    do you think he will blow Jones away? I have a feeling he will coax him into a stand-up fight.

    I just keep thinking about that infamous picture of Gus delivering a huge strike POW-da the face. I think it's a fine line between who'll win, they're both Class A athletes after all.

    I'm sure both will want to keel over if it gets to the championship rounds. Whatever happens, I'm sure it's gonna ROCK!

    And what about Jones saying he's more likely to move down to middleweight than up? Does he want to chase the dragon (Machida) in that division next?

    I honestly think Jones is going to make an example out of Gus the second time around. I don't think this fight will even be close.

    In my opinion, Gus probably had his best chance the first time around. If he hasn't been training his as off and improving this entire time, then he will be in trouble.
    That said, War Gus, and I hope like hell I am wrong. Let's just get through Johnson first.
    Bones isn't going to MW or HW.

    Just wondering how many grams he'll need to cut to make weight this time.

    No. Jones will win much more decisively this time, if not finish him.

    I'd love for Gus to beat him, but like most I think Jones widens the gap the second time around.

    I still honestly think Gus has the formula to beat Jones. Keep the fight standing. The formula to beat Jones is to keep it at striking distance. I mean if you look at Gus, He is a very good technical striker with good TD defense. Jones is very good in the clinch and grappling. He is the far superior grappler between the 2 of them. Jones utilizes his kicks good and his elbow as well but in a pure striking match, Gus is the better puncher. I mean, DC was tagging jones despite the reach disadvantage. Jones doesn't use his reach very good. Jones has underrated strength and Gus knows this because even though he took Jones down, he can't keep jones there. What Gus needs to do is beat Johnson first because AJ is not someone you look past on.

    Same here.

    You never know, Gus could make it interesting or even win but I'm guessing Bones kicks his ass in the rematch.
