Jones would take Silva down and beat him up badly. I don't know why anyone would think otherwise. Silva maybe can catch him but Jones will be far and away the best fighter he has ever fought and he's 38 years old..

Next up, your comments on why Nobel Prize winners in science are stupid
You didn't even understand the contents in that post did you!?

I never called anyone a coward, read the TS post and then google "hypothetical" and "rhetoric".

Genius.

But people are over-analysing.

Silva is NOT Sonnen.

Hell, Sonnen and Bonnar might have a good fight for example. How does that make sense in MMA math?

Silva is all about elusiveness and timing.

BJJ v Silva - Jones would have to double leg him. He wouldn't be getting clinched with him as freely as he did against Sonnen. It's a completely different fight and Anderson would come prepared. Plus, Anderson has offence off his back.

This.

It did seem like you were calling fighters who stray away from "super fights", cowards.

Selfishly as a fan, I want to see the super fights but I understand how much is at stake from the fighter's point of view and they have to make the correct decision for themselves as it's their money/future on the line.

No, the legitimacy of the sport is bolstered by fights, not undermined. Things like guys losing because they get poked in the eye do much more to undermine the sport than one sided beat downs. A guy talking too much then getting shut up is a very common trope in sports, a volleyball fan, a lacrosse fan, an MMA fan, we've all seen it and know it for what it is. But a guy wins a fight because he injured the other fighter with an illegal strike, that's hurts credibility bit by bit.

I don't want to see Jones vs Silva at this point because it would be a one sided starching.

I'm all for the top guys fighting, but that is just a stupid match up.

But people that worry about fighters legacies are ridiculous. All of the greats are going to lose their last few fights and then retire. That's the natural order of things. A few losses wont hurt Anderson's legacy just as it didn't hurt Sakuraba's, Fedor's, Mirko's, Randy's , Chuck's etc etc etc..
