Jones is a bigger better version of Silva

Fight would not even be competitive.

Jones

Too strong , better wrestling , superior top game

Has the stand up to hang with Anderson , but not enough skills to beat him there IMO

Jones TKO 2 GnP

Jones had a real hard time even budging Rampage in wrestling terms (not that there's any sort of shame in that but hey) , Velasquez would throw Jones round the cage like a grappling dummy , dos Santos doesnt have a reach disadvantage against Jones and has better boxing / hand speed IMO , Overeem is a solid wrestler with excellent stand up , he hangs with Jones IMO

I dont see Jones beating any of them 3 , ill retract there , i dont see him beating Cain or Jr , Overeem gets the slightest nod ahead of Jones but i wouldnt be bowled over if Jones beat him

As for the heavies , who knows , if Jones lets his hands and legs go , and stays mobile how the **** would Lesnar , Carwin , Mir and the likes live with him

Actually, Jones has a 7.5in reach advantage over Dos Santos. I think JDS smashes him anyway, but thought I'd point that out as 7.5 inches is still a lot, not something to be overlooked completely.

When i said that i thought i was saying that in confidence without checking the stats , dos Santos does appear to be long when he fights , quite right , not to be over looked

What we have to understand is that no one budges Rampage (hes a rock) and Jones did it when he really wanted too. He took him down twice with what I would say average difficulty. He controlled the clinch fairly easily. He is obviously stronger than Rampage and hes a 24 year old who hasnt filled out yet..

As for the striking, at 24 year old Silva didnt have Jones striking. Give him two years and hed be doing amazing things.

Most people dont understand Jon Jones, heres a guy that took up MMA/Martial arts 3 years ago. That alone makes him the greatest talent MMA has even gotten a sniff at. Oh but he was a wrestler, ok someone show me a 24 year old wrestler even close to his level.

Silva started training muay thai when he was around 15 so im pretty sure he had better striking than Jones at 23
