yeah well Silva is ranked #1 or #2 in the p4p rankings and he is atleast similar in size to JBJ. If anyone has a chance at JBJ it's him. This fight needs to happen asap in my opinion, best fight the UFC ever put on if it happens.

wow, yeh after the bader fight i decided this was the fight i wanted to see the most. and i convinced myself silva would win, after the shogun fight, i fear for anderson in this one

and anderson is my man, the guy that really got me excited about the sport

i do think anderson would have the best chance of anyone, but thats probly not a big call

Sonnen dominated Silva. Jones has better standup than Sonnen by far and he rocked Silva a couple of times.
His wrestling should be about even to Sonnens and thats the weakpoint of AS. Jones will not be submitted by Silva like Chael. I dont need to see that fight to know who would win it.
Let Jones move up to heavyweight now so he can destroy some guys his own size
Seriously nobody will beat Jones at LHW. He will dominate like GSP did/does.

that's why so many people hate JBJ winning. Nobody in LHW has a chance against JBJ and he's 23, but JBJ's takedown is nowhere near Sonnen's at this point in his career. Sonnen is renowned in the mma community for being insane with his takedowns.

In time I think Phil davis could beat JBJ, he's 10 times the athlete Jones is and I seriously doubt JBJ could manhandle that guy!

Both wrestlers so it would usually be a fight standing. Who has the better Standup? Jones by miles. As much as i like Davis, he doesnt stand a chance against Jones.

I prefer GSP - Silva. Way more competitive. Jones is just gonna manhandle Silva.

I agree with you on the standup, but to be honest I think Davis would get him to the ground and submit him! I don't think theirs anyone that can stop his shot.

Yeah, Jone's takedowns are nowhere near Sonnens, because they're vastly superior to Sonnen's.

If GSP is supposed to be toosmall for Silva, then Silva is too small for Bones.

Bones, takedown, pound out.

You want a superfight for Bones look at the division above, not below.
