I'm curious to see if Jones gets frustrated and freaks out if he gets put on his back. If anyone can do it, Rashad can.

I think the Jones riddle will be solved very, very soon.
LOL what a hilarious troll job.. Rampage took a big punch from Machida and proceeded to take 10 steps back right into the cage covering up. Jones took the punch, a few steps back, re-set himself and came forward.. So Rampage doesn't react well to gettting hit either..








Stop trolling..

I do think that Rashad has a really good chance to get Jones to the mat, probably better than any other fighter we've seen Jones against. I don't think that he'll be able to keep him there though, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I am not sure where this logic comes from?

Problem with Shad is that, he cannot take a lot of punishment due to his chin. Not quite glass but, not grannite either. If he can mix in TDs and big strikes, the fight is his to win. For some, you would believe height and reach is a advantage yet, I feel Bones doesn't utilize it well.



IMO Bones has reach but, its under utilized, and had he better striking, he would be so much harder to beat. Yes, he is improving but, the shot lands, and he ran straight back. Yes, a fighter needs to catch their composure but, STRAIGHT BACK? If Evans lands like he did on Chuck, it will be lights out.

I got my doubts people but, stranger things have happened (61sec sub). I am putting peanuts on Shad. Placing my bet. I doubt it but, i would hate to miss out on this.
have you ever been punched in the face when being on one leg?

Hendo says Rshad is the better wrestler? Is he on medical BC Bud too?

Jones has savagely embarrassed every great wrestler he's fought taking them down and blowing their heads up with elbows and chokes lol. I don't think Hendo appreciates or respects the awkward way Jones rag dolls people. Everything he does has a purpose one he gets his hands on you.

That's a good one Dany, you made me laugh. Just like when he said Anderson got lucky lol

Excuses. Yes is the answer and no, I did not go straight back.

You think so? That seems doubtful to me. I think Hendo wanted the UFC to give him a shot at Jones before they gave Evans his shot. Also, it seems to me Hendo would rather be the one to beat Jones since Hendo likes playing the role of giant killer.

The wrestling aspect of this fight is going to be more interesting than I previously thought. I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out.

Rashad went straight back and got KTFO after taking the same shots as Jones and Rampage did. Jones recovered quite well and won in devastating fashion. Rashad got, well....Shadfaced.

I got Jones via 2 round TKO.

True that. I'm taking Jones by TKO in 3.
