iHazpoopz - Yeah, that's actually a little shocking for a fighter to just up and say that. Much less Anderson silva. Phone Post 3.0
He said the same thing about Fedor years ago. Phone Post 3.0

Anderson's BBC in my Goku - 

OMG silva...why are you such a hater on...silva..wait..wut?

It's always hard to believe you're a lawyer when you make the worst possible arguments every single time.

I have never had any problem at all with anyone thinking Jones would beat Silva.

By the way, how is Tweedale's ironclad case against Zuffa and the Quebec AC on breach of contract due to the blatantly illegal weight rounding going?

Look AS has said: "there's no way" the fight happens, he prefers GSP because he's "smaller" & it will be "easier", and that he wants "50 percent of the UFC" for the fight, all prior.

I don't like guys getting forced into fights. I think it's time to let all this super fight stuff go.

RileyPust - What a badass thing to say. Much respect.

And if Jon Jones said this? "UG: Jones is a pussie and ducking Silva"

Bones is the biggest 205er in the history of the sport if that makes any sense. Silva is not scared just smart. Be like apollo creed vs drago beatdown. Phone Post

Jones is to big for guys in his weight class let alone a MW fighter. Both should stay in there respective weight classes where there able to dominate. The more I think about it the more I realize they shouldn't fight each other. Phone Post

Glad to see Silva agrees with me regardless of all the vote downs I got stating that same opinion...

I would love to see how Silva would fight when he thinks he cannot win though. Would he be super aggressive, or would he try to keep his distance? It would be interesting.

UK Asylum - It cant be easy to admit that when people think your the best fighter in the world.
Actually i think it's just the opposite, if your the best fighter in the world in many people's eyes, what do you have to lose by saying that? Phone Post 3.0

He's my favorite fighter but I'd pick jones over Anderson ... Not saying Anderson couldn't win , but that's a nightmare match up for Andy Phone Post 3.0

This. Half of what Anderson says is to troll the US media and fans who he has a huge disdain for.

But is it really so shocking that Anderson, the MW champ, doubts he can beat the most dominant LHW in the UFC - probably ever? If he knew he could beat Jones he would be the LHW champ, not the MW champ.

Whether or not Jones beats Silva at 205 has no bearing on whether he's ahead of Silva in the P4P rankings. He'd have to beat Silva at 185 or catch weight to claim that and that ain't happening.

Jones is awesome but we've never seen Silva caught in a deep armbar from an aging, blown up WW. Just saying... Phone Post 3.0
Which WW was that? Phone Post 3.0

You're right. When Silva was around Jones' age we saw him getting caught in and tapping to subs from mediocre, non-blown up Welterweights.

 

 

 

 

Just sayin.....

After the Weidman fight is over I'm going to laugh when Silva accepts the Jones fight.

And people still think he wants to fight Jones? lol, he wants no part of him.

Silva fans can believe he's just trolling all they want but he's not going anywhere near Jones unless Zuffa absolutely breaks the bank for him to do it, but that's highly unlikely.

anderson silva has always been extremely humble. He doesnt even consider himself one of the best of all time.

CRMartin11 - I don't care what he thinks. I want to know if he'll try.

i think the whole point of saying this is to let you all know that he does not really want to try.also hopefully not as many ppl will want the fight as much if he says this...just in case he gets offered to much cash to turn it down and the fight gets made he wants you to know that he should not be favored and prob wont win so you are all not so disappointed.

Jesuz Christ. What is the point of this? To prove Silva is some kind of coward? What is the fucking point?
