    Considering how close the Jones/Gus fight was, if Rumble destroys Gus, what do you think the vegas betting odds are?

    I think Jones will still be a favorite in any of his matchups, but it will be very close and Ill be picking Rumble

    Rumble has the KO power for put away either Gus or Jones... Not sure how hell do cardio wise in a 5 round fight if it gets to the championships rounds though...

    If Vitor can do it, Jones can.

    I don't trust this new Rumble resurgence at all. The Davis fight was impressive for sure and Rumble is always dangerous but it will be another Glover or Rampage fight for Jones except Rumble will gas quicker.

    Gus hasn't beat anybody to show that he can deal with Rumble. Gus has avoided most of the top guys and when he did fight 2 of the top guys he lost miserably.

    Rumble has a puncher's chance vs Gus and Jones. Nothing more.

    I feel Gus would beat Rumble, but I cant help but feel Rumble would have the better chance against Jones.
    I feel in a rematch with Gus, Jones will play Gus' game less and pursue takedowns better and hold him against the cage more. Neither Gus nor Rumble holds out against Jones in the championshop rounds IMHO, which is how Jones wins what WERE close fights in decisive fashion.

    Rumble, with his ridiculous KO power, has the better chance of putting Jones down early, which imho is the only way to beat Jones. He is just too good at keeping the pace into 4 and 5.

    So fighters never improve? 2014/15 me would make 2013 me look like a child. Fighters can drastically improve, theres too many examples to list.

    How is putting the best Fighter in the world through the roughest fight in his life and winning 2 rounds considered losing miserably?

    I'm just excited to see the fight. Johnson's got hands, and I mean fucking hands. He actually parries strikes and stays at range. He has an eye for distance and his pocket presence is amazing.

    Against Gus, though? Damn, what a pugilistic war I'm hoping for.

    I hear you, but there is something to be said for Rumble fighting at a weight that is good for him. He was winning that fight with Vitor for a while, after the weight cutting fiasco. Jones is amazing, and Rumble has to beat Gus first, but I am interested in watching what Rumble can do at full strength.

    Meanwhile in reality, Johnson has been tapped by Rich Clementi (a lightweight), Koscheck (a welterweight) and Vitor (a middleweight). While Gus arguably beat the current LHW champion. But no, clearly it is Gus who hasn't been tested enough.

    Well he also lost almost years ago via submission (before he started seriously training his ground game), so that's sherdog proof that he's a can and never fought anyone good...

    Rumble is dangerous, he has KO power and is quick for his size especially in the beginning of a fight. Pulling for gus to win so he can fight jones next, but aint underestimating tony Humble johnson.he a beast to
