There is a difference.
Saying Jones would beat GSP is on par with saying GSP would beat Jose Aldo.
How long you've been champ doesn't matter, what matters is making competitive fights. Anderson is the most dominant fighter in MMA history, he's well ahead of Fedor, Hughes, Royce Gracie and GSP. The fact that GSP is judged "the second most dominant P4P fighter today" doesn't mean that much, because Silva has been destroying guys who are larger than GSP.
Does anybody remember the beating GSP but on BJ Penn at UFC 94? That fight wasn't competitive at all, and I think that's what you'd get if you put Anderson (who walks around at 200-ish lbs) in there against a natural welterweight.
If we want a catchweight / superfight, let's see GSP vs Vitor Belfort or Chael Sonnen.
Anderson Silva moving down to catchweight/welterweight? No thanks. I want to see Anderson test himself by moving up to fight a SERIOUS LHW contender like Rashad or Shogun.
