    I say yes. This is as good as MMA is going to get.

    If not, what was it?

    Jacare/Romero/Rockhold/Machida has potential to be.

    Lawler/Hendricks/Lombard/Rory would be good right now.

    So would Pettis/Khabib/Cerrone/Gilbert.

    T.J./Barao/Dominic/Assuncao was looking pretty solid for a minute there.

    Even the Strikeforce HW Grand Prix had me amped. And we got to witness the rise of DC in the process.

    No
    Jones will get caught with Peds
    Dc is 35 with a bum knee
    Rumble gives up when he gets tired, and has no groundgame, has to rely on powerpunches

    Relax.... Im sure jones vs gus will happen this fall. I know jones will be out a while, but it's january. There is plenty more time for a fight to materialize this year.

    I'm thinking with no suspensions and maybe a month or two in rehab, he could easily be back by International Fight Week and fight on the July 11 card.

    We won't really know until the post-fight tests come out, but for now it's not all doom and gloom for Jones.

    2nd fight in the UFC, 'nuff said. He's improved those areas of his game drastically since then.
