Anderson isn't a top BJJ guy. Top BJJ guys would tap Anderson, too. He has a very serviceable guard, yes, but I wouldn't rate his BJJ very high over GSP's. I'd say that GSP's top game is more impressive than Silva's guard. Condit has a very good guard himself, and in reality he had nothing for GSP as far as subs go.
I'm not going to breakdown Jones/Silva, because I have done it tens of times on this forum, and it is a tired hypothetical topic to me. I don't see it as a fight that needs to happen.
BTW, I would give Silva the edge in a GSP/Silva fight, but I don't discredit GSP's strengths and chances.
