Silva vs. Jones closer than we think...?
 
Dana just said in the press conference that Anderson called him up tonight and asked to fight either Jones or St. Pierre (he wouldn't clarify which one).

The plot thickens.

Please let it be bones, I would pay a lot of money to watch Silva vs. Jones. Most skill in the cage ever.

I just hope it happens, I really don't care which one too much, just want it to go down. I prefer GSP because I want the guys who are older who have these longest legacies in the UFC to finally do it, Jones is young and will have his extra significant legacy fights in his career but less time remains for GSP and Silva to do theirs.

I'm guessing Silva called out Jones, as he's already been chasing the GSP fight for months.

I'm sick of Jones fighting MWs. Bring on Cain and you got my interest.

I don't care which one either but I'd prefer GSP vs Silva for the same reasons you have stated. To be honest though I'll believe this when I see Jones vs Silva or GSP vs Silva in the cage. Dana will say just about anything to get everyone's wheels spinning.

Silva has amazing ability but he has one glaring weakness and that is wrestling

everyone talks about how great chael"s wrestling is and he out wrestled silva big time until a stupid spinning back fist ended it for him and he couldnt finish with his pillow hands.

I believe chael's wrestling ability has been over estimated because he fought in a division of non wrestlers at MW.

we just saw him get out wrestled by jones and jones hits much harder than chael and is much bigger. His size, length, brute strength and wrestling will overcome silva and he has the power that Chael lacked to finish it on the mat. TKO over silva. personally i think jones is #1 p4p.

gsp is faster and a smarter fighter than chael with good sub defense and great wrestling. he also rules a division of wrestlers and out wrestles them all which makes me think he may have better wrestling than chael. UD over silva.

silva would have a better chance against GSP than jones and could possibly win but jones is too much of a match for him.
