    I think the point is pretty much moot, since Anderson Silva has repeatedly stated that he doesn't want to go up to 205 (despite having demolished Irvin and Griffin). He's having a grand old time right where he is, and he can maintain his legend by demolishing GSP if he can be persuaded to fight up. He's been Middleweight champion for going on 5 years now. Fighting Jones and losing would end his winning streak (the longest in the UFC). Winning would make him the champion, so he'd be forced to defend that title against guys who have a much better chance of pulling out a victory against him and ending his streak.

    He has nothing to gain and his aura of invincibility to lose.

    I actually think Silva would beat Jones.(at the moment anyway)

    Also at only 23, Jones will be fighting in the heavyweight division soon enough. He's HUGE for the LHW division as it. As he get closer to 30 he will naturally fill out a little making the cut to 205lb near impossible. Probably.

    He really isn't. He's super lanky but also pretty skinny, especially in the legs. He cuts from about 216, or thereabouts.

    No. Henderson took down Silva and Silva didn't appear to really have much in the way of shifting Henderson off him or finishing the fight from there. The bell stood them up, he beat him in the next round.

    Sonnen basically wrestlefucked Silva who, again, seemed to have no answer to a vastly superior wrestler. The only reason you don't have an American loudmouth as MW champion now is due to his notoriously poor submission defense.

    Jones has a high level of wrestling and more dangerous GnP than Sonnen. Silva would DIE, unless he could pull off one of those super-slick KOs early on in the fight, as we still don't know how well Mr. Jones deals with actually getting clobbered badly himself

    Im not sure about that. His frame is pretty simular to that of Overeems and he eventually found it impossible to fight in that division.

    I think he's closer to 230 or more when he starts his training camps... the link says he's 216 two weeks out from the fight.
