Log in to Reply Turboobsessed March 22, 2012 Maybe “YOU” should be an example to show the people how to beat him by fighting him! Log in to Reply kryptonite March 22, 2012 i wanna see a match like they did a couple of years ago when anderson fought griffin something like that same with gsp. i think jon jones would beat anderson in my opinion that fight would never happen if they both defend there belts in should happen in october thats what the fans want be the best fight ever ufc would make millions.. Log in to Reply lulz March 22, 2012 LoL he Just gave Chael MORE ammo. Log in to Reply wow March 22, 2012 The only reason Anderson steps up to 205 is when he knows he is fighting someone he is clearly a hell of a lot better than., Fighting Griffin at 205 was a walk in the park, no disrespect to Griffin as i love the guy, but you wont see Silva move to 205 to fight Bones. Log in to Reply jdogg March 22, 2012 Bones would destroy Silva. It would easily be the most one sided loss in Silva’s career. Believe it. And Bones vs Rashad? Pffffft. Log in to Reply Goomba March 22, 2012 I can’t believe people think Bones can beat Silva. The speed and stand up between the two fighters is vastly different. Bones would absolutely get destroyed. Silva just doesn’t want to give a reason to go after something he doesn’t want: the 205 belt. Is Silva scared? Maybe, maybe not. More so, he doesn’t want anyone to have a reason to make this happened occur because he wants his team to have their shot at the belt. Point is, Bones is no where near Silva’s level. Log in to Reply fighter27 March 22, 2012 i think that dan henderson is the only guy who can (maybe) knock jones out….jones hate it if a fighter goes directly and put pressure on him….that´s the reason why he started his last fights like a monkey. henderson would do everything in the first two rounds to beat him. Log in to Reply failsonnen March 22, 2012 @lulz – Why? In order for Chael to say anything in response to that, he himself would have to admit that he could beat Jon Jones….which I don’t see him saying. I see him making a general WWE nonsensical blanket remark saying he’s “undefeated & undisputed”, but I do not see Chael Sonnen acknowledging that he could be Jon Jones so he should have no position to talk shit to Anderson on these remarks since it has nothing to do with him anyway. Log in to Reply Cletus March 22, 2012 don’t know if Bones would destroy Silva but would probably beat him outside of his natural fight weight. although i have heard anderson walks around at 220. Log in to Reply blow13 March 22, 2012 silva will never fight jones.and gsp will never fight silva.because their biggest advantage is their size.all 3 are the biggest fighters in their division.they wont give that up and loose( only hendo does that and wins).exept jones,he`ll be a heavyweight someday and then we´ll maybe see a jones-jds,overeem,velasquez fight.not that bad… Log in to Reply JoeDog March 22, 2012 Sonnen will end Silva’s run at the top. Why even consider Jones vs Silva? For Jones, it would be like beating up a skinny old man. If Jones gets any better, it’s a question of which heavyweights he will take on next. Log in to Reply mmajunkie March 22, 2012 @blow13 silva is not big for his weight. he is quite average actually. he beats people because of his skills. just like the griffin fight, he beat him no problem even though griffin is much bigger. Log in to Reply MangyMongoose March 22, 2012 WTF is he talking about specifically, “there on the inside.”? Bone’s wrastling? Log in to Reply Ruddo293 March 22, 2012 Just based on the size, i think Bones would have the advantage on the ground. Standing up, anderson would be too skilled for him. He may walk around at 220, but that doesn’t matter… It’s not possible for Jones to make 185 regardless of what he walks around at. Log in to Reply vsmoove March 22, 2012 I don’t think Jones would beat Silva easily because Silva is still much quicker and a much better boxer… but if Jones gets his hands on him, I think he would be too strong for Silva. With that said, Jone’s chin has not been tested so it would be great to see how he reacts to some stinging shots from Silva. Log in to Reply Oswald Cobblepot March 22, 2012 Bones would handle any man alive. Log in to Reply Oswald Cobblepot March 22, 2012 @vsmoove….do you think that Machida tested Jones’ chin? He caught him with a few super clean hard shots, kind of stunned him for a sec. Log in to Reply T'Challa March 22, 2012 LOL @ whoever said Hendo could beat Jones.. Jones said he wants Anderson to be his mentor after he retires and is not interested in fighting him.. Log in to Reply Rjcowger March 22, 2012 Why does everyone want to see jones fight even smaller people like Anderson? He already looks at least one weight class bigger than the guys he is already fighting. It’s like watching bully beat down when he fights, hardly worth paying for. He needs to fight JDS after they both win their next fights. I will say the hendo fight is interesting, he has more of a chance than rashad. Log in to Reply PitfighterZ March 22, 2012 @MangyMongoose: The translation is not the best, but what he is saying is that Brazilian fighters (especially in the 205 division) don’t have the habit of studying their opponents in detail. Silva is basically saying that, to beat JBJ, they need to figure out how he moves, get his timing, see his flaws, etc. Brazilian fighters don’t usually do that. It’s a flaw Silva has been talking about for a while now. He wants Brazilian fighters to become students of the game like American wrestlers are, or like GSP is. Log in to Reply DavidJones March 22, 2012 anderson has nothing to prove to anyone, if he takes a fight with jones he will gain nothing, hes # 1 no doubt, any mma fan or expert would agree, and if not, they dont know shit on mma and do it from personal dislike for the guy, which has nothing to do with what an athlete he is. Log in to Reply glenn March 22, 2012 i think jones wrestling is the key to beat anderson silva if the ever fight,of course if jones can catch the spider Log in to Reply Danby March 22, 2012 If silva was like 30 or so i think he could beat Jon Jones, but hes too old to fight someone with that much reach and that much energy. I think he’ll retire after fighting chael. Chael better ****ing train like a monster because this time anderson will be in it for murder. Also dana better have a crap load of security because if chael does manage to win, then he’s gonna have the first mma riot! Log in to Reply murell March 22, 2012 AWESOME! i have been saying this for a long time now,finally anderson silva admits it,Jon Jones would easily beat anderson. Log in to Reply mmafan11 March 22, 2012 Jon Jones is already BIGGER than most Heavy Weights, Reach + Height. Jones Reach 84″, JDS is only 77″ ! Jon Jones Height 6ft 4″, JDS same. Alistair Overeem 6ft 5″ + “only” 81″ Reach! Even Dana already said Jones will end up in Heavy Weight in a few years. The bigger Heavy Weights like JDS & Overeem will probably KO Jones. Silva would be too fast for Jones. I wanna see Jones fight at heavy weight. Log in to Reply MangyMongoose March 23, 2012 Thank you PitfighterZ, that makes sense. Log in to Reply dave March 23, 2012 it would feel so good if Hendo puts jones to a nice long sleep, because if his right hand connects it’ll be a nice long sleep for Jones. Log in to Reply blow13 March 23, 2012 @mmajunkie; when silva fought griffin their size looked equal and griffin is a big lhw.but at mw silva is bigger than the rest (maybe exept okami who could also easily fight at lhw).come on man silva is 6´3 with a huge upper body and chicken legs just like jones.thats why they can make weight,because of their chicken legs. Log in to Reply SEAN_VANCE March 23, 2012 Of Corse JJ would beat anderson…have u noticed the size difference ya dumbasses? JJ should be a heavyweight!….JJ would NEVER be able to make 185…. How bout JJ agains Overeem…thats a better fight. Log in to Reply SanClemente March 23, 2012 Silva VS Jones !!!!! Log in to Reply SanClemente March 23, 2012 Silva is the only one who can beat Jones!!! Cancel all fights and make this fight happen UFC! (before Anderson Silva hangs it up) Log in to Reply Killerkick March 24, 2012 anderson trying to be smart, instead he’s putting down his own country men with those words, what a dumb ass. he should have also said including me at the end as well. Log in to Reply mma made easy March 24, 2012 I don’t think Jones would do well against Silva’s striking, but would do well with his takedowns & trips. He leaves far too many openings and Silva’s accuracy and timing are far too good for the fight to go long on the feet.
