Went with Anderson, not noticing the pick'em option in my haste. It probably is a pick em, but if I was pressed, i'd say Anderson finds a way to win. Probably not pleasing to the eye

Im goin with Jones also... by way of unorthodox strikes and Superior Wrestling.

Stand up war would be amazing to watch. but I think Jones takes it to the ground and pounds his way to victory while avoiding multiple submission attempts.

Will never happen. Anderson is hell-bent on fighting welterweights at middleweight.

That being said, I'd still pick him to beat Jones. He's got a better chin than Shogun, and his striking is more technical. Jones would never catch him with the crazy shit he caught Shogun with. Silva's laser precision would too much for Bones on the feet, and Silva's got just enough ground game that I think over the course of 5 rounds he'd find a way to sub Jones if he ended up fighting off his back.

C Anderson's speed and power are hard to overcome on the feet but if the fight stays on the ground Silva will catch Jones no doubt in my mind.


Jondacon18 have you see Anderson fight? Anderson is the master of unorthodox striking he knocls people out cold with crazy sh*t and like mentioned above he carries KO power in his strikes something Jones just won't be able to pick up.

War am i hearing you right you picked master Anderson to take this. I like you a lil more now.lol

I like Jones but i don't see how anyone could say he is on par with Anderson in the strking department. Jones is not a striker by nature Silva is. Anderson knows how to move around the ring gracfully like a boxer with smooth feet movement ala a young Ali. Jone is more flat footedand doesn't have the foot and hand speed of Anderson.

Jones has a way to go to be an Anderson silva-like fighter and even then he may never be able to do the things Anderson has done.

Of course, who hasnt. Ive never missed a UFC.. but you Hardcore D- Ride Anderson Silva... Jones aint James Irvin or Forrest Griffin... Hes faster, stronger, and more athletic.. Dont know what the reach advantage would be like but 2" height advantage i believe in the favor of Jones as well as the reach.. cant think of anyone off the top of my head with similar size who Silvas already faced.. Dont think Silvas ever counted on fighter someone with a similar style but taller, longer, and more athletic...

Silvas almost been spoon fed victories tho... Jones' wrestling pedigree can prove to be problems for Silva.. i think if he does pull out a win itd be a Sonnenesque type of submission off his bacc. To be honest Silva isnt that unorthodox.. he may pull off some crazy shyt but its actually very technical and accurate.. The move itself maybe complex but it doesnt make it unorthodox (unless of course you throw and front kicc to the chops.lol)

But im convined no one can beat Jones.. if anyone could itd be Silva no doubt.. juss dont see it. Styles make fights and i think Jones' style is too much for Silva.. New School is in.(plus i like a good underdog) lol

Somebody here didn't register their vote. It should be 2-2-2 according to posts.

I'm calling it a pick'em. Silva has superior skills. Jones has superior physical advantages. I doubt that the fight ever happens. If it does, it will be the biggest UFC ever, by far.

Jones needs to improve his stand up and plug some defensive holes. I am certain that Team Silva saw the same vulnerabilities as I did in the Shogun fight. If Jones made the same mistakes against Silva he would end up twitching or submitted.

That said, Sonnen gave Silva everything he could handle. Chael had that fight under control and made one fatal error late. But that is the point. Silva is lethal every second of the 25 minutes of the fight, unless someone manages to punch his ticket to Twitchland or does the seemingly impossible- submit him.
