A. Silva is also unpredictable and dangerous, but not wild. He is extremely calculating and lightning fast. I don't think JJ will ever have that.
What is the last Jones fight you've seen? Jones stopped relying on wild strikes a while ago. He will do spinning elbows maybe 1 time every other round, but the vast majority of his strikes are technical.
