I currently have these two tied at #1 p4p but I gotta give it to Jones when they fight...agree with C.E.O on this possibly being a blowout...I like Silva more than Jones but Jones is the only one who can beat him...Silva is a better striker but Jones proved against Shogun that he's no joke standing up...I think Jones by shutout decision...probabably be a gay and pound win

I've got the fight recorded, Bazooka. I am not saying he was going out, but he was caught, more than once. He was being shut out, period. Sometimes live is not as good as on the HDTV with multiple angles and replay. Silva was shaken, visibly. He was hurt, visibly. He walked out hurt. He pulled that victory clean out his ass. Sonnen had him and let him escape. Sonnen is no Jones.

I am not suggesting that Jones would steamroll Silva. I think that Shogun was damaged goods coming into his fight with Jones. I think Jones is the latest flavor of hype. He has a ways to go before he should be mentioned on the same level as Silva or St.Pierre. But I also think that he would be no easy task for Silva right fukn now. He may be too much physically for Silva.

It is easy to say that Jones isn't a hard puncher but I think Shogun would beg to differ. There is no doubt that Jones left openings against Shogun that Silva may well exploit, but if the Silva that showed up for Sonnen showed up for Jones, Silva loses in brutal fashion.


I think Shogun wasn't as bad off as people think...he said he was fine leading up into the fight...he was probably at 75%...I believe that first knee he ate fucked him up and set the tone...that, coupled with Jones' original and persistent striking style...the side kicks to the knees and long, straight hands....his combinations were simple and brilliant....he dictated the range perfectly...his finishing shots (the left the body and the follow up knee) made Shogun TAP.

Yeah....people are definitely underestimating Jones' power...I would say he's one of the most damaging strikers around...standing up AND down on the ground...

I still can't get over how he dominated Rua standing up.....


Also...I don't know if Jones can make a 195 catchweight...maybe I should take that off the subject of the thread.....the kid is HUGE...it would probably have to go down at 205...and there should be no excuses since Silva's fought there before...

There's also the fact that Dana wants Jones to be THE Face of The UFC...he's more marketable than Silva...I'm not sure, but I believe he made an appearance on Leno? after the big win...Politics could be in play in a Decision if it's close...


In closing, all things considered, and not joking whatsoever....this is really leaning towards a mismatch.


I'm gonna win a tank of gas and a Red Lobster dinner off you, Bazooka.

If it's a mismatch it's gonna be Jones on the recieving end of the beating.

As for Jones outstriking Shogun no biggie Silva will never fight Jones the way Shogun did which was lunge forward with wide shots slow and sloppy. Had Anderson landed the kind of shots Jones landed on Shogun i guarantee Shogun would have been layed out cold in the first rd.

Jones strikes are good but the accuracy and power are not there Anderson's strikes are sniper-like when they land there usually fight ending.
