Rumble plods, he has sick power and great technique with his striking. Apparently most of you don't actually train tho, cause his footwork isn't just bad, it's atrocious. Guss would move around him and box him up. Like I said he wouldnt stand but a punchers chance. However, the fact that JBJ doesn't have the movement such as gus, would make for a jones/rumble matchup being very competitive. I can't believe it's not obvious that his footwork would be exposed against Gus. I am a JBJ fan and have been for years, so I am unbiased.

I would be more concerned if Gus fought a strong wrestler like DC.
Did you not watch the fight? Manuwa landed several shots on Gus. Notably a strong left hook, and a body shot.

Gus then took him down for the rest of the round

Even in the 2nd round the striking was even until Gus got him in the MT clinch and rocked him a knee, then finished him

Rumble bandwagon jumpers have always been retarded

Good victory from him though

I see Bader vs OSP winner for him next and he beats Bader easily

Rumble can only dream achieve a fraction of the success Jones has but if you compare his accomplishments with Gus it's a whole other story.

Rumble beating Phil Davis and Nog is actually better than anything Gus has ever done...losing to Jones and beating that british guy (malumba or whatever his name is).

People said the same thing about Gus before he fought Jones.

So appearently beating Shogun and Thiago Silva means nothing? Along with the fact that hes pretty much outclassed everyone else hes beat, including your boy Bones.

Plus Gusto gets bonus points for not getting yolked out by a 155 gatekeeper.

I honestly think Rumble has a decent chance. I don't think he should be the favourite or anything. But he has looked pretty great in his last 2 fights. It's hard to judge how a fight would go down before it happens, you can compare styles or performance against similar opponents or quality of said opponents, but in the end anyone can win any day.
