Again. Is this supposed to be some sort of slight against Jones? Who is on Anderson's level in MMA?
BTW was Anderson injured in the first round of his fight against Henderson? If Hendo and Chael can smother him like that, Jones can do much worse. Silva has a problem with wrestlers. That's not to say that Silva doesn't have a very good chance at winning. All that he needs is one opening to end the fight, but Jones is an extremely shitty match up for him. It's why Silva and his team want nothing to do with the fight. To pretend otherwise is silly.
