Wow that was funny. He will darn up Rampage, destroy Jones and beat the piss Machida drinks right out of him.

 

Dude you have not been watching UFC that long I can tell.

 

Jones vs Silva is the biggest fight ever.  They are the only two guys I can honestly say have a chance to defeat one another. 


Agree totally... Only a very stupid person can say Jones is over rated

By the way if A.Silva vs J.Jones were to happen. Silva would win if it's stand up fight. If Jones takes him down I think he will dominate on the ground on top position.

I dunno who would win the fight .... would pay $$$ to see this fight. First though should be Silva vs GSP if GSP steps up, but he won't he will make excuses to avoid the fight....

I don't think he's overrated at all, he's a highly talented and dynamic fighter.  I don't think he's unbeatable by any stretch though, especially in that weight class.  I wouldn't be surprised if he lost to any one of those 3 guys you listed, none are chopped liver and all 3 have different styles.  Maybe one of the styles Jones will have problems with.

I guess my only concern with Jones is I am still curious how tough he is mentally.  I think we will find out soon enough when someone gets him in a little trouble and we see how he reacts.  I'm not sold that he's tough mentally, not sure why, he just has that feel to him.  He's had things pretty much go his way every fight in the UFC and it's easy to fight well when that is going for you.

Yes, if they are both untouchable in their division.

I can't see Jon Jones losing anytime soon, it is scary to think that he is still learning and improving.

Trust me, Silva CANT BEAT JONES.  A good big man beats a good smaller man.  He's too big for Silva.  And too strong.

Practice? We talking about practice. Practice?

Pulla?  Pulla?

Where are you Pulla?

Jones just dismantled Rampage, "the best Rampage ever" as they put it last night.  Jones still overrated?

Explain how Rashad is going to deal with that length and distance Jones is able to keep while tagging his opponent with kicks and strikes to the body and head. 

1 down 2 to go I guess

So Jones has already beat the piss out of Rampage and Machida and now we will see him fight Evans.

Evans looked good last night eh Pulla

Almost no chance they fight now. I'd say 99% no... Silva is what now, 36/37? He has already talked about retiring.. Plus Dana won't let silva move up in weight until he fights chael and/or hendo. Jon isn't going to go to middleweight, plus Jon jones said he is thinking about going to heavyweight later on..

they would obviously fight at 205 because no way JJ can make 185. That being said I don't see Anderson Silva ever fighitng JJ. There's not really a reason to if he can still make 185.

If they do fight. JJ would be too big and strong and just take AS down and stop him.

The only guys that I feel that can give JJ a challenge at 205 is
maybe Evans (probably the longest shot but he trained with him), Gustaffson (he has the length and striking but wrestling needs more work), Muhammed Lawal (his MMA wrestling is very good and is comfortable on his feet but just got caught using steroids, and the dark horse is Daniel Cormier if he could somehow make 205. Cormier has talked about going to 205 to avoid fighting his buddy Cain.

I would like to see Bones fight a healthy Shogun.  I am biased though being a big Shogun fan but that was his first fight back from knee surgery and we saw how he looked vs Forrest and Coleman...It takes a couple fights to get back into fighting shape.  Pretty sure Jones wins the rematch but just not so easily.  Shogun will never be 100% again and this rematch will prob never happen since it will take a couple W's just to be considered.  I just think he is the only one in the division with the skill set to possibly pull the upset.  

I've said it before, there are plenty of intriguing fights at HW for Bones.  Doesnt even have to be JDS...Mir, Werdum, Browne would all be great fights.
