You're really underplaying how good Anderson Silva is. The guy is a freak when it comes to striking, has a black belt in Jiujitsu and has deadly submissions, dangerous in the clinch, can take a fucking punch and act like it's nothing, great takedown defense and overall the greatest fighter of all time as of right now.

Like you, I think Jones would beat Anderson, but it's not like I would bet everything I owned on Jones. Nor would it be a cakewalk for Jones. Silva isn't a fucking slouch, and he's in a completely different level then the guys Jones has already fought thus far.
