Weidman showed that he's amazing in figuiring out his opponents...i would love to see his strategy against Jones.

You realize Jones finished Machida yeah? And already destroyed Vitor?

Jones has the far better resume. Far better.

I never heard Silva say he was ready for it. I only read him say that it could possibly occur. Silva made a lot of timid remarks and a lot of subtle back and forth comments contrary to the fight. Silva said jones would beat him and that he would not fight him at and little things like that. Jones also said similar things but there seemed to be some subtle resistance from Silva when you read his comments.

I didn't think silva wanted the fight.

Jones would verbally agree then Greg Jackson would tell him it would be the biggest mistake of his life.

Jones has been fighting MWs for years anyway. Jones is pretty much only big star aside from Rousey that fights currenty/regularly so they do not want to him to lose ever. But seriously can he defend 2 belts at once? Answer NO and UFC doesn't do exhibition matches with their champs. Free shot when moving up a division? No problem, but there are no good outcomes aside from a slight bump in ppvs followed by a dip and a beaten champ. Won't happen un less Wiedman moves up imho.

I would like the UFC to catch guys out on the spot though!

it'd be as one sided as a Rousey fight.

Possible, Jones is the best fighter in the world, but I wouldn't count on it.
