Good catch
For anyone who didn't know this already Jon Jone idealizes Anderson Silva.

I guess that explains some of his unorthodox side kicks to the legs.

Imagine these 2 training together. Jones would gain some mad skills.

He might learn a few new strikes and some BJJ but I don't think it would be all that much. What makes Jones and Anderson so good are their creativity, reflexes and reactions. You can't really teach those things.

silva taking jones under his wing? that would be a huge friendship. Anderson helps jones with his sriking and fighting style. I have a feeling that anderson does in fact speak a lot better english than he leads on.

Rashad Evans claims that Silva does infact speak a lot better english. His comments are consistant with that of Chael Sonnen's

yes, and chael's comments are consistent with some of the interviews/videos I have seen. Silva is the p4p best now, jones is the future. It would be nice to know anderson more. Apparently he is a very funny and goofy guy.

He speaks English in many interviews but you can tell he still has to work at it. I think he is understandably much more comfortable speaking Portuguese and prefers this in most forms of media. Does he not have the right to speak in his native tongue?

:huh:

I was saying he and jones can talk to each other better than most people think, if they are going to hang out and talk.

He is insanely goofy. I could tell by observing some of the things he wears (referring to Cribs)

You might find the last link interesting. But if you don't here is a link of Anderson Silva sparring with Lyoto Machida.

I like the one where hes holding the mic in hawani's face. Im just waiting for the day when somebody just knocks him out, but they probably wouldnt upload that interview then.

LOL I was thinking Diaz was going to knock him out or atleast rough up his collar a bit.

Glad you brought it up. You see that move all the time in self defense and street fights, It works great with your shoe digging into the guys knee, it can dislocate or even cause the knee cap to displace. You see it very rarely in mma and sometimes in kickboxing. I was always wondering how well that would work in an mma fight. Jones seems to have it down very good. It could damage a persons knee if it was just right, it will set them off balance and almost works as like a jab to stop them from moving foward, or keeping them at the distance you want. Of course having jones's long body helps tremendously. He throws it from a further range. Iv seen it most of the time coming down on the kneecap.

haha, remember when rampage slapped him. I like hawani, he is typically a professional guy and gets great interviews. But sometimes he seems to poke and jab too much, to guys that would absolutely sell his ass. Maybe a good serving of KTFO would humble him.
