Source: Anderson Silva close to signing extension with UFC, wants fights with Bisping, GSP and Jones

 
So now he wants to fight Jon Jones? I wonder what Jones will say when he finds out Silva call him out... I wanna see that bout so freaking bad. If Silva stops Jones takedowns he will knock him out no doubt

AresSmashedPrahjuhdee - He's going to demolish all 3.
I would like to think so but I'm not sure about Jones. Jones may be Silva 2.0....he can wrassle!

I'd love to see Anderson beat Jones, just don't think it will happen. Phone Post

Age catches up with everybody eventually! Phone Post

AresSmashedPrahjuhdee - he's going to make Jones his son. even getting Anderson down won't be enough.

Silva is way better off his back than Vitor and we all saw how close Victor came to subbing him.

I have never bet on a fight but if Jones vs Silva will happen I would like to get sn bet with you on this. Anderson is incredible but I think Jones is way too much even for him.

Props for not (yet) mentioning how he is ducking the most dangerous fighter in MMA, Chris Weidman, with this proposed lineup.

Jones vs Anderson at a 195lb catchweight would be epic... Anderson would mop him up at 195.  Jones wrestled at 197 in college.

First Anderson should whoop GSP's ass at 178.... then he should spank Jones at 195.

Bisping beating Vitor is gonna be a major challenge.  That's a bad match up for Bisping.

As of now Silva would definitely destroy Jones. I don't see GSP ever being able to beat Silva at any point in time. I don't blame GSP for being hesitant to take the fight. He's used to fighting with a size advantage(not taking anything away from him) while Anderson has a size advantage against most MWs he's fought other gamed people bigger than him. What he did to Bonnar was absolutely fucking scary.

Anderson has been progressively getting better as he ages. Jon Jones hasn't shown us that will be the case with him yet. There have been lots of hyped up guys at LHW ever since Chuck Liddell was dethroned. His reign has lasted longer, but how many other fighters have we all seen get super hyped up over just a few fights, then they get figured out and are never able to put together more than 3 or 4 wins at a time. IMO its too early to tell with Jones.

I'm just glad that I get to see Anderson in ten more matches, and he knocked off that retirement talk.

Its not really sacrificing GSP.

If you look at all the angles GSP/Silva makes more sense.

GSP moves up, if he wins he is already the biggest PPV star he will now be even bigger because he moved up and beat the the king.

If GSP loses he is still WW champ, he moved up to fight a bigger man so he wont be hurt much by that, he will actually get credit for taking the fight. If Silva loses at a catchweight he getting older and is on the back end of his career and they could always say the extra weight cut hurt him.

With Silva/Jones if Silva moves up and wins you just hurt the stock of your future GOAT and a guy who is being lined up to be the star of the UFC for the next 10 years. If Silva loses most people think he is a LHW anyway so the moving up in weight excuse wont fly like it will with GSP. People believe Jones/Silva are the same size so a Silva loss even at LHW would hurt his stock.

GSP/SIlva is the bigger fight because GSP is a bigger star than Jones and the UFc and each fighter have less to lose.

Thread decimated by fanboy posts.

Jones would have a significant reach/length advantage. The key to Silva beating him would be to avoid getting taken down.

If Sonnens G&P was half as good as Jon's he would have stopped Anderson.

I'm not saying either fighter should be favored too heavily but I certainly believe Jones should be given a edge.

If GSP wins and i dont think he will, it wont be exciting. Silva wont sub GSP and GSP wont stop Silva. I don't see GSP being able to stand with Silva for any length of time.

I don't believe GSP is anywhere near as dangerous as Jones. Phone Post
