Talking Anderson Silva vs Jon Jones - Fight of the decade?


Anderson Silva vs Jon Jones - At Light Heavyweight

Anderson: 6'2" with a 77-1/2 inch reach

Jones: 6'4" with a 84-1/2 inch reach

Jon Jones is a very young and green, up and coming fighter. This isn't so much a "who would win" thread as it is a "how would this fight go" thread. Jones is amazing! The dude is incredible! We'll see how he does against Vera at this upcoming event, but from what we've seen so far, he's completely blown through everyone he's faced. He manhandled Bonnar & Hamill. It was just amazing! I've never quite seen anything like it. Except from maybe Anderson himself.

So, if Bones Jones is matched up against Anderson Silva and they both fight with their maximum potential and go all out like we've seen in the past, how does this fight go down? How do you guys see this thing playing out?

Win, lose, or draw for either guy, this fight would be insane!

I love Jones but Silva murders him. Here's why. None of his wacky, spinning, elbows, kick, anything, would land on Anderson and all would be countered with death. Jones wouldn't survive in any clinch long enough to execute one of his superb Greco throws. Silva demolishes Jones. The touch low, spin high elbow that rocked the guy he choked with the no armed D'arce, would cause only laughter from The Spider instead of any damage. And the second he reached for Anderson's leg, he'd have his head destroyed with a knee. Until Jones learns good technical striking and defense, he would be murdered by Silva. And with Jones at full potential, although the fight would be alot of fun to watch, he still loses.

I guess the only sure thing is that both guys would go at each other a million miles per hour!

I hope Jones never slows down (like Vera did).

Yeah this will be an amazing fight in the future but way to early to be talked about now...

As of now Anderson would be all over Jones like a black man on fried Chicken, and each time Jones would throw there would be no Anderson there to hit.

With the way Anderson plays with his opponents with amazing angles, amazing head movement and accuracy...

Anderson is the all around better fighter then Jones as of now... I say, give this amazingly young fighter some years, and he will be a future threat!

Sig credit to my Homie! limba!

Jones has the size, takedowns, and reach to beat anderson silva...he'd be alot better matchup than gsp is against silva....Two of my favorite fighters, i think anderson silva would win due to experience, but i also think it would be spiders tuffest fight of his career thus far. thats if the fight happen tommorrow. In a few years, anderson will be older, and jones will be better, so id have to say jones wins. right now spider wins, but jones would win a couple rounds.

like joe said, whens the last time we saw someone throw hammil around like that....jones has diseptive anderson silva type strength, he can punch from wierd angles, and is pretty accurate himself, could confused anderson, atleast more than anyone else has so far...but the biggest advantage jones would have, is having the reach to match anderson that others didn't, beside forrest, but forrest isn't quick as jones or as powerful...jones also has crazy throws, could see him givin spider alot of problems, and winning more rounds than anyone else, in the ufc has against anderson....i wanta see this fight SOOOOON. while anderson is still in HIS prime.

I see a close fight the first time for sure, which would set them up for a rematch in 2-3 years.

I only live by 3 rules: Eat Twat, Smoke Pot, and Smile Alot

It's easy to say Anderson would win but If Jon Jones pulled off an upset I wouldn't be surprised at all.

LOLNO. seriously people here love jon jones like the IWC loves jericho and punk... which is to say TO DAMN MUCH. anderson would just wonder why hes being fed a black tree in brazilian.

Fight scenario A) Anderson via KO due to knee faceage B) gets takendown, subs him C) this silly thing dosent happen and this thread magically goes away, i mean really i feel dumber for even reading the suggestion.

special thanks to
Matt Hughes
Rashad Evans
Shane Carwin
Anderson Silva
and of course Gray Maynard

It'd be a great fight to see, however it's waaay too early. Right now, JJ gets murdered - but give him a few more years and he will have a great chance: massive reach advantage, great wrestling, improved (crisp) striking, he'd definiely give Anderson a run for his money.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

Another 2 years and some better competition experience and I'll choose Jones all day long. Dudes young, and has the drive, talent and athletiscm to be one of the greatest.

For now, I don't think he's ready for Silva. Give him time.

Just wait until JJ tightens up the accuracy of his striking, so all of these wild, unpredictable strikes he is throwing are hitting the target much more (not that he isnt already accurate!). Then you have a very, very scary individual. Could very well be fight of the decade.
