    Striking for Jones is almost like a video game he strikes and nobody can reach him.

    Once someone does get inside and lays a few hard hits on him he'll be even more careful

    I don't think he will get to Anderson Silva level but I also didn't think he would reach the level he is at now. His striking is better than I ever thought it would be.

    It's kind of strange..Bones,Tito,Chuck...The three greatest lhw champs of UFC's history.

    I dont think I have seen any of the 3 one punch KO someone.

    You must not watch his fight or have knowledge on the striking arts...
    I didnt watch the Vitor fight, but Ive seen the rest. Im not impressed. Anderson is an impressive striker. Thiago Alves is an impressive striker. Jose Aldo is a terribly impressive striker. Machida is a very impressive striker. When Jones shows a skill level like that, then you can sing his praises. Until then, take those tunnel vision glasses you're wearing off, and look at the world around you.

    hahahahahahaha what a good joke!!

    Jones is for sure one hell of a fighter, but technically he is extremely far from Anderson's striking.
    Also, when Jones drops his hands and dodges all of his opponent punches using just head movement then we can begin to compare those 2.

    Jones may definitely be a much better wrestler than Anderson, for sure he is bigger and stronger, but in the striking he is still very far from Silva.
