The CEO
This forum needs this poll...

I say out with the old, and in with the new...Jones by surprising blowout.
lloyd mayflower
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
The CEO
Fuck you, Lloyd...voting Silva to spite me.

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.
Warlord
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
SmartyBeardo
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.

You say Anderson isn't unorthodox thats why i had to ask have you ever seen him fight? Cause Anderson has stopped people with upward elbows to the chin and throws some crazy as strikes like jabs to the knees. Yes he is also very technical when he wants to be but he is also unorthox when he wants.

As a matter of fact alot of the unorthodox strikes that Jones throws he got them from Silva like the kick to the knee. Jones has even admitted to saying he's gotten alot of his strikes from Silva aswell as that crawling up the stairs thing Anderson does whne he enters the cage jones got that from him too.

Jones throws some crazy stuff but he doesn't excute them with the same speed and accuracy as Anderson.

You are hearing me right. That doesn't change my opinions about him though. Anderson is still an over-hyped product of the UFC, but that doesn't mean he isn't a good fighter. I've said it numerous times, he is the #2 P4P fighter in the world, though I have no problem with anyone who ranks him 1st.

My only problem with Anderson, besides his shitty personality, is the way he has been over-hype by the UFC to the point that unsuspecting noobs actually believe he is somehow the greatest fighter that ever lived. Ludicrous.

Jones would get brutally KO'd by Silva the minute he tried one of those retard spinning elbows or flying knees. No one please suggest otherwise. Jones's striking isn't 1/10th of Silva's.

Thats what im tryin to tell ppl but for some reason alot of these young MMA fans who don't know sh*t about the sport or the fighters think because there guy gets one great win all of a sudden he can beat everyone in the sport.

Jones can't strike with Silva cause he'll get flattened and when he takes him down he'll have to worry about not getting put to sleep. So no matter where the fight goes i see Anderson winning it eventually.

War I know you'll never be a huge Anderson supporter but i like your honesty towards this match up.

With that said i still feel Jones along with Jose Aldo and Barboza will be the future p4p leaders of the sport.

but I agree the most likely scenario is this fight never taking place...BECAUSE Silva don't want any of this kid.

Everyone thought, including myself, Shogun had the advantage in Striking and Experience...that was until we saw him get completely overwhelmed by Jones' striking arsenal...

Like you, I'm an Old Guard kinda guy....Shogun is my 2nd favorite MMA fighter of All Time...and no matter how off he was, he still got destroyed...and I have to respect that and evaluate Jones properly...

So when you say Silva is a 10 times better striker, I have to completely disagree...I'd say he's an 8 to Silva's 10...Silva getting the extra points for technique and accuracy...conversely, Jones is breaking dudes' faces with his elbows and crushing their bodies with his knees and fists...he's slapping crucifixes on thick ass Russians and ragdolling supposedly better wrestlers...

I'm tellin' y'all....this kid is younger, bigger, longer, and stronger than Silva...explosive as FUCK too...did you see him hit that Rock Bottom on Shogun?...laugh.gif


Anyway...in the end, I know some New Age fans out there may be overrating him, but I'm afraid a lot of Old School fans may be UNDERrating him at this point in time...


P.S.~ I like your analysis, JON...I see it ending up on the ground with Silva being helpless and getting manhandled...Silva's experience is all he will have if it goes down...

P.P.S.~ Jones may have some trouble with Evans due to the emotional nature of their situation...

Check my prior post leading up to the fight i unlike most here said Jones was gonna beat Shogun i was rooting for Rua but I just had that feeling Jones was gonna take it.

Shgoun and Anderson are two different fighters Shgoun is slow and wide with his strikes has no feet movement and gets hit with almost everything that gets thrown at him and on top of that his conditioning looked horrible. Like i've stated in the past Anderson is a whole different kind of animal when taken down he'll work from the bottom and standing he will kill Jones no doubt in my mind.

What suprised me was how tired Jones was getting yet Shogun wasn't really putting up a fight if Jones gets tired liked that against Silva he'll get stretched out.

As for Evans i don't see Jones haveing a tough time with him at all.
TheFonz
Gotta go with Silva.

I could definitely see a rivalry/trilogy building off a fight between the two.

PRETTY SURE JONES IS UP FOR THE FIGHT... His confidence is sky high at this point, which it should be...

SILVA FANS, DO YOU THINK YOUR BOY IS UP TO THE CHALLENGE?...

either way itd be an orgasmic fight to watch.. deff have you on the edge of your seat the whole time...

C'mon man Silva ducks no one he's one of those guys that likes to praise his opponents yet downplays himself as if he's no big deal(you guys get what im saying)but it's all part of his mental games kinda like a Pacqiuao but inside you know they know there badd asses if not they wouldn't have gotten as far as they have.

Silva will fight him because like most great fighters they believe they can beat anyone.
BigG
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

Jones wrestling and size will trouble Silva no doubt about it but my concerns with Jones is obviousley his striking(atleast against Silva)who is the best striker in the game. iIdon't see Jones pulling any of that sh*t he did with Shgoun against Silva cause if he did he'll get hurt badly. The other thing is can Jones go five hard rds he was already tiring against Shgoun going into the 3rd rd you can hear his corner worrying about it a bit in between rd's. Silva's condition is top notch.

Lets keep in mind Jones is still a very young fighter he just started haveing formal strking training two three yrs ago while impressive given what he has accomplished he can get away with it with the strikers he's fought but he won't get away with it with Anderson who in comparison makes Jones and everyone else he's fought look like amatuer strikers. Jones will realize he can't stand with Anderson within the first couple of mins.

This will be a tough fight for both guys but I don't see Jones fighting mistake free for five rd's he'll slip and when he does Silva will end it.

Agree with everything here, except that it is a tough fight for Silva. It might be an explosive fight, sure, it might even be a long fight if Jones decides to take it to the ground, but at no point would Silva ever be in danger.

Silva would decapitate Jones if it stayed standing for an appreciable amount of time. On the ground he would be threatening with submissions. Jones leaves his lanky ass arms exposed with his sloppy ground and pound, and any fighter worth his salt in jitz is gonna put Jones to sleep or make him tap.

I can't see it being that easy given what Sonnen did to Silva. He was hurt repeatedly by someone not known for his standup. He was dominated for 4 1/2 rounds by someone not even close to the physical stature of Jones. If Jones hurt Silva the way Sonnen did, the fight would be ended, brutally. Silva would have to hurt Jones early to win this fight, IMO, and he certainly is capable of that.


C'mon this stuff about Silva being hurt by Sonnen is BS Smarty you should know beter. I was at that fight live and have the event recorded. Silva was not hurt by that first punch it caught him off guard and knocked him back but he was never and i repeat NEVER in an seriouse trouble or hurt you could see right after that Anderson dropped his hands and let Sonnen hit him with two-three right hands in a row to show him and the crowd that he wasn't hurt.

Please watch that fight again and as for that so called bogus KD that Silva haters try to say was a KD in the fifth even Sonnen acknowledged that it was a slip the punch came right over Anderson's head.

Also Like i've mentioned in the past Jones isn't a hard puncher he does not carry KO power he stops his opponents with a barrage of punches, elbows and knee's he's not capable of stopping elite fighters with one or two strikes like Anderson.

QUOTE (SmartyBeardo @ Apr 3 2011, 06:40 PM) *
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 don't know what your meaning of hurt is but when a guy is wobbly, goes down, or can't protect himself are good signs of that. Anderson was never wobbly or hurt i just don't know how much better i can explaine it to you.

Like i said i also have that fight recorded and you can clealry see Silva was not hurt but it's amazing how some ppl try to make more out of that shot than what it really was. If Silva was hurt i would just admit it but he wasn't he was caught off guard knocked back by a good shot and thats all had he been hurt like you claime those follow up shots that Silva let Sonnen hit him with afterwards would have probably dropped him wobbled him or taken him out.

And the reason i say Jones isn't a hard puncher is cause i've seen the guy fight since his UFC debut he can't nor has he shown that he posses the power to knock you out clean. Doesn't mean he's not a good fighter he obviousley is it just means he doesn't have that natural born power in his strikes like others.

I have been in boxing both as a fan and participant long enough to know when someone was hurt by and punch and Sonnen landing that punch against Anderson was not an example of that.

QUOTE (SmartyBeardo @ Apr 3 2011, 11:39 PM) *
And I believe he was hurt and survived because he is a great fighter. And he was beat up badly. But we are obviously going to disagree on that and that's fine. It doesn't change the fact that Sonnen had his ass beat and failed to finish. Jones in the same position finishes it. Doesn't mean I picked Jones because I did not. Just pointing out that it would not be an easy fight for Silva. Sonnen wasn't and Jones would not be.


I can agree with it being a tough fight i said that aswell and it would be the most likely scenario but i could also see it being a quick KO or sub for Anderson like War is saying.
Warlord
First up, I agree with Smarty that Sonnen hurt Silva in the 1st. Silva never expected Chael to bang with him, and he was clearly buzzed. Was he wobbly and on queer street? No. But if Sonnen had stepped on the gas and gone crazy with punches, I think he could've forced the ref into waving it off. But he didn't. He was too fearful of Anderson's striking to try and go for the finish.

But that is neither here nor there. Jones, for all his hype, doesn't come close to Sonnen in terms of pure wrestling ability. I don't think he could replicate Sonnen's performance, nor would he be able to get in Silva's head the way Sonnen so clearly had done. After Silva pulled that miracle fluke out of his ass, he dropped to his knees and bowed down before Sonnen, placing the middleweight championship at his feet.

I don't see Jones beating that kind of respect into Silva. I see him getting sniped the same way Vitor Belfort did.

If Chael would have tried that he would have left himself open to Silva's counter strikes and got KO'ed himself. If Anderson was really hurt that would have been a good idea but he wasn't and Sonnen knew that thats why he didn't jump on him.

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.
