Of course not, but I have my own experience. I have my reasons

See bold.

Good points, and I can't really disagree with what has been said. Definitely something to think about. What I was driving at is that if the two were to square off I don't think we will see JJ being able to out muscle Anderson Silva. I believe that Anderson Silva's takedown defense is strong enough to hold off JJ.

Who knows, maybe we will find out someday.

DLH fought for a MW Title, and Chavez fought as low as the Bantamweight limit. By the time the two squared off Chavez was a blown up WW.... I don't know what you think, but strength will not always beat technique.

I disappeared because it was 9 in the morning when I replied and had spent the next 10 hours helping my women and her family (3 women and a child) move into their new place. Not to mention that I got an education to finish. I spend more time on here than I should, and now ESB gets in the way of life... It use to be the other way around
Oh really, thank you for that in-sight Ill fill in the blanks on my calendar dated 1991

De La Hoya sparred Chavez Sr when he was 17 and bullied him, they called off the spar because Chavez was getting a pasting, Chavez was a seasoned world champion, it was merely an example

Jones has his man strength Bob, I'm not sure you can go anywhere else defending that statment mate! He is a man, man strength comes through about age 22-25 after 25 its more a question of becoming seasoned not so much dynamic physical attributes
