Belfort or GSP have the best chance at beating him.
After the Belfort fight I now question whether Jones can beat Silva either. Jones wouldn't touch Silva standing, and after seeing that arm bar, I'm pretty certain Silva can trap him on the ground as well.
Silvas threat of submission would keep this fight on its feet. Believe that. Belfort had alot of play in that guard but He just didnt have the leverage that Silva has and Hes just not as good in BJJ.
