Evans Picks Silva Over Jones In Hypothetical Super Fight

“Honestly, I think… I would say Anderson would win. I think he would catch Jon standing up because I think Jon does a lot of crazy stuff but, fundamentally, sometimes he does it just to do it. But I think Anderson has a reason, like Anderson, fundamentally and technically, is better in that respect and I think he would catch (Jones) doing something stupid. If the fight was to go a little bit longer and Jon used his wrestling then I think the fight may go to Jon. But for the most part, early on in the fight, Anderson would catch Jon trying to do something crazy.”

Talks of super fights are here to stay and there is none bigger than that of a hypothetical Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva.

Rashad Evans recently went on record during the UFC 138Fight Club Q&A and as one could expect picked Anderson Silva over Jon Jones. To be fair, there isn’t a man alive that Evans hasn’t picked over Jones, so while the statement is an interesting one, it really comes as no surprise.

At least you can enjoy the full unedited Q&A session we have embedded in this entry. Outside of this offering, this story is just business as usual.
