UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
This is pathetic and bad for the sport, he wont fight Jones because he's different weight, yet he's fought 205 beore and right now he's willing to fight a WW. He won't fight Jones because they're 'friends', but haven't known each other long and have a slight languge barrier, living in different countries.
I honestly thought Silva would continue to break new ground and chase the 205 title, very much doubt it now, sad.
Bones would wreck Silva, unless Silva pulls of a miracle sub like he did against Sonnen. We all know Anderson struggles against wrestlers, and this is the kind of wrestler that no one has been able to stuff and with the longest reach in UFC history. Once he takes people down, he breaks orbital bones with a single elbow and puts em in surgery...
Silva knows this and obviously doesn't want the fight, no surprises there.
So WTF was the point of Lorenzo's twitter post when Jones won the belt? Got me all excited for no reason. I could give a **** about gsp vs silva. I want jbj vs silva!!!
I would be rooting for silva but I would definitely be scared for him. I dunno if he has the skill to beat jbj. If he did win (silva) I would be on a high horse for a long time
Hah...hah...true dat! Anderson 100% has the skills to win there's no doubt about it. But that would probably be his biggest challenge since Vitor. Vitor could fight Anderson again and I'd still say he's one of the bigger threats at MW. Vitor can f*** up anybody else in the division.
JBJ is very choppy with his strikes. There's no fluidity. It's his athleticism, physical attributes that enable him to do what he does not necessarily his skills. Skill wise he's still relatively green, WHICH makes the case for him being a possible prodigy in the sport. Question is can he hold his belt the way GSP and Anderson have in the treacherous division.
JBJ would have to defend against Rashad, Rampage, Machida, then Phil Davis in order for him to have the PRIVILEDGE of fighting Anderson Silva. If that day ever came you know who I'd be rooting for. "The Spider" by the most brilliant KO ever then retire as the ABSOLUTE all time greatest!
i dont understand this, they are not at the same camp, they dont speak the same language, to my knowledge they have never trained together, they only have had a brief conversation and have only talked about eachothers skills, how are they suddenly tight friends
