I dont id rather see GSP vs Silva. Bones would destroy Silva. Silva had a hard enough time with Chael Sonnen's takedowns and GNP can you imagine what Bones would do ? I dont even see this kid competing at 205 much longer.

hell yeah i rather see this than a silva-gsp fight. Unlike gsp, silva has fought at 205 lbs before and proved that he can bring his power up with him. Silva has been too ****y lately so i love to see jones humble him and vice versa. I don't mind watching silva end jones hype.

Silva would destroy gsp and send him back to 170 lbs where he could fight the same fighter 2-3 times after he defeated them

We'll, then it makes perfect sense for Silva to fight Jones. We know he has fought at 205 before so he's capable of doing it. GSP has never fought at middleweight and seems to be more interested in staying at welter - which I don't blame him. I don't think anyone should be pressured to move up in weight when they are perfectly capable of staying in their current weight class.

I'd rather see Jones face Machida than anyone else at 205. Machida is fast, and has shown a good takedown defense. I really anyone else as being that big of a threat.

Evans has trained with Jones, and may know how to put Jones on his back. That is the only way I could see Evans having a chance. That, or maybe landing a Hail Mary with his good hand speed. I just think Jones is going to end this fight with a powerful shot. I think Evans will have to get to the 3rd of 4th round to put Jones on his back, and I don't see him lasting that long.

Davis and Lawal could mature into threats, but they are not near Jones' level currently. Lawal clearly isn't.

Nogueira is a submission threat, but I wouldn't pick him either.

If Mo could control Mousasi on the ground, why would you think Jones couldn't?

I'm hoping he trained is TDD.

I don't see Machida being able to do shit. T Silva either, so for me it's Moussassi all the way !

Are they schedule to fight next? henderson vs mousasi? Whoever wins should face jones but i like henderson's chance of winning better. He always has that puncher's chance and is also a good wrestler.

Mousasi got dominated by a wrestler already king mo.

Winner of Kyle/Moussassi suppose to get Hendo next I think.

I'm pretty sure Mo would get KTFO in a rematch against Moussassi.

I don't think Gegard is the kind of guy to make the same mistake twice !

Honestly, I kinda agree with you.

I think Hendo could have a striker chance but overall I think Moussassi has all the tools to at least try to beat him !
