Anderson won't be able to grab the back of his head and knee him in the face. He will be out of his element and Jones will quickly exploit any fundamental weakness in his boxing. Jones is one of the best boxers this world has seen, and whiles he's no spring chicken, the man is still solid. In the boxing world, Omar Sheika gets much more credibility than Anderson Silva.
I remember when I was young and Michael Jordan said he was going to play baseball. A part of me wanted to see him lead the White Sox to a World Series, but then I came back to reality.
I think if Anderson was going to be a successful boxer, he would have been discovered long ago and he would have stayed on that path. Just my opinion.
