    He had one bad night, Es normal. Jon destroyed Gus and embarrassed smith in the usada era..
    Jon beat Santos and will win the rematch.

    Walker is a more dangerous Santos is my eyes. I think Jon will be smarter in a fight against Walker than he was when he fought Thiago. Still, its interesting and I’d really like to see it.

    I think he is good, very aggressive and lets go!, but I still need to see more, I want to see how he is if the fight is not going his way. Jones is very very very hard to land a flush shot on, in over 25 fights Jones has only been landed flush on a few times, which is incredible. Walker won't be able to flying knee Jones in 10 seconds, no way, Jones fight IQ is the best in MMA. Walker would have to have many tricks and amazing accuracy and timing. I need to see more still

    I get you but who else is there?
    Santos rematch? Dana won't do it.
    Blach? Dude is too old.
    Reyes? Just as green as Walker.
    Rakic? Even worse.

    Face it, the LHW div is shallow as fuck right now. Jon knows this and will be riding his pseudo-undefeated record forever.

    Yeah I agree, that is the problem. And both Reyes and Walker will likely fight jones too soon. I’d personally prefer jones to fight jan, and maybe a couple of other fringe top 5 guys so we can see how Reyes, and especially Walker get on over the next 2 years. But as you say, that’s very unlikely

    Not very good. I've spoken to people who trained with him in Brazil before he moved to Thailand. They said that his ground game is pretty bad.

    What is that "incredible strategy"? To use a lot of lateral movement and kick Jon's legs? Wow. One guy just did that on a bum leg and almost won. I wonder if a real LHW mofo with even more power do the same plan - is it gonna work?

    I think that he’s legit and is gonna be in the top 3 of LHW, maybe even beating Jones.

    Something I dont like about his style tho is that he seems to be constantly looking for the big strike. Doesnt really seem too worried about scoring points. Thats great if you finish someone, but his style isnt really decision proof. He’s also super spazzy mode from the opening bell. I cant imagine him having any gas left if he enters the third round.

    That's one to see it, I for myself (+ penty more people) argued that Jones x Smith's performance was the worst performance of Jones career up until then.
    And Gus performance was also not great, but still not that bad.

    Where's the hellbows Jones? The guy who submit Machida on feet? The guy who got his arm semi-broken by Belfort and still turned stuff around?
    That guy was unbeatable, last weekend's Jones was just a regular(if not subpar) fighter, and has a pretty good chance of losing to Walker.

    If I tell you Marreta had a fair chance of dethroning Jones two weeks ago, would you consider that? Not even Thiago's mom would..

    It is fucking hard to outkick Jon, when his arm reach is greater than most ppl's leg reach (plus the eye-poking fingers).

    Prime Shogun could maybe do it. Past-Prime Shogun got wrecked. Currently there is NOBODY at LHW who can do this. Santos in a rematch? Dunno.

    I like the kid I think he's exciting, creative, filled with personality, and very talented, I hope they bring him along somewhat slowly and don't make him bite off more than he can chew too early, Jon is way too early...

    I’m not a believer... at least not that he’s the one to dethrone Bones.

    The real question is, was he given that name cause that’s what was used to conceive him?
