I don't think anyone can beat Jones except Silva, and I am not sure that even he would be able to do it, so that's the fight I want to see. I doubt it will happen though.

I believe Silva would KO GSP with ease. GSP-Jones would definitely be a crazy fight. I have Jones winning that though.... GSP is too small to implement the Chael gameplan against Anderson, in my opinion. For Bones though, if he isn't liking the striking game, and is conscious, I could see him punishing The Spider same as Hamill, Matyushenko, Vera, Bader, etc.

Would love to see how that would go down.

Silva vs Jones. GSP is too small to realistically have a good chance at beating Silva but I'd give him more of a chance than anyone in the MW devision right now.

Also I want to see Rogan an Goldy compare Jones's striking to Silva's again when he's getting tagged constantly! That comparison just pissed me off!

Silva vs Jones, same as SmileR said, GSP is too small for an even fight.

I don't wanna see gsp vs anderson. I would wanna see Andy vs Jones but not right away. I'd wanna see Andy against a few of the other lhw top 10 first. then to take both belts

I'm thinking Anderson vs. either; Evans, Rampage, Thiago, Vera, or Davis would all make decent next fights as a work up to Jones. I would wanna see Anderson put on a decent amount of muscle before he faces the larger Jones. Then it would be an all our war

Edit: He does have a score to settle with Chael first.. then move on and wait for a next top contender at mw by moving up to the next belt. Imo in their next meet Anderson will school Sonnen and put him out early. How many fights does Anderson have left on his contract?

Silva beats both.

edit: dont care to see andy vs gsp. give me andy vs bones, but i want to see jones earn it first. i personally would like to see jones vs hendo &/or rashad first. both should give him fits



I think Jones works Evans and Hendo.



i agree, but they should would push the pace on him, unlike rampage

I think Evans would be the toughest out of the two

I actually think Rampage did a good job of trying to push in on Jones, the problem is just that his reach is so massive, that he hits you moving in, and when you try to counter, he's standing 5 feet away already.

I think Jones is bigger than Anderson, by a larger margin than Anderson is bigger than Georges. In terms of weight and mass.

As much as I'd love to see Anderson Silva and Jon Jones go at it I'd still rather see Silva fight GSP first. Anderson and GSP have both dominated their divisions to the point where there's barely any fights left for either guy in their weight classes, whereas Jones has plenty of great fights to keep him busy at 205 for a while in my opinion.

In reality Jones vs. Silva will probably never happen only because most likely by the time the UFC feels Jones is ready for Silva it'll be too late and Anderson will be ready to retire before that fight ever materializes. I'm beginning to wonder if Anderson's going to end up retiring even before the GSP fight considering how long it's taking the UFC to put it together. All it will take is for one of them to lose before actually meeting each other to ruin it all.
