Jon Jones...Hes literally destroyed everyone...Guys he was an underdog too...
Chael almost beat Silva....and thats a really weak division...Nobody well rounded at all...
Jon Jones crushed Shogun who is a very very well rounded fighter...I mean these guys were champions at a time....Who does Silva have a win over that was a champion?
Just froma competition level withing the division Jon Jones is a night mare for guys that are well nightmares for many many years....
IN a superfight Jones would crush Silva like he was Matt Hamill...
A wrestler will beat Silva...too bad theres really only one wrestler in his division...
I would put Jones 3rd (same way the article does) after GSP and The Spider.
The only reason MW looks weak is because Anderson has cleaned it out.
This guy beat:
Leben (great chin, good striker, well rounded)
Rich Franklin (very well rounded former UFC champ)
Nate Marquardt (very well rounded, strong grappler, former king of Pancrase)
Dan Henderson (multiple division champ in Pride and Strikeforce, top level wrestler, very well rounded)
Maia (amazing grappler)
Cote (powerful striker)
Belfort (well rounded, great striker, former UFC champ)
Sonnen (good wrestler)
Okami (good wrestler, well rounded)
Leites (good grappler)
Lutter (good grappler)
Irvin (out of weight class)
Forrest (former UFC champ, much bigger, out of weight class, well rounded, good grappler)
He's fought a couple great wrestlers, many great grapplers, many good strikers, and several former champs. Basically everything you said in your post is wrong.
He's beaten them all and finished most of them.
You can't argue that he's not the most dominant. Trying to do so just makes you look like a hater and you're not convincing anyone.
