In his prime, Roy Jones was a blurring dervish of speed and power. He may have lost a step or two over the years, but he isn't about to be beaten at his own game by a mixed martial artist -- even one as good as Anderson Silva.
Plenty of feelings get stirred up inside the Octagon -- anger, frustration, elation, nausea. Boredom isn't usually one of them.
Yet Anderson Silva appears to be nodding off.
Having left behind a who's who of carcasses in his weight division, the Brazilian precision striker is quickly running out of victims. Rich Franklin was dispatched twice (once in his hometown, no less); durable Travis Lutter and Nate Marquardt were beaten at their own games; Dan Henderson, asphyxiated.
