Default Re: Would you rather see Anderson versus Georges St Pierre or versus Jon Jones?

Would much rather see Anderson vs GSP.

Silva is a great fighter, but he couldn't deal with the takedowns of Chael Sonnen, so how is he going to deal with the takedowns of a much bigger, much stronger wrestler like Jon Jones? That fight would be boring, it would begin, Jones would take him down, and gradually wear him down with strikes on the ground. Over.

Silva vs GSP is much, much more interesting.

Would a smaller guy like GSP be able to get the TD on Silva? Or would Silva catch him on the way in and knock him out? Or would GSP try to stand up and jab and box Silva like he did in his most recent fight?

This would be much more competitive on the ground, which is where both fights would surely end up, since Jones and GSP are both Jackson fighters and will revert to type eventually.
