    not sure how many MMA fans there are on these boards, but over the last year or so its become one of my largest obsessions. between the crazy run of jon jones, maybe the largest event in ufc history of silva vs sonnen 2, and just the overall rise in quality of fights and fighters its been impossible for me to even think about trying to watch any other sport. anyhow i thought it would be interesting to get some responses on who you all think would be the winner of possibly the biggest super fight in ufc history.

    first off both dudes have said they have no interest in fighting each other, but soon both will run out of competition in their respective divisons (if they havent already) and will be forced to reconsider or look up. that could mean them both jumping up divisions and giving them each a new crop of fighters to challenge them. im not sure i see this happening ever, except maybe for jones.

    now if the fight actually happens i think id have to take the underdog anderson (so weird that he would be). something just tells me the mental **** jon jones face (a very lebron like athlete in the sense that mental/emotional **** definitely effects him more then a lot of other fighters) would get in the way when facing a fighter with the mystique of anderson. though i would be far from shocked if he lost because i truly feel that anderson would be at a disadvantage not only in size (dont think he has ever fought anyone with that much of a reach/height advantage) and in style. i know anderson stopped maybe the most dominant wrestler in the middleweights twice but jon would be a completely different ballgame with his wrestling skill and size/strength. not to mention jon would probably be the most technical yet unorthodox striker Andersons faced.

    anyhow i would love to see this fight, and maybe someday we will. any other mma nuts take on this possible superfight?

    I watched the Sonnen v Silva fight the other weekend. It just continues to blow my mind how composed Silva is. I don't see this fight happening though because there is a lot of mutual respect between these two.
