I like Jones as much as the next guy but he has 8 total matches in the UFC. Silva has won 14 in a row, all against big names, defending his championship 8 straight times. He hasn't been beaten in over 6 years. That's pretty much unheard of.
If Jones makes it past Rashad, there is still Machida, Thiago Silva, Rampage and young studs like Phil Davis. There is nobody left for Silva to prove himself against.
Jones has made the LH division exciting and he is everyone's favourite but what makes him so exciting is that he still has some tests out there, it's so easy for Silva that it's gotten boring and he's now underrated because of it. When we start talking about Jones taking on Velasquez or Brock then we can compare him to Silva.
