Honest question...

I'm not a particularly avid MMA fan, but I've been on the Jones wagon for a while and I'm glad he's actually doing it

Basically I just want to know if there's anyone in his weigh class that I should be nervous about as a fan of his.

And I'm not asking for guys that can get lucky and land a lucky shot, I'm talking about guys that r actually able to get in his grill and can actually skillfully work their way in and get a KO, or beat him by decision, or wutever...

Let me know guys...

Thanks

I think the majority of people would agree that Evans and Machida have the best chances, and that Phil Davis is a possibility down the line.

Evans is very well rounded, has explosive and powerful strikes, great wrestling and good sub grappling.

Machida is very very strange stylistically, not giving up a huge size difference, very fast and sneaky, with really, really good takedown defence.

Jones is the favourite over both, though.

i really like jones, but i think it'd be naive for me to suggest that he doesnt have some growing/maturing/learning yet to do

hes top tier already but if he keeps working as hard as he does and stays as hungry as he does he CAN be ATG

this is a crucial point in his career to see how he handles it, so far im loving what i see though

The only way we'll see Jones get decisively beat is if he moves up to the HW division. The boy is good.

heavyweights. with his build i think he will gas out and get stopped via strikes when he's a HW.
he's as talented as anybody in any fight sport right now.
that is THE build for fighting. bones before muscles. rigidity and leverage of your bones is what does the damage in your strikes, not muscles.

he's too big at 205. until he outgrows the weight limit (he's got to be cutting weight to get to 205. i'd love to see a fight night weight. i'm guessing he's about 225 at least on fight night)


evans and machida?


what are they going to do with that?

Most people still don't see that he only has 1 legit win over a top ten fighter in the LHW division. Machida and Evans both will be interesting matches for him. I'd like to see a Shogun Rematch now that he's healthy too....

Anyone can. It is called one punch knockout.

I do not see it happening anytime soon though.

LOL

did jones steal your bike or something?


evans and machida?


what the hell are they going to do with that?
especially machida. he's essentially a pure striker with a snails pace. he's got slower feet and hands. he fights from the outside. his only chance will put him exactly where jones wants to fight, with the additional option of taking machida down or pushing him to the fence.


a shogun rematch?
dude got WHITEWASHED. he got his ass kicked.
i doubt he would even take the fight.


a few more fights like that and he'll have to retire.

you cannot take much more of a beating
or be less effective

Interested in seeing him rematch a uninjured Shogun. Apart from him and Rashad, I dont see anyone in the LHW division beating him unless Silva moves up.

evans and machida could beat him if they were allowed to bring a gun and shoot jones in the head as soon as the door closed in the octagon. nobody at 205 has anymore than a lucky puncher's chance. i'd like to see him fight a more experienced phil davis, i think that would be interesting

I think your claim that Shogun wasn't healthy is bs especially when Shogun weeks before the fight said that he was in the best shape of his life. So, let me guess, you know more about Shogun's body than he does? Wait.... that's kind of sick when you think about it...
