    Silva loses this fight no matter how u put it. He gives up too much size and reach and wrestling too. It'd play out just like fe1 said. I'll be interested in a fight where Jones is fighting in his natural weight class. Beating up ppl smaller than him with dirty kicks to the knees and elbows to the throat just don't amuse me.

    Silva imo wouldn't have dominated lhw like he has mw either but u can still see a big difference in talent between the two.

    I think that's pretty nonsensical. As others pointed out, far inferior wrestlers to Jones had little problems getting Silva down in his prime. Jones length alone is something that would give Silva problems. I'd probably take Silva over every other 205 pounder out there, but Jones is an absolute nightmare for him.

    Exactly the kind of confidence you would expect from the p4p best fighter in the world. I think he's just saying this to take stock out of a fight with Jones and put more stock into a fight with GSP.

    Jones is a bad match up for anybody outside of the HW division.

    Prime Jones strugged against Bonnar and almost got submitted by Vitor so what? Anyways this isn't new news. Silva said along time ago that no Brazillian can beat Jon Jones...

    Anderson always says he wants to fight the best. Hmm..

    I never take these comments seriously; it's just too weird.

    But I do agree that Jones could beat Anderson. While he doesn't have the experience, he has size, wrestling, extremely high fight IQ, and dedication. But Silva's TDD is still improving (surprisingly), his obvious striking advantage, and his clinch is nasty. Would love to see this fight!

    AS/JJ is definitely a retirement fight and it most certainly will be in terms of the money AS will make.
