Alrighty.



On subject, the only guy I see coming close to taking the center of the octagon from Rumble is DC. Gus would do better to keep him at a distance and use a lot of lateral movement, While Jones should fight him in the clinch or keep him as far away as possible.
He definitely has insane power but I think Rumble could eat a couple of them. Thats what I mean. Not knocking on Shogun hes one of my favorites.

glover would go to his wrestling if they met, no way he backs him up standing.
Hits harder? Did you measure this?

I think it'd hilarious how far some shove rumbles pole in their throat. They start acting like he's unbeatable or never backed up. Go watch the Koscheck or Vitor fight.

He cRumbles under pressure and wilts like a delicate rose. Jones, gus, DC, Glover, hendo, most anyone at heavyweight would easily back him up. Why do you think he's not at heavyweight?

The dude is exciting and decent, but he beat old Lil nog and Davis, and couldn't even finish Davis. He will falter every time he's pressured, he'll become a nice gatekeeper.

Jon Jones would hunt Rumble from one corner of the octagon to the other. He just goes forward other than moving away from shots, but he is always walking forward.

Maybe Lil Nog and Phil Davis made him look scarier then usual, I don't know.

But even Arlovski was extremely cautious around him, and that sends a message

Not unbeatable, but I don't think a lot of guys would be excited to go toe2toe with him and come out on top other then a 2011 Dan Henderson.
