Jon Jones Coach: I don’t think Jon Jones is a good fight for Anderson Silva
“You know what, I think with Anderson, Anderson is probably the best as far as the eyes going, watching an opponent and then knowing he can strike a certain time and put them on their ass. That’s what Anderson does and I think Jon’s getting there with his strikes. I think Jon’s much better, way past Anderson as far as wrestling skills go. With his stand-up I think Jon brings many more strikes to the table than Anderson has, a lot more variety. We’re just not there on a knockout type of shot, we’re going to get there pretty soon…I don’t think Anderson would probably want that fight with Jon Jones. I think, you know, Anderson would use his length and pick his shot against people. With Jon coming in at so many different angles from a long range, I definitely don’t think that’s a good fight for Anderson.”
Yesterday the striking coach of Jon Jones, Mr. Mike Winkeljohn, was a guest on Mauro Ranallo’s the MMA Show and had a very interesting take on a fight many fans are clamoring to see.
He believes his student would best the middleweight champion, Anderson Silva and thus proclaiming Jon Jones as the pound for pound king with the ability to take out who is arguably the greatest MMA fighter of all time.
With coaches like this around, hyping you up while still not 100% proven, is it any wonder why Jones may come off as cocky to his peers?
Sound of BJPENN.COM, what are your thoughts? Would Jon Jones put a hurting on Anderson Silva or would “The Spider” break “Bones”?
