I saw Sonnen vs Silva and Sonnen vs Jones. It is an insult to have Jones not #1 in the p4p rankings. Jones is heads and shoulders the best fighter in the world. Sonnen easily could have beat Silva especially in there 1st fight. Jones simply manhandled him and destroyed him in all aspects of MMA. There is no comparison between Jones and Silva. Silva knows this and would never fight Jones I don't think. Dana white keeps mentioning a superfight betwee GSP/Silva or Silva/Jones. It would be no superfight between Silva/Jones. Silva needs to fight Weidman and GSP then retire. Now I want to see Cormier vs Jones. Jones may win but he will not push Cormier around.
Did you see Vitor vs Anderson and Vitor vs Jones? Vitor nearly broke Jones arm and took his title, narrowly failing to clamp the arm bar in and ending things quickly and swiftly. Anderson on the other hand made short work of Belfort, putting him to sleep in the first round. or perhaps you saw Anderson vs Bonner recently. Although Bonner went 3 grueling rounds with Jones, Silva ended his night quickly in the first round.
Moral? A beats B, B beats C, =/= to A beats C in MMA. MMA math does not work, we should have learned this long ago.
Ask yourself this, since you're making a case for Jones #1 pound for pound, when is the last time he defeated a fighter not coming up from 185, just specifically to fight Jones? Hint: it was over a year ago. Jones may very well be the best p4p fighter in the world, but he certainly hasn't earned the distinction by beating up blown up middle weights, especially ones who are coming off knock out defeats a weight class down.

Takase won by submission in ruond 1!
Did you see Anderson Silva (14-2-0) vs Ryo Chonan? Silva was submitted!
Jon Jones is the best, he is the best wrestler and fighter in MMA.

If you saw tonight's fights, you saw Jon Jones take Chael down almost at will. Jones can't quite possibly be that naive as to think no one ever respects his wrestling. Weird thing to be complianing about.
I see it as Jones directing some much needed attention toward wrestling to the mainstream media crowd.

Will probably go Gustafasson/JOnes winner vs Cormier/Machida winner. Unless Jones bumps up. Then it is Cormier vs Jones and then Jones vs Cain.

after elbowing them in the head. The lack of upkicks and soccerkicks really determines alot about who is going to win. ufc is far from a real fight. I think pride rules by an large forced the best out of different styles.
Jones submitted two bjj black belt with a lot of experience in submission.

Baskren is outspoken as being the best wrestlerin MMA - and most would agree.
Maybe Jones is speaking about his wrestling level being up to Ben's? That would be an interesting storyline.
