Jones would crush GSP, just like Thiago Alves would crush Jose Aldo or Ben Henderson would crush Dominick Cruz.

I would rather see Anderson Silva fight a top-flight LHW like Jones, Rashad Evans or Glover Teixeira than fight a smaller man like GSP. Any of those three fights could sell 70,000+ at Cowboys Stadium, and none of those the results are sure things for Anderson the way GSP would be.
Jones has been champion for all of a year and a half.

GSP for over four years straight.

There is a difference.

Saying Jones would beat GSP is on par with saying GSP would beat Jose Aldo.
