Jones is bigger than Silver in every aspect.

That said, with enough time to prepare Silver could perhaps bulk and be much heavier than the 202 he was against Bonner but I'd still expect Jones to have the significant weight advantage.

Yeah i dont understand this tbh.

Chael Sonnen is considered to be a pretty good sized MW. Yet he was a child compared to Jon Jones. What would make Anderson any different??? He didnt have a size advantage when he fought Chael.

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.
You know that Chael is a compulsive liar right?

Bones said a while back that he changed his diet to make the cut easier and was cutting from around 220-225 I believe. Who knows how much he weighs now but I would guess it is probably around that and not over 230.

It is good to see that people are actually accepting reality now on Andy's fighting weight and not that 230 nonsense that is thrown around which he only weighs when he is out injured eating nothing but pudding and big macs. I have been saying for a couple years now here that he weighs between 195-205 when he fights at MW and people just disregarded it and kept acting like he was some massive MW. Okami and Chael are heavy MWs Andy is about average.

Who cares. If Silva is the greatest fighter alive, then Jones being 20 pounds heavier shouldn't matter. What happened to skill beats size? Or are Silva fans getting their excuses ready?

Stop acting like a bunch of women.

May have to do with the fact that he is 38 years old who would move a weight class to go fight a guy hailed as going to be the best ever...who is the biggest LHW and in his prime.

I want to see this fight as a Silva fan. There is no excuse. Anderson stepping in the cage at age 38 or 39 to face the phenom that is Jon Jones at not even a catchweight, would be more legendary than anything GSP has done in his career.

Since when has great skill ever beaten great skill with size on any regular basis in combat sports? Size doesn't matter as much when you are Fedor(Tyson) fighting bums off the street but when you start ******* with people that know how to throw down Fedor/Bigfoot(Tyson/Lewis) happens. Bones will be the favorite over the sports GOAT if the fight happens and he should be along with his size and age advantages the guy is the greatest LHW champion of all time.

Jones shouldn't be allowed to fight any LHW's. He just looks bigger then them all so it isn't fair...















Get my point yet? Silva is no more outgunned then any of these fighters, the one difference is that he is in another league skill wise. Machida and Belfort gave Jones issues, Rampage and Rashad were able to survive into later rounds. Silva would give Jones the fight of his life, that is if he doesn't beat him quickly...

And for those saying Jones looks thicker, that his arms and legs although skinny weigh more then most other fighters. Somewhere you are incorrect otherwise there is no way he would make 205 yet he does fairly easily and walks around at only 225. Jones has a large extremely lanky frame, it gives him some advantages but it doesn't make him a HW size fighter. He is no different then guys like Corey Hill, Pablo Garza etc build wise. He is successful because he has great wrestling and ground and pound and well rounded enough in other aspects.

Jones is not in Silva's league, nor has Jones fought someone in Silva's league. Silva has without doubt far superior striking and that alone makes this fight worthwhile. Add in that Silva also is the most dangerous fighter off his back that Jones has fought and that adds in an interesting aspect that might keep Jones from being able to fully utilize his strengths(wrestling and ground and pound).

I figure when Jones and Silva both want this fight then it will be worth considering. Same goes for any other cross division champ vs champ fights. Otherwise it is all pointless conjecture clouded by bias fans that does nothing but bloat posts.

'5 Round' Chael disagrees.
