    Would it benefit Jon Jones if he played the role of villain for the UFC. The majority of MMA fans regard him as a volatile personality and he continues to maintain the persona of a "troubled" young man with life being unfair towards him....if he were to turn "heel" would this not greatly benefit him financially as well seeing that many will turn out to see him lose more so than ever before.

    here is a question for someone who has 10+ years in combat sports : who wins Khabib vs Woodley. And why.

    please, answer with strength weaknesses analysis of both and speculate on how each would most likely exploit those. Thank Ant.

    Khabib vs Tony
    Both disputing the claim for #1 LW all time, evenly matched and with huge streaks.
