    I'm really not and here's why. There is no indication what so ever that Gustafssons first close fight with jones was anything but a fluke. He has lost every single big fight of his carreer. I also doubt he is anywhere near the fighter he was when fighting Jones (same is true of Jones, though). I really don't see an upset here in the making, and I frankly think Jones will win solidly.

    Do you guys share my sentiments or are you actually excited about this shit?

    I never get excited for fights anymore until they're actually in the cage

    Gus hasnt tested positive for steroids where as Jones has, twice. It's more interesting to see if he actually fights clean and if so, how well he does.

    Gus has been inactive as well so it's really a mystery how this fight will go. I will definitely be excited come fight time and if you're truly a fan you will be too.

    Not excited at all. Don't find Gus entertaining or worthy of fighting for belt so soon. Even though there's not much left to the division. It's probably his whiny entitled attitude more than performance.

    And they'll probably catch Jones trying to drown an endangered species in coke before end of the week

    Whats wrong with you. That was one of the only time Jones are beat up and challenged.

    If you are going down play it like that why even be an MMA fan

    Im just happy that the end of the year card ( My only vacation time each year) isn't a WMMA headliner for the 3rd year in a row like it was going to be.

    Of course I am excited. Gus is the only one jones fights who has the same height and reach.

    Gus beats rumble 9/10 most times.
    Gus dropped DC and was doing well.

    Gus is a very good fighter who, IMO, has the best shot at beating jones.

    So yes, I am excited.

    Yeah, I'm kinda the same.

    Number one, can't stand Juicehead Cheater. And there is no reason he won't be juiced to the tits again, and probably win handily.

    Then the countdown to his umpteenth F-Up will commence.

    Add.....Rinse.....Repeat.

    I guess. I think a lot of people wanted to see a rematch years ago while they were at their peaks. Keep in mind Gus was Ko'd by Rumble and Jon Jones might piss hot again. Rematches years down the road usually don't live up to the hype IMO.

    Hell yes.

    I love watching jones get punched in the face.

    It feels right to me.

    You're delusional if you think Gus ever beats Rumble.

    Excited is a strong word but I see no reason to not be looking forward to that fight. The first one was awesome.

    Should be a good fight. The first one was close. Both guys have’t really fought in awhile. Would be funny if they gassed early

    It was close but Jones took him apart enough in the last round. I don't think this one will be close. Jones won't run away with it, but it will be a solid win.

    It was one of the best fights of all time

    Both men usually put on great fights

    I can still enjoy a great fight even if I'm annoyed with the result
