    There's a huge difference between Bones and AS. I've said this for awhile.

    Here's some facts and you can come to your own conclusion.

    MMA is full of proven top level wreslters and proven top level BJJ artists. We all know this, right? Hoping for answer from AS fanboys.

    In terms of proven skillsets and deep talents pools for skills in MMA that would be wreslters and BJJ guys, correct? Jon Jones fights them and beats them at their own game. Crushes and dominates them. Outshines their high level skills. Beats great wreslters and BJJ artists in wreslting and BJJ.

    MMA striking is mostly garbage. Will anyone(AS fans) disagree with that?

    Anderson beats guys by outstriking them and their garbage MMA striking.

    Who is the badder, more vicious, dangerous and better fighter? The one who destroys others proven top level skills in MMA or the one who beats guys in the shallowest shittiest discipline in MMA?

    Why'd you leave off fighters like Maia?

    Only Leben is a brawler. The rest are pretty well rounded fighters who favor the stand up game over the ground game.

    WTF am I doing.. I must be drunk replying totally cereal to this garbage.

    Maia: lacking technically sound BJJ
    Sonnen: lacking technically sound wrestling
    Okami: lacking technically sound wrestling
    Leites: lacking technically sound BJJ
    Weidman: lacking technically sound wrestling and BJJ

    Yup, TS' theory checks out.

    Okay then with your brain point out the hate. Can you do that Judas?

    Saying Jon Jones is greater then Anderson Silva in MMA is hate to you, isn't it?

    LOL, but why is it hate? Because you hate Jon Jones or something.

    Are there not All American, D-1, International level wreslters all over the MMA scene?

    Are there not high level blackbelts & ADCC champs throughout MMA?

    What is the striking equivalent to All-American wreslters and ADCC winners? Is Anderson or anyone in MMA for that matter facing them and outstriking them?

    Such hateful questions, huh?


    I would to see what your brain comes up with for a response.

    Waaah he said Bones is better then AS and gave viable reasons. Oh yeah...Well you're hater. Hehe I told him.

    Guys, come on. TS is right - apart from all the people he ignored, AS has only fought brawlers.

    they say sometimes you can learn more about your self after a loss then a victory. i think this thread starter will learn from his mistakes and come back stronger. or not but my post is solid so im not erasing it.

    You seem like another person who for whatever reason dislikes AS (my guess would be because you are a Fedor fan) Btw who are these great BJJ guys Jones is submitting? Shogun and Machida?

    This is not too far from the truth......but respect where respect is due.

    Cote....I didn't see him getting finished. Maia wasn't a brawler but that fight was horrible and he wasnt getting finished.

    He RNC'd a great wrestler in Sonnen....all be it after a great fight from Sonnen.

    MW is a kind of no mans land. With the way guys cut weight now a days, most of the talent is at WW or LHW. Anderson cant cut to WW and there is always danger against those bigger guys.

    Lets let the guy fight Weidman again before we trash his legacy.
