    One of the biggest losses in MMA match up history.

    Ita very likely that Jones would have just taken Rumble down and submitted him.

    But you never know maybe Rumble gets lucky and send Jones into the shadow realm.

    Edit: We kind of got Jones vs Rumble

    Rumble is amazing at cutting range and was the only guy to beat DC in the pocket.
    Volkan got butchered in the pocket in the first round and he's also a blitz fighter

    Would've been an awesome style match up but Jones probably would've taken him down after a sketchy first round.

    Yeah but theres that HUGE what if, if Rumble clipped him. Especially with Rumbles power vs everyone else's. Jones IS very hittable lately.
    I wouldnt even want it right now, I'd want Rumble to get atleast 1 fight under his belt, shake off the rust.

    Why???? He wasn’t good enough. He’s extremely overrated because of his KO power and physique to go with

    Calling Rumble overrated <36>

    That man sent basically all the division to the shadow realm, except for Cormier and Jones.

    Yep. He's also one of the few JJ gave respect to: when he agreed with Rumble that he was pillow fisted its because he wanted none of that.

    At the time, it was a shame they didn't fight. But now, with hindsight...I dunno. Jones by UD or late round finish.

    I agree it would have been super exciting but you have to figure Jones by RNC

    That is what was intriguing about the fight. Rumble had the kind of power that could change any fight with just one punch. No other fighter posed a similar threat to Jones.

    Haven’t you seen what rumble does when he has any type of adversity?
    Literally rolls over and wait for a rnc.
    He just gives it to you

    Including the Bellator champ-champ in Ryan Bader. He obliterates every LHW ever except for those two.

    Very likely Jones wins by RNC, but would've been a fun fight anyway

    Rumble is the only fighter at light heavyweight I’d give a good chance of knocking jones out.

    it’s annoying as heck the fight fell through when it was originally meant to happen.
