a pathological liar, I doubt very much that this "phone call" actually took place. He just keeps stringing the suckers along, WWE style.

Very likely. He might of talked to Ed Sores a week ago about a good restaurant he went to in Santa Monica, which might mean for Dana, Anderson Called him during the fight. I wouldn't rule it out.

As talented as he is he is pretty bad in some basic areas.

For example his guard passing is pretty shitty. Anderson has a pretty good offensive guard...arguably the best Jones has ever faced, and with Jones' still sloppy sub defense Anderson could tap him.
This. It's never a foregone conclusion with a guy like anderson, but Jones is deservingly the clear favorite here with his overwhelmimg wrestling and brutal GnP, both anderson's weaknesses, as well as a major size, strength and reach advantage. Anderson's guard and a well timed strike on the way in are the x factor.

I give it to Anderson if they fight, mostly because I think Anderson doesn't really try in most of his fights and we rarely see him trying 100%. I remember one time, in the Okami fight in I think the second round he looked like he was legitimately trying for a small amount of time. He was moving his head and pushing forward aggressively and throwing punches with intent to hurt, I really hope this fight happens and we see both fighters pushed to their limits.

Anderson's advantage is Jones will underestimate him because he rarely tries, Anderson is as tough as they came, if they get close and exchange Jones will come out the loser if Anderson can get him to exchange for even a few seconds. He's got to shake Jones off and stay in the pocket for a little while, Jones has the brute force but Anderson has one punch fight changing power. Jones has never fought anyone with the speed of Silva.

I'd love to see a striking match between these two. But, anyone with a brain knows Jones would just try to wrestle him the entire fight. Jones isn't stupid, he knows Anderson is on another level when it comes to striking.
