So Bonner wasn't weak or washed up? (Compared to Silva) and Jon Jones isn't at the top? Please explain your reasoning.

A couple of Anderson's teammates f!ght at 205, near the top of the division... Machida is slated for a #1 contender bout and Glover is probably next in line if he gets Rampage and wins... If Spider takes f!ghts in the top 5, he messes up the order of the division and ultimately gets in the way of his teammates' title hopes. He respects his team enough to only take these kinds of LHW f!ghts. Yes, Stephan Bonnar is not in the same class of f!ghter as the Spider, but it saved an event which turned out to be a real gem from top to bottom, and that was really Spider's only goal.

I hope glover does get ram,page next so he can be knocked the fu*k out lol his defense is horrible and he almost got finished twice by someone dead as a doorknob on their feet so you know his strikes wasn't full power.. Fabios defense sucks and he leaves himself open for strikes let glover run up on rampage or anyone else like that he's fu*ked more ways then one..

Okay so you agree? I'm not looking at the details or outside interference's into setting up Silva's matches. I'm simply looking at the 2 men in the cage. I'm not saying Silva would lose, but it would at least pose a better f!ght than these one or two round TKO's.

i have no doubt in my mind that Silva will demolish Jones if they every fought. it would be silly for Dana to ruin the "indestructable" young guy that can make a lot of cash for the UFC in the future, having him lose to the legend that only has one or two f!ghts left.

you guys are arguing about some silly stuff...different refs have different "points" at which they will stop a f!ght...

Bonnar took a vicious knee to the solarplexus; he's done, fell to a fetal position and waited for the ref to step in, his body shut down, nothing Bonnar could've done...plus it took him forever to get up after the f!ght was stopped and he was still wobbling after he was helped to his feet...

the Maldonado f!ght could've been stopped earlier...Maldonado was protecting himself (not very well) on the ground, but he was resisting still and each time the ref spoke to him he remained somewhat active...I thought that f!ght could've been stopped as he was using the cage to standup, walking and stumbling without being struck...

1. jones isnt even that big of a draw

2. dana holds a grudge and doesnt care about doin jones any favors at this point

3. losing a f!ght to the goat doesnt impact his drawing power at all anyway. even after brock's losses he was still the biggest ppv draw.

i never wanted the f!ght cuz i though it was stupid to have a MW f!ght a huge LHW but at this point i really think they need to make it happen.

I think Silva and Booze respect each other enough not to f!ght each other and hinder either legacy. Silva obviously sees something in Booze and wants him to continue f!ghting cans and create a legacy, Booze obviously wants Silva to retire undefeated so them 2 f!ghting is counter-productive to both their career goals. Silva wants to go to WW and f!ght GSP. There's way more money in that f!ght than there is in the Jones f!ght.

Jones fans are delusional and don't recognize how inaccurate Bones is. I guarantee if he couldn't do half the dirty sh*t he does, he wouldn't be looked at as so untouchable. His fans aren't even real fans, they don't buy his PPVs, they aren't buying his shirts probably gonna jump off his bandwagon once he loses to Lyoto or someone.

And I'm confused how a Booze vs Silva f!ght is more interesting than a Silva vs GSP f!ght? GSP has more to lose than Booze.
