    But anyone else notice how worked up DC looked. I want him to win. Big fan...maybe I am reading into something I never read into...but his eyes were very red. He couldn't stand still either. I just hope he can calm down. Too much of that energy can be a bad thing.

    I noticed it, too, but with a guy who has been through and achieved as much as he has, I wouldn't read too much into it.

    There's definitely a chance he can experience an adrenaline dump in the first couple of rounds. That and the weight cut could cause problems in the later rounds. Hopefully he'll have Jones out of there before then.

    AKA camp, wrestling machine, grand prix winner when nobody gave him a chance. He was just trying to sell the fight.

    He was the same way before his Olympic matches. Some guy that trained with him for the Olympics said he is a psycho before he goes out there to perform. Biggest moment of his life. He's ready.

    Yeah he looks psyched and focus. Looks like Jones is playing the calm guy role for the camera but hes definitely worried.

    Hopefully he can get some sleep anyways. With all that energy. I have tremendous respect for that guy.

    Honestly looking at both guys I think both of them legitimately think they are going to blow through the other.

    I'm pretty sure they do but Jones has so much more to lose.

    What I did notice was how good jones looked. Weighed in at 205 with long pants on. He could have probably made 203. He was ripped. Obviously in tremendous shape.

    I'm definitely kind of concerned. Most of the animosity must be genuine, but there's a ton of salesmanship going on. I think DC has really had to force a lot of his side of the equation. He was really humble and circumspect when he came over from Strikeforce--not to mention the huge, solemn honor of captaining the Olympic team. Being a jackass doesn't come natural to him.

    I'm worried he's going to gas mentally/emotionally and lose badly. That we're going to hear a lot of comments about how he lost because he let himself get too caught up in the hype.

    He looked pumped as fuck. Probably won't get too much sleep tonight!

    Jones was trying to play it cool.

    This is what I noticed as well, and it kind of surprised me when he didn't take off the pants to weigh in. He's been talking up how in-line his weight has been, and how hard he's been training. This appears to back that up.

    He's been in the fucking Olympics, man, representing his country. This is small potatoes compared to that.
