    First fight was competitive, can't count out DC but Jones should be the rightful favorite. I pick Jones by decision 48-47.

    I wanna see DC work his boxing and not try to out wrestle Jones.

    Wanna see black fedor get on the inside and do this -

    Yeah I don't disagree with you here at all
    I do think the cardio thing is going to be interesting, Jones look quite tired to me in both fights as well (Gus and DC) but he was for sure fresher than both and found that championship level gear to beat both (I think convincingly). Going to be really interesting, I do think the Jones layoff is the more significant factor here though.

    I agree with this.

    Tough to write Jones off, but I think DC takes it.

    I doubt the fight will ever happens, but assuming it does before DC needs a walker, I'd take DC if Jon didn't have the luxury of a warm-up fight.

    Among the obvious factors of ring-rust and the question mark of where Jon's head and health are at, there is also the fact that his open-hand eye-poke defense has been made illegal in the recent rule-changes. Also, a minor thing but crab walk won't be effective because one-hand down (*allegedly*) doesn't protect a fighter from knees anymore.

    Well, I certainly can't fault you for that, given the circumstances of his last title defense.

    Dude makes poor life decisions. But his fight IQ is pretty fight high. Tom Brady on field IQ type shit.


    They should hang out. GOAT QB, GOAT fighter. Just let TB12 drive.

    Landed 60% of takedowns, out struck opponent 2-1, had his way the entire fight.

    Lol DC is a 40 year old man with a gut, and Jon Jones is the GOAT

    Goddam I wish we could bet cash on here. Obviously no vig, and plenty of u mooks would take even money on DC.

    I'll say the line will be Jones -220, but should be Jones -400. DC wins 1 out of 5 at best.

    Although I hate grapplers and don't particularly like DC, the answer is ;

    DC.

    You make some good points btw but I just can't get past how poorly DC looked against him last time, and the evident emotional distress that followed.

    DC looked awful against Rumble.

    His time is near. Jones is going to win.

    1) The suspension is almost up.
    2) He's been pretty quiet for almost a year.
    3) tough to tell from a guy sitting in the audience but he looked a lot like the guy that kicked DC's ass
