    What the hell are you talking about? the only fighter Anderson is directly targeting that is in a lower weight class is GSP... who is one of the GOATS, P4P best, etc...

    Ask Stephen Bonnar who he thinks is better.

    It seems that you forgot who was Jon's last opponent and who is his next opponent.

    Fuck all the talk about size advantages, the resume is all that matters. As of now, I would say that Silva's resume is head an shoulders above Jones. However, I can definitely see Jones surpassing Silva one day.

    Hearing some of this shit ya'll are talking just reminded me that Bellator was boasting Schlemenko as the "best Russian fighter ever" on the preview commercial for last weeks event on SPIKE TV. They clearly forgot who the fuck Fedor Emelianenko is...

    everybody has their opinion but some of this stuff is just plain moronic

    I agree. I think Jones can be on his way to become more accomplished than Anderson based on better quality of opposition in his division, his potential move to HW division, and his time left in the sport. Technically speaking, some of Anderson's skills is mind blowing, e.g., his head movement and dodging strikes in the Forrest fight.

    Jones hasn't had that same impression (at least on me) and that's not a knock at him because it's extremely rare for some fighters to be at that level of technique. To me Jones is like GSP, he is really good at a lot of facets of the game, and combined with his physical assets, is able to use those tools extremely well. Although I must say that sometimes GSP's takedowns puts me at awe, because of his timing and transitions but his striking nor ground game (well aside from his transitions) has that same effect on me.
