He is there. Too bad he chose the back row, though.

This fight would be so amazing, so epic, that I must say: sometimes I don't even know if I really want it to happen.
If they fight one will win and the other lose. One remains a legend, the other a merely mortal. If the fight is not close, ends fast, we will rediscuss all the loser have done e people will minimize his conquers. One scenario, thats all.
But...
If they don't fight (and I dont think they will), we will discuss forever what an amazing fight it would have been. Thousands of scenarios will come to the discussions, every detail will be analised forever.
So, if they fight, the magical aura ends.

Jones is significantly bigger, but it would be a more fair fight sizewise than Silva vs GSP.

That people can dismiss giving up 20 pounds to Bones as if its nothing? Fecking absurd.
Anderson fought Bonnar on relative short notice. Still in his Middle weight cut. His other 2 LHW fights were well planned he he did have to cut weight. Now im not an MMA reporter, doctor, Andersons trainer or any of that. But throughout my MMA fanship ive heard consistantly Anderson walks around in the 210-220 range and Bones has weighed 232 at his heaviest when he was 3 fights into his fighting career. You think hes put weight on since then??? No.

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.

It may be +/- a pound but my point being is just because Jones towers about everyone doesnt mean he's some diuretic taking HW struggling to make LHW. He IS A LHW. A long one. And of course Jones is more defined. I 6'4 guy making 205 cant afford body fat.

Jon Jones | Anderson Silva | Urijah Faber | Benson Henderson | Rampage Jackson | Roy Nelson | Shinya Aoki

They're both pretty skinny actually, but Jones looks to have the larger frame. Size wise, they are not my type.

Well it's good to know that's what this thread was about. Personally Jones' legs and butt are too small for my liking, I like a big booty.

Okay. Seriously...Chael dominated the first round. The second was pretty much spent against the cage until Chael slipped like an idiot. Anderson didn't really put a beating on him...he beat him but hardly beat him like he did Forrest or Rich or pretty much anyone else he's fought in the UFC.
