Anyone that thinks Jones could hang with Silva is nuts. When Jones matures that would have been an intriguing match but his current level now will not suffice.
you do realize anderson himself said he couldnt beat jones nor any other brazilian.....machida wasnt completely annihlated because of his sumo background.. and no anderson wouldnt get near a title shot if he had to earn it.. As someone else said, theres too many elite wrestlers at 205. Rashad,Davis,Bader are all exetremly bad match ups for anderson if they actually fight smart and decide not to bang with him ala hendo rd 2...... this is like the people who believe anderson /sonnen will be much diff than the first fight....since when did anderson get this magically takedown ability....Andersons TDD has always been bad, but hes good off his back so he doesnt really train for TDD.... the problem is with rashad and davis are there bigger and stronger than chael...and nither of them ahve shown to be able to get subbed.... davis even competes in bjj tournys so i esp doubt he would. As i said in my post, anderson knows 205 is a bad division for him which iswhy he has always stated he would never go FT. Anderson knows his prime weight is 185, he feels slower at 205 which he doesnt like and know it will hurt his game . in machidas case, he already has the TDD and he will likely be even faster at 185.....
bader, davis, and rashad will all fall. I don't see those fighters beating anderson even with all their tools. If they decided to take it to the ground, they will find out that andersons subs are no joke. ask chael or travis lutter.
