After Bones fights (and destroy's Rashad), it has to be "Bones vs Silva". Forget GSP, as that fight no longer makes sense. Silva vs Bones is the fight that must now happen. There is no one left for Bones in light heavy and he is not ready to go heavy weight, yet. This is the fight of the century.

Silva vs. Jones..already? Really? Even after fighting Rashad, that's only one title defense homie.

No one left for Jones? Really? He isn't ready to go to heavyweight but he's ready to fight Anderson? All of this after one title defense to which he hasn't even defended yet? You kind of have to establish yourself as a champion first, and that does not mean one title defense.

It's not Jon Jones' fault...but I think this thread is the reason why some people on here aren't exactly Jon Jones fans. I'm on the Jones hype train, but this is ridiculous.

i'm gonig to give you a pass as your probably drunk after watching 128. But Forrest griffin in a superfight? Jones has to beat evans,machida/randy,rampage,phil davis (if he wins) for a superfight to happen. However if he can beat evans and the next guy he faces dominantly like tonight then him vs AS or cain should happen.

Ridiculous?...so, apparently, was the idea of Jones beating Shogun. So, tell me, who in light heavy is going to give Jones a challenge?

Rampage?
Machida?
Rashad?
Forrest?
Bisping?
Franklin?
Belfort?
Couture?

Please...fill me in.

I'm sorry but after TWO title defenses, even in dominant fashion, doesn't warrant him a shot against Anderson.

I agree that I'd rather see Silva/Jones rather than Silva/GSP, but goddamn, this guy needs to establish himself the king of this division before this thought even comes to mind when it's to the point when there is literally NO BODY left for him to fight before the thought of fighting Anderson.

Hm, because Jones had his back to the world when fighting Shogun and so many people picked against him. It was "ridiculous"..lawl.

Well, Rashad, Rampage, Machida, and in time maybe Phil Davis could give Jones a challenge. He's not even been a champion for more than 24 hours dude. The fact that you're ready to completely write off an entire division before the dude even defends his belt is absurd. I'm sorry but am I the only one that remembers GSP becoming champion at a young age and everyone predicted him to just run through everybody and Matt Serra comes along to delay that soon to be reality? I repeat, Jon Jones hasen't even DEFENDED his title yet and threads like these are being made. You want a super fight after the guy defends his title once...to which he hasen't even defended yet, against the best fighter in the world. That is text book ridiculous. Filled in.

My bad on the forrest misread that......but back on point he beat shogun, mma is different every opponent is different. Hell Brock lesnar lost to cain, does that mean cain can beat the entire hw division. If you were a real mma fan you would understand that anyone can beat anyone. Who the hell taught silva would get whoop by chael, or fedor losing twice,Gsp getting killed by edgar, Gsp losing to serra, Hughes to gsp....at one point all these guys seem unbeatable. (silva still seems unbeatable) If sheilds beats gsp do we call for a superfight or can he beat the rest of the guys.

So, all the others who got to fight Silva deserved it more than Jones? Come on. Ask this: who is left for Silva to fight? Sure, Chael again, but I think it will be much more conclusive this time around. Bones is not staying light heavy for long, so Silva has to happen sooner than later. Many thought Bones was fast tracked to a title shot, but look what happend tonight. I am not a Bones fan per se, but there is no denying this guy is a new breed. I stand by this call the same as my call that he would beat Shogun tonight. This is the fight that has to happen.

silva was not sick when he moved up to lhw, he moved up in weight those were not superfights. Now that he has cleared out his division and gsp HAS done the same. There is nothing left for them. Bones still has an entire division before a super fight.

Dude Jones was the 2.5 to 1 favorite, meaning most people didn't think it was ridiculous at all.
