silva vs bones is the only fight relevant for both fighter no one else in there respective divisions can give them any trouble
I think Silva vs GSP is also very relevant.
I think both GSP and Jones pose interesting challenges for Sivla but for different reasons. Jones brings massive physical advantages. He is taller than Silva, he's got better reach, he's younger, he's faster, he's stronger.....ect. At the same time, Silva would bring a massive experience advantage to the fight as well as being a much more technical striker and submission fighter. Not to mention, Silva is one of those guys who just finds a way to win.
GSP brings interesting challenges for another reason. He is a little bit smaller than Silva, true. However, he's got better MMA wrestling than Chael Sonnen (IMO) and also a more overall skill set that would allow him to take full advantage of his wrestling advantage. While Chael could take Anderson down, he basically just had to maintain position and try to land ground and pound once he got there. GSP will be much better equipped to pass guard, get dominant positions, defend submissions, and work for his own submissions. GSP is also much better than Chael on the feet and will be able to hang with Anderson in that element.
I would like to see Anderson fight both men (provided he wins the first match) before he retires.
