I think Rashad will win by TKO by the way just to get that out in the open.
I think this is the best LHW fight in years. Both guys in their primes and highly skilled. I see a competitive fight for 2 rds where Jones is getting the better of the striking, using his range, jab and kicks. Shad will look to force the action by shooting for single and double legs and trying to get off his punches in close. I think by round 3 Rashad is going to have a tougher time closing the distance and getting his hands on Jon. I think he will start to get broken down by the range and eventually Jon takes him down from the clinch. Lands some elbows, Works to get the back, and look to sink in that RNC like he did with Rampage.. That's my take but should be a hell of a fight..

Can't wait..

Or a last-10-seconds flying triangle like he did against Page. Jones is a mindfucker, for sure.

Good deal, I'm very excited for this too. Lots of good title fights coming up.

I wonder if Jones will be more hesitant to throw kicks because it may make it easier for Rashad to take him down. We've also seen that Rashad has good enough GNP to deal significant damage so I would imagine Jones would avoid being on bottom at all costs.

I will say what followed this I didn't care for much.

You want everyone to fight with what they have naturally then everyone has to play by the rules...Nothing artificial at all. NOTHING. Just eat right, and exorcize.

That would be the only fair way to do it....

Of course it's a boy's dream, and would never ever happen...You try that you can say goodbye to the sports industry.

Some feel it's not right for a 40 year old many to supplement testosterone to the same limits as everyone else has to stay at.

But a 25 year old taking OTC PED's, etc spiking his own testosterone, red blood cells, and electrolytes? That's somehow ok?
In a perfect world, yes, I would like everyone to be on the most level and natural playing field possible.

If we are drawing lines, I would start it a lot farther back than testosterone. I know there are suppliments that arent harmful, and are available to everyone. Taking in more protein or amino acids is one thing. Fortifying your testosterone level is too far.

Is it just testosterone you're concerned about?

How about red blood cells, or electrolytes?

For instance 25 year old with no testosterone dysfunction can use OTC products to raise their levels. They can do much more with red blood cells, etc...

I don't see how it's any different than what Dan is doing, if fact it's more effective.

OTC products are not going to work for Dan, but TRT will....Don't see why harnessing new age medicine should be frowned upon if they are following rules.

This. And if Jones puts Shad on his back even once it's over.
