You really think Anderson Silva has a chance against Bones Jones?

I'm a big Spider fan, but Bones is just too skilled, strong and skillful for Anderson. It would be a domination on Sonnen proportions.

Agreed. Bones is a terrible matchup for Silva.

Anderson is just too godly. Just look at what he did to Vitor. And the Bonnar fight? God dayem. Unreal.

I think Anderson would have a better shot than anyone else who's fought Jon.

10 title defenses and p4p #1 tell me otherwise.

His chance is just catching Jon coming in in my opinion.

Silva's ability to finish a fight is unlike anything we've ever seen before (sans perhaps Fedor). While Bones is methodical in his destruction, literally ONE mistake by the opposition against Silva and its over. Its a truly incredible thing to behold.

I hate to count out Anderson against anybody. Jones is probably the only 205er I'd favor over Anderson but I still think Anderson is good enough to beat him.

It was a brief moment but Sonnen was starting to shine in the clinch, if that was Anderson Bones would have been rag dolled. I don't know if Silva can beat him, but if the fight stays standing Jones is screwed, if it goes to the ground Anderson is screwed.

Can Jones get it to the ground? Absolutely, can Anderson keep it standing? Eh.. maybe, it all comes down to what JBJ has to do to get the takedown. If he has to clinch it may be problematic.
