Easily the best promo they've ever done.

I'm so excited for this match up. I got Shogun by KO.

It'll be youth and technique vs age and experience.

Is Jones ready for the step up on short notice? That's the question.
He'll have to be at the very top of his game for this one.

Shogun has been there and done that and got the T-Shirt to prove it.

I think people will be surprised at how easily Shogun wins. Jones has fought no one near the ability of Shogun which I believe will show come fight night.

I agree, he was hesitant against Bader. If he's as scared of Shogun as he was Bader he's going to sleep.

Wow he was hesitant against bader? HE fought brilliantly, just because he stand stand up much like he normally does. He dominated a guy he was scared of haha great analysis ladies. Rua is a great fighter but bones Jones has a great chance of winning the crown.

Rua is a good fighter but has gaping holes, Jones is a young warrior who exposes holes, he will destroy/dominate Rua IMO, to fast,explosive,decisive and effective!!

When was Jones scared? I remember him attacking Bader for much of the fight. Please let me know when Bader did anything to back Jones up the whole fight.

I dont think so. He is cautious and you can see that with his stand up fight against Bader, Jones shows that he fights smart knowing Bader has power to KO him.

Yes. Jones fought no one near Shougun pre-Pride era. Who has Rua fought during his stint in UFC? only Machida, a stance-tailor made against MT.

Bones is a bad match up for Shogun... I am not saying Bones is gonna win, but there is gonna be a lot of elbows from the guard.

Yeah, that fight looked like every other Jon Jones fight. It went exactly like Matyushenko, Vera, Hamil etc. I dunno what I was thinking callimg him hesitent. He showed no respect for Bader's power at all.

He was scared of Bader's hands. All I'm saying is if he gives Shogun the same respect it will not work as well.

I don't know how "hesitant" translated to being "backed up". I can't give you an example, but I never made any claims of Bader doing anything right.

Stylistically bad for Shogun? Rampage, Rogerio Nog, Namekawa, Randleman, and Coleman are all grapplers. Of course these guys arn't Bones Jones, but his striking is whats unorthodox. His wrestling is very much a Dan Gable style. Good low Freestyle take downs and good Greco-Roman throws. It's a little difficult to judge his Catch in guard given he hasn't shown us much, but going off the submissions I'd assume he's more comfortable with Greco-Roman chokes. Until I see him go for a knee bar or ankle lock or something I'm going to assume these holds are more difficult for him. Shogun matches these skills sets with Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Muay Thai tosses are similar to Greco-Roman throws. BJJ is similar to Catch Wrestling. The stand up game is Orthodox Muay Thai vs Unorthodox ? elbows Jones doesn't really have any training in a specific striking sport.

Who has he fought in the UFC other than Machida? Chuck Liddell and Mark Coleman arn't names any more? Who the **** has Jon fought?

Rua has gaping holes? Your ****ing right. IMO the fight comes down to gaping. If Jon goes out there and hesitates, or worse throws an uncommitted strike like that half assed knee that backed up Bader, he may be neutralizing his biggest asset, and Mauricio's biggest flaws.
