    JBJ is gonna knock Rashad out!!!

    • phace says:

      I don’t see JBJ getting a knockout but if there is a finish by him it would either be TKO or submission. Otherwise Rashad beats him through ground and pound or decision(decision is possible for both fighters). If Jones ends up on his back there may be an upset IN MY OPINION.

      • jc says:

        jones to tap from strikes in a munted crucifix

      • huh?? says:

        “I don’t see JBJ getting a knockout but if there is a finish by him it would either be TKO or submission.”

        Ok.. so so how else can you finish someone other than a TKO or a submission.

        “decision is possible for both fighters”

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      Noone runs away betetr than rashad and steals victories but as much as i can’t stand Jones he will RUIN Rashads career in this fight. i predict this will be Rashads last fight. The beating will be so horrific that he won’t want to show his face again. The beating will be similair to GSP vs Fitch as far as how bad Rashads face looks after. Please look up the pictures of Fitch’s face over a month after fight. one of the worst beatings in UFC history EASILY

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        Rashad vs Machida 2 if he loses to Jones. I bet you that Rashad won’t lose twice to Machida.

        • GET RID OF FITCH says:

          All you have to do is re-watch the first Rashad vs Tito fight and you will see Rashad CLEARLY lost taht fight. records don’t mean crap with horrible judging in MMA and all the cheap ass wins fighters like Fitch and Rashad have stolen. Thiago Silva was about 10 seconds from KO ing Rashad when he was saved by bell after Rashad did nothing the ebore fight exept run away and “FITCHING” Even Bispings fight with Rashad was razor close. all rashad did during that entire fight was cheap takedown and bsiping would jump right back up. noone other than Fitch has more CHEAP wins in UFC than Rashad. Why hasn’t Rashad had to fight machida again?

        • JAC says:

          Tito grabbed the fence thats why his first fight with Tito ended in a draw. Rashad is a much better fighter now anyway. He dominated Phil Davis and it was Davis that started trying to take Rashad down in the 1st round and then he ended up in the crucifix late in round 1. Rashad made Davis look like an amatuer on the ground and no one has done that to Davis before.

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          Fighters grab fence all the time and just get warned. Tito won the first 2 rounds vs Rashad hands down and Rashad shoudl have lost that fight. it doesn’t matter if rashad is better now my point was he lost that fight and he even admitted as much

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          I don’t care w hat anyone says Shogun and Machida both would beat rashad but somehoiw he ahs been able to dodge both of them for last 3-4 years when everyone else has had to fight each other. anyway we saw how jones dispatched of both those great fighters but YES they didn’t run away like rashad will so it will look like rashad is doing better because he will dance around and avoid engaging prob for at least 2-3 or more rounds same thing he did to rampage and when he was scared to death of Thiago Silva. First 3 rounds or more will be boring as hell unless Jones just chases Rashad down and makes him fight but that won’t happen because we have all seen Greg Jackson gameplans lately. EVERYTIME out Greg jackson gameplans become more and more conservative. At some point Greg Jackson will have his fighters training 90% track and field so they can run away anbd steal bullshit decsions without ever engaging their opponents.

      • jc says:

        rashad has the best record out of anyone in the ufc why would he retire after 2 losses

        • Anthony1994 says:

          Jc He doesn’t have the best he has a great record but Renan Barao has the best record and if you mean in only the UFC then that just means A.Silva has the best record

      • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

        can you imagine if Greg jackson was a wrestling coach in college? everyone on his team would lose VIA stalling

  2. ThaGreenBandit says:

    I got Bones winning this fight, but wouldn’t be at all surprised if Rashad found a way to win. I think Rashad’s experience with Bones will be a factor, but just don’t think it will be enough for him to get the win

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      I don’t think Rashad can hold onto the belt if he takes it. If he wins Shogun or Hendo will end up having the belt at some point.

      • ThaGreenBandit says:

        I don’t know… I see where you’re coming from, but then again… Rashad is one of those guys, talented as hell, but there’s just something about him that I can’t really buy into. If he were to win the belt, I could see him losing it after a short while, but then again, he has the tools to hold onto it for a long while. What the hell am I saying? I dont’ know, but you get what I’m saying, right?

  3. Donnybrook says:

    Easiest poll I’ve ever taken.

  4. CD says:

    jones hasnt destroyed anyone since shogun

    • yeah yeah says:

      rashad hasnt destoryed someone since…. well there was….. uh…. well…… oh wait! just kidding

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      Since Shogun, he’s fought Rampage, who he tapped in the 4th with a RNC, and Machida, who he lullabied to sleep in the 2nd with a nasty ass guillotine. Call it what you want, but he destroyed them both. Just sayin’…

  5. m0nkey says:

    too fast, too strong, too skilled. JBJ should be fighting a devision higher no question. There is no one in this one that can test him as proven.

  6. nick soule says:

    Jones if he can use his kicks and time his takedowns, it will be a repeat of the rampage fight imo, Evans needs to bring it early and try ot end it in round 1, the longer it goes the btter it is for jones who is way younger…

  7. The natural says:

    Rashad can do it if anyone can!!!

  8. true mma says:

    I don’t like Jones but to think Rashad ” stanky leg” Evans is going to beat Jones is just stupid. Even rashad knows he’s going to lose.

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      TRUE MMA you hit the nail on head, nothing more to say. Rashad will run away like he always does when he is scared but Jones wil take him with EASE. how this poll doesn’t read 99% for Jones i will never know. I agree i can’t stand Jones as much as next guy but rashad doesn’t stand a chance.

  9. yeah yeah says:

    is this a serious poll? what noteworthy win does rashad have in the last four years?

  10. Chartmonster says:

    Rashad knows how to fight bones..upset on the horizon!

  11. Judge_Dreadz says:

    u guys r fucking stupid Jones is not gonna run through Rashad anything can happen in MMA u all kno that Rashad has the best chance to beat SuperBones

  12. GreenTeaBagger says:

    I have Jones by dump and hump in the third.

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      …and you draw this conclusion from? I’m just wondering, because Bones has yet to “dump and hump” anyone in the UFC, so what makes you think he’s gonna start now? Being a hater can really expose your ingorance if you aren’t careful

  13. The only area where I give Rashad a slight edge is with the wrestling. All other areas of the fight Jones has his number without a doubt.

    So with that being said.

    Bones by KO knee to the head when Rashad gets angry that he can’t hit him and goes in for the TD in the 1st or 2nd round.

  14. banks says:

    I think rashads quickness and strength mixed with his awkwardness will hurt jones. but i dont really care who wins shogun is my boy.. i jus wana see more than wrestling for five rounds

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      I still can’t believe how soft Rashad looked around the midsection or allover for that matter against Davis. look like jelly donut boy

    • jacob says:

      Yes man! Shoguns the fucking man. Id love to see him pick apart rampages one dimensional game. As far as jones and evans goes, you would have to be delusional to think rashad doesnt stand a chance, hes got quick enough hands to catch jon with a powerful shot and good enough wrestling to get some takedowns and maybe deliver a little ground and pound

  15. Delano says:

    I dont consider Rashad beating Jon Jones being an upset at all… how is that an upset? seriously… It’s like people don’t know who Rashad Evans is or what he’s done… so that 1 knock out loss on his record makes him an underdog? ya’ll need to get off Jones Dick.. !!! Rashad will take that belt, mark my words…

  16. Bla DeBla says:

    I think Evans has a Psychological edge on Jones like he had against Davis , seems to be able to push their buttons & get under their skin .

    If he can do it on fight night there could be the makings of an upset but is past recent performances are anything to judge by I’d say that Jones has to be the BETTING favorite.

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      If Rampage, the ultimate clowner, can’t get under JBJ’s skin in a way that it will mess with his performance, I don’t think Rashad is gonna do any better in that dept. If Rashad wins, it won’t be because he mind fucked Jones

  17. br says:

    the only thing this poll proves is that so far 44.6% of people that voted are fukin retarded. You are kidding yourself if u think rashad can win. Jones will pick him apart with his reach. Rashad will gas after 2 rounds if he lasts that long n Jones will pounce. This guy is something special and won’t be beaten by the likes of rashad Evans lol not even a genuine contender imo.

    • JAC says:

      How do you figure Rashad will gas after 2 rounds when he just went 5 rounds with Davis? Davis doesn’t have the reach of Jones but he threw a ton of kicks at Rashad and never had him in trouble and Rashad displayed some good boxing and great wrestling. He made Davis look like an amatuer and everyone compares Rashad to Rampage but Rashad is a much better wrestler than Rampage thats how come he beat him in the 1st place. The only think I would say that is comparable between Rashad and Rampage is power. Lets not forget how Jones ducked Rashad the first time they were supposed to fight because he needed surgery on his hand… oh wait thats right Jones never did get that surgery.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Jones has over 10 inch reach and 6 inches in height on Rashad. this fight won’t even be close

  18. Jb says:

    Heres the deal with this fight. Who ever looses or by how isn’t as revalent as the looser will be plunked after this loss. So much ba hype around it that no one wants to be the guy who lost. The looser will catch shit over this loss for years

  19. Donovan says:

    Once again The NEW UFC Light Heavy-Weight champion of the world…”Suga” Rashad Evans. VIA attitude adjustment. Jon is a sucker for fame. I’ve never seen it happen that fast. Its going to be a BAD time for him when he gets put on his ass. His whole world will come crashing down, but he deserves it. All he REALLY has is his god given reach, that’s all. Any Jones nut huggers are welcome to comment cuz it will just reinforce my claim that they hug his fuckin nuts

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      “All he REALLY has is his god given reach…” C’mon, dude. Are you really that stupid. If he just had reach in his favor, than every one of those former champs that he beat absolutely suck, if they can’t get past a fighter who has no skills whatsoever, just a long reach at his disposal. Machida, Rampage, and Rua were beat by reach alone?! PLEASE! Stop being a hater, and admit that the guy is both skilled, and physically gifted.

  20. Dan Donofrio says:

    Rashad will find a way. Yeah, Jones will beat Evans so badly he’ll retire. NOT!
    Fool…Anyhow, good luck to both fighters, and like someone said earlier, this could be an upset…Peace out to all, and to all a good fight!

  21. Magoo says:

    @donavan,Jon Jones is a sucker for fame? You’ve never seen it happen that fast? Dude after Bones had ragdolled,elbowed,and kneed the shit outta “suga” plus stuffed all his takedown attempts, makes him say uncle….. then and only then will you realize that Jon “bones” Jones is the best 205er that ever stepped into the cage!

  22. Canilive says:

    Rashad has a mental edge? Yea look what happened to Vera when he started talkin shit. Rashad hasn’t impressed in a while. Lil nog dispatched Tito quicker than rashad could

    • JAC says:

      Lil nog got to fight Ortiz after Rashad had beat him. Rashad beat Ortiz with a knee to the body and nog with body shots. Only a retard wouldn’t see the correlation here and since you probably are retarded I’ll to you what it means. After his fight with Rashad Tito isn’t able to take a body shot anymore.

  23. true mma says:

    Rashad knocked out an old ice man and that he was mike tyson until the dragon put his ass to sleep. Jones will submitt rashad off his back because of his reach. A person with a long reach is better equipped to pull off a submission.

  24. Gouldx87 says:

    the advertising for this fight reminds me of Chuck vs Tito ..The biggest grudge match ever blah blah blah

  25. Bennyboy says:

    lets just see Jones stop Rashad’s takedowns.

  26. THOM BJJ says:

    dont see how rashad is gonna win, no way hes taking jones down.

  27. true mma says:

    I’m tired of fighters winning because of takedowns. It’s called the ultimate FIGHTING championship. Fighting not wrestling. If you take someone down ground and pound them not let them up take the down again. And wait for a decision. Hurt the other guy. It’s fighting…..

  28. BJ PENN FAN says:

    i hope pedro getting lickens.

  29. jason says:

    Rashads gonna put his hands on him take him down and pound him out….Tko late rounds or UD for shad…and i will be there live to see it =D
