    If any LHW in history including Jones or DC tried to fight Silva on the feet they would get stopped. DC needed to resort to laying on a non prime Silva for 5 rounds to win

    Jones can probably do fine just based on his range.

    Wasn’t DC Silva 3 rounds?
    Anyway this is simply not true, getting hit by middleweights and LHW is a different kettle of fish

    Not Jon Jones his height and reach would be a problem.

    Andy would likely get the better of it. Israel has an 80 inch reach and is a highly accomplished striker compared to Jon. Jon's boxing is really lacking and a big part of his game is the wrestling which helps out with his striking.

    This might sound crazy but hear me on this: Maybe DC resorted to wrestling because he actually is a wrestler and has a huge advantage on the mat. He's not a striker and almost as old as Anderson.

    Jones on the other hand would literally kill Anderson anywhere he wants.

    I think this WITH the takedown threat ...

    ... without takedown threat .... nah ... Silva schools him despite the reach.

    A silly topic, considering he only fought two handpicked lightheavies before Cormier.

    Your argument is baseless.

    4 LHWs turned down prime Silva before James Irvin finally accepted. Silva ain’t no cherry picker.

    A miss on everything. He fought 3 LHWs before Cormier and multiple LHWs turned down the offer to fight him.

    I am not so sure about Jones. He is tough, but the rest, Anderson would probably beat.

    Anderson Silva has never fought anyone with the combination of size and especially the reach of Jon Jones in his career. Jones likes to use his kicks so that would keep Anderson at bay.

    I think Randy Couture could give him problems.
