Silva and bones picture, side to side (both are in shape)
 
The size difference is not that big at all.

Yep pretty much the same as any other Jones fight. Jones has a larger frame but Silva is actually thicker. The weight difference is minimal between these guys and Jones' only real advantage is his lanky frame and wrestling abilities.

Jones looks bigger then everyone he fights. It is all because of his extremely long legs and arms. Look at his torso, Silva actually has a longer torso, his hips are noticeably lower then Jones' but his shoulders are only slightly lower. Thickness wise Silva looks to be thicker as well. 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.

Jones is way bigger.

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

Actually, I'm surprised at how well Anderson measures up to Jones. I thought it would be a bigger difference.

I dont know man

If you look at their arms its Jones who looks considerably bigger.

- Jones is taller
- Silva has a thicker torso
- Jones has longer arms
- Silva has thicker legs (just based on calfs)

I'm not seeing much of a size difference, not such that it should impact the outcome if these two were to fight. Although, I wish the TV wasn't blocking the veiw so we could actually get a complete comparison.

Jones having bigger biceps doesn't mean much.

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.
