Man I can't wait, If Shogun doesn't put some fear into Jones early in the first round he will lose. Mark my words because Jones' wrestling will allow him to takedown and ride Rua for easy points. Shogun's best advantage is standing up on paper but honestly nobody knows how good Jones' standup really is. He has never struggled yet and this fight will show us if the hype is warranted. If Jones beats Rua I don't see anybody defeating him and taking the belt for at least a year. Same for Shogun if he wins I don't see him losing to Rashad or whoever. They probably should have let this fight build a little longer. But I'm not complaining.:boxing:

Wow, yea. He looked really nervous. Shogun is just bad ass, calm as hell looking at you like he will actually kill you.

Can't wait!

I think with the Type of Caliber wrestling Jones brings i think shogun will have his work cut out keeping it standing... I think Jones but if Shogun is right then it could be interesting :boxing:

I'm kinda on the 50/50. I'll support Shogun 100% but I really don't wanna see him lose. When he lost to Forrest it killed me inside. Hopefully Shogun wins.

Actually I retract that statement. I hope he gets knocked out in his 2nd defence seeing as he will be fighting Rashad Evans.

I did. It was an incredible performance. Still don't like the kid merely on the fact that he destroyed my favorite fighter. Nothing wrong with me cheering with Rashad.

It's going to be a great fight between the two. They're both great wrestlers, but Evans might have the advantage at striking.

Evans the advantage in striking? LOL!! Did you not just see Jones rape Shogun with Muay Thai? Which is one of Shoguns specialties!

I love the body work of Jones. He understands this is a 5-round fight and he has to wear down Shogun first. Those elbows to the body in the 1st round was a thing of beauty, and ended with a left hook to the body!

Amazing, gotta love the kid!

I'm telling you right now rashad can't out strike Jones his gameplan will be to try to pull a GSP and constantly go for takedowns and GnP. Problem is Jones might be the better wrestler. We will see I can't wait for the legend of Jon Bones to grow even bigger.

We have no idea what kind of gameplan Rashad will do. Remember, Rashad knows Jones's faults. It's a very intriguing match up honestly.

I don't give anyone a chance against Jones except for Rashad and Silva.

Jones is better than Rashad at everything Rashad does. Rashad is pretty good at sticking to a gameplan though so we shall see. All my money is on Jones though.

Knowing how somebody trains is different from facing them for real in the cage. I knew Jones was going to win when I saw the look in his eyes tonight. He looked like a animal waiting to be let off the chain. He went in there and straight up dominated a fighter that would KO Rashad. Rashad will get destroyed all my points on Jones!

Great win for Jones but as expected considering Shogun was the underdog.

The flying knee of the bat at start of round was a thing of beauty and the soccer kick as shogun was getting up of the cage was what really changed the fight in rnd1! He'll go underfeated at lhw and as hes still growing he most likely will move up to Hw in next few yrs!

Man, there is nothing Rashad can do to beat Jones, Jon Jones is gonna steam roll right past him. It's gonna be a cool fight considering the background story, but I don't see it being competitive at all.

What did you say? Evans striking is overrated. Look how he fared against good strikers. Rampage, Machida, and worst Forrest griffin.

Griffin outscoresd him in stand up aspect until Evans managed to take him down and gave a killer punch.
