when did i say i hope he loses? all im saying is jbj would win that or at the min be a huge threat and a outrageous task for andy to handle. andy knows this,but his delusional fans dont...and so fucking what about him sayin that they are all better fighters...maybe he truly believes that.

and that dont matter any way cause a fight w fedor or bj made no sense any time.him and jbj are close enough to fight to actually find out...but someone does not want to find out cause they think they already know the likely out come.

So his fans have a difference of opinion than you which makes them 'delusional'?

You need a show on Fox news.

The only reason guys like you want Anderson and Jones to fight is because it kills 2 birds with one stone, somebody you hate is going to lose.

Professional frisbee needs fans.


yea thats it, just cause they have different opinion.gtfo out here w that.im far from shallow and ignorant like that...the guy actually involved probably knows more about himself then you i or anyone else.i dont like how his fans try to tell other people what he really thinks and means all the fucking time and have a double standard for shit he does and says.that shit rubs me the wrong way.o,and can you read?i dont hate jbj or andy one bit.

the only reason i want to see this fight is cause its two of the baddest motherfuckers ever and would be an excellent fucking mma match!

LMFAO @ posters who are saying AS is not telling the truth after all else he has said too on this!

Leave him TF alone already, HTF can the man make multiple statements all basically saying the same fuckin thing and it's still not clear? let him fight who TF he wants to!

Let JBJ do the super fights @ HW, no other party (save Aldo) is interested.
Jones also said he doesn't want to fight Anderson, and cited that he didn't want to lose to him in the quote.

Oops. Phone Post


Jones said only weeks ago that he'd entertain the fight after his next defense. He said from the get go in Gracie Mag. that he wants the fight years ago. That was prior to when AS called them friends. JBJ not wanting to call out the smaller guy.

"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."

Leave AS TF alone. Leave GSP TF alone.

IMO this all is history now, time to let it go.

kyle223 - Not a big Silva fan, but Silva beats Jones 10 times out of 10 if Jones doesn't have his 84" reach and huge body type. Not Jones' fault that he utilizes his body to his advantage, but without his long ass reach, I don't see how people can sit there and think he'd still be as dominant as he's been. Listen to Joe Rogan during a Jones fight. He constantly says how Jones is able to dictate fights using his size and reach advantage. I think most MMA fighters will say reach is one of the biggest advantages in fighting.

I still think Jones would be a very good fighter, as he's extremely athletic, motivated, and very smart, but without the reach, he doesn't break the LHW record for most title defenses, and he definitely doesn't beat Silva.

Not sure why I'm arguing hypotheticals lol, but that's my opinion.
Sorry, I just read your first sentence. You are not a Silva fan? How can you not be??? Phone Post 3.0

I should have said he's not one of my favorites. It doesn't take away from the fact that he's incredible to watch.

Ya, and if Nick Diaz had a glass chin he wouldn't be as good, if Hendo had zero power he wouldn't be as good, if Lesnar was very weak he wouldn't be as good, if Nolan Ryan only had an 80mph fastball he wouldn't be as good, if Vince Carter only had a 15" vertical he wouldn't be as good, and on and on and on. All fighters/athletes have advantages. If you think Anderson's speed, chin, skill are not God given talents, you're wrong.

see this is the shit im talking bout.i quit reading after first sentence.if anyone is winning 10 out of 10 its jbj and even that sounds dumb as fuck saying.at least be realistic.not even andy, or his momma believe he would win 7 out of 10 times.yet there are others that think he probably wins 11 out of 10 times...it makes no fucking sense what so ever in any world.
if jbj had the same reach than andy it wouldnt be the end all be all of the fight.his length only inhances the skill he has that would already beat you most of the time...i do agree his chances of losing would increase.but to say "if reach were the same he loses all the time" is to fucking far fetched for my liking.

He is a smart fighter, there is no reason for him to believe he can beat Jones. He would be a huge underdog if that fight happened so how is he trolling?

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

What I meant was a blown up fighter from a lower weight division as JJ was by Vitor, a blown up MW.
Oh ok. I misunderstood. Though to be fair vitor has been a HW and LHW. But yeah I get what you sayin. Phone Post 3.0

The only double standard is sitting around waiting for a statement by Anderson that confirms that you are somehow right yet the fight hasn't happend. I can only imagine your self-satifisfaction when you saw the thread title.

^ This response is pretty much unfuckwithable. I grappled with the advantage Jones' reach gifts him just cause it seems so obsene but truth is everything a fighter possesses falls under the exact same umbrella.

Also, Jones would finish Silva imo. Silva always has a chance but the odds would have to favour Jones.

These super fights are cool to talk about but have a very small window of ever really happening.

With the huge assumption GSP, Silva, and Jones win their upcoming fights, my pipe dream scenario is:

Bones calls out Anderson for a super fight Super Bowl weekend 2014.

GSP announces a move up to the middleweight division after his win over Hendricks in November. Georges is welcomed to the division with a number one contender fight against Bisping or Belfort.

Anderson will lose and Georges will win.

GSP and Silva fight in Madison Square Garden as the main event on the first UFC event in New York.

I like Anderson a lot and he's a great champion, but why do some of you feel the need to make excuses for him? It's been obvious for awhile now that he doesn't want to fight Jones, and this is just the icing on the cake.

Jones has already said in the past that he doesn't want the fight either. The fact is, neither of them wants to take the risk of losing when they can take easier fights within their respective divisions. Sometimes fighters duck, and even champions can be afraid. Nobody wants to lose their title and all of the money, fame, and prestige that comes with it.

You can judge for yourself whether that's good or bad, but don't bend reality just so you can pretend like it's not happening.

Lazer is the one twisting quotes from a year ago into one pathetic post, and completely ignoring the fact that Anderson TODAY said he would fight Jones. 

 

Just like Jones himself has said he would, then he wouldn't, then he would. 

 

They have both made inconsistent and contradicting statements about that fight. 

 

Here is Jones most recent comments in depth about that fight:

“It’s not that he won’t fight me or I won’t fight him. To be dead honest, it’s – we both have a lot to lose. And we both respect each other a lot and we are both striving for personal greatness. I don’t want to crap on his greatness; I don’t want him crapping on my greatness. You know, we are in completely different weight classes.”

“We both have sponsor deals and things that are really important to us and a big part of that sponsorship package is being a winner, being a champion. And having us fight each other someone’s championship is going to go away. I respect Anderson Silva so much; I don’t want to be the guy to beat him. I don’t want to lose to him either; it’s a lose-lose situation.”

“If we were in the same weight class, it would be inevitable but it’s like ‘Dude, I’m dominating my weight class, you’re dominating your weight class. Some things were just not meant to be seen’.”

 

So anyone can try and spin it anyway they want. The reality is they have both been MUCH more open to this superfight than GSP has been for years. 

 

I don't think ANY of the three are scared of eachother. They don't want to lose, and in Jones' case (respect to him if he is being honest in that quote) he doesn't want to possibly be the one to dethrone Anderson, which is very classy of him to say.

kyle223 - Not a big Silva fan, but Silva beats Jones 10 times out of 10 if Jones doesn't have his 84" reach and huge body type. Not Jones' fault that he utilizes his body to his advantage, but without his long ass reach, I don't see how people can sit there and think he'd still be as dominant as he's been. Listen to Joe Rogan during a Jones fight. He constantly says how Jones is able to dictate fights using his size and reach advantage. I think most MMA fighters will say reach is one of the biggest advantages in fighting.

I still think Jones would be a very good fighter, as he's extremely athletic, motivated, and very smart, but without the reach, he doesn't break the LHW record for most title defenses, and he definitely doesn't beat Silva.

Not sure why I'm arguing hypotheticals lol, but that's my opinion.
Sorry, I just read your first sentence. You are not a Silva fan? How can you not be??? Phone Post 3.0

I should have said he's not one of my favorites. It doesn't take away from the fact that he's incredible to watch.

Ya, and if Nick Diaz had a glass chin he wouldn't be as good, if Hendo had zero power he wouldn't be as good, if Lesnar was very weak he wouldn't be as good, if Nolan Ryan only had an 80mph fastball he wouldn't be as good, if Vince Carter only had a 15" vertical he wouldn't be as good, and on and on and on. All fighters/athletes have advantages. If you think Anderson's speed, chin, skill are not God given talents, you're wrong.

Oh so now you're going to tell us all that we are wrong if we don't believe in God?

 

GTFO with that shit...

 

Also, on a serious note, Anderson has spent YEARS developing his chin, speed, skill to get them where they are. 

Jon Jones would have his massive size advantage over the division if he never trained a day in his life. That's the real difference, and what makes your comparisons silly.
