Silva looks huge. Not as long as Bones, but definitely bigger.

I just don't get how some people are willing to write this fight off because of size. There are fights within weight divisions with bigger size differences then in this fight. Many times the smaller fighter still wins based on skill and no one comes close to Silva when it comes to skill.

I really hope we see this fight and if it happens I will definitely be picking Silva to win. Heck I think GSP has as good a chance beating Silva as Jones does and there actually is a size advantage in that match.
Its not the biceps that i am talking about. I cant even get a good look at those.

His forearms, shoulders, shoulders width, chest width, Traps. All of that looks much bigger on Jones. The only thing that i can see that is bigger on Anderson is his calves slightly (Jones has really skinny ones) and stomach.

The fight is still interesting even though i think Jones is much bigger then Anderson. I just think that Anderson is much better then jones but if Jones is going to win it is going to be due to over powering Silva + great clinch wrestling ability.

I dont want to see Anderson get a loss for something like that. Id rather see him lose because someone knocked him out or just beat him down for 5 rounds.



Rampage Jackson who used to be considered one of the bigger guys at 205

Frankly, I thought Jones looked bigger than I imagine in comparison to Anderson. Anyway, still game on, no doubt.

Bones is much bigger then Silva.

Andersons last fight at LHW he weighed in at 202lbs. No weight cutting and no weight put on after the weigh ins. By comparison, Jones weighs well over 220lbs on fight night.

That people can dismiss giving up 20 pounds to Bones as if its nothing? Fecking absurd.

The only significant difference is that Jones' legs and arms are 3-4 inches shorter(and skinnier as well).

Jones' frame and reach do give him advantages, they are pretty much what makes him such a special fighter. All I am stating is weight wise these guys aren't that different whereas some people believe there would be a 20-30 lb weight difference between them on fight night.

This fight if it happens comes down to skill and natural abilities. If Jones wins it is because of his freak body build and wrestling. If Silva wins it is because of his striking, experience and jiu jitsu.
You know that those ridiculously long limbs weigh something right? He does have about 20 pounds on him and his freak limbs and 2 or so inches of height are bigger advantages than having that difference in thickness alone. I'd trade the moderate boost in knockout power for a foot of reach and exceptional leverage in grappling.

Legs and arms are made of polystyrene, dont you know?

I'm more interested in seeing Anderson next to Weidman. Weidman is a big dude.

10Lbs difference MAX between the two. Clearly Bones is Taller/ Longer and Anderson is thicker. It boggles my mind when people say "Bones is a HW" or "Bones is so much bigger" than all his opponents. He's LONGER than everyone. Most LHW walk around 20lbs heavier than 205...........like Bones.

I'll try again...

Silva weighed 202 against Bonnar. He cut no weight. Basically, that's Silvas weight when hes in shape. I'm guessing it's very close to his fight weight at MW.

Bones tweeted weighing 221 not long after the weigh-ins for the Bader fight. God knows what his weight is in the actual fight.

That's 20 pounds difference *minimum* on fight night. Probably a lot more in the picture.

10 pounds max ehh??? Didnt realize you were so good at predicting peoples weight from pictures. Especially when 1 guy looks way more then 10 pounds heavier

Sounds to me like you WANT there to be a max 10 pound difference between the two. Hell Chael Sonnen who said he walks around 230 (Dont quote me on that) said that he believes that Jones weighs alot more then him. And he spent time with him in person so i think his word carries a bit more weight then your ability to judge peoples weight from pictures. Now i dont know what the difference in weight Anderson and Jones have and i wont pretend to know. But im willing to bet its more then 10 pounds.

The only thin part on Jon Jones is his legs. His upper body is quiet big. Then you add his lengthy frame and you get a heavy guy.
