    We know Jones,U took Vitor down like 10 sec in the fight like a bitch.Avoided engaging until u were on top of him trying to tire him out with elbows.Chicken shit way to fight,him and that fag Greg Jackson’s game planning.On guys that are 2/3 his size.What a chump

    • Josh C says:

      ^says the guy not in the UFC or probably doesn’t fight MMA at all. Its called fighting smart. Why would you give your opponent the advantage or opportunity to use their best weapon? All you turkeys that say stupid shit like “oh hes a bitch or *****” are the real bitches.

    • magoo says:

      Pull up ur panties ur and dry ur eyes….who in the hell would wanna stand and trade with vitor you idiot!! Do you think Anderson’s gonna go for the double leg on Weidman, maybe have a little grappling match? (Smh) some people sheesh!

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      You, my jackass of a friend, sound like a complete dumb fuk

    • Thom1 says:

      I seriously hope you’re not this stupid

  2. JustBleed says:

    Yeah bro what a *****. Everybody should just stand and bang – game plans are for faggots. Just straight up throw leather.

    Just incase youre confused, I’m being sarcastic and am insinuating you’re a retard. If you want to see just up striking watch boxing/muay thai. I hate Jon Jones for different reasons than you, but taking down a guy whose entire game plan is to strike is a good idea. At least little JJ doesn’t fight like GSP.

  3. Dddddddd says:

    Johnny’s a beast anywhere! I don’t care what he says. He’s gotta be one of the most successful fighters by round that’s ever fought. If you hate him for being oversized you should take a good look at Anderson. He’s huge

    • kkk says:

      you’re a moron. in relation to their respective weight classes, jones is way bigger than anderson. btw, anderson moved up twice and owned. jones never went up yet.

      • Dddddddd says:

        Anderson weighs 230pnds
        Johnny weighs 225
        You are so smart your stupid! Congratulations!
        Stephan Bonnar has an 80″ wingspan
        Johnny’s gifted with 85″
        Stephan Bonnar, Jake O’Brien, Matt Hamill, Ryan Bader, Shogun Rua and Rampage Jackson were all heavier
        Everyone else hes faced weighs almost the same.
        Oh ya I noticed you still don’t have the balls to post with your common name? But I wouldn’t either if I had no idea what I was saying.

        • Thom1 says:

          Its not about weight, it’s about size and leverage. Also there’s litteraly no way Anderson weighs more than Jones.

  4. KIDD433 says:

    Shit like that,like the fags above here mentioned is why The UFC has been cutting guys left and right.All this game planning shit,and point fighting.You don’t need to fight rockem sockem style to be entertaining either,but it is a fight nonetheless.Thats what sells,that’s what I spend my $ on.signed,the customer.

    • JustBleed says:

      Ohhhh you’re just trolling, you got me good buddy. “Rockem sockem style” gave it away, touché

    • TK says:

      He did stand up and strike with Vitor and dominated him there and even dropped him. Also, his gameplan lead to finishing Vitor.

      • KIDD433 says:

        He only stood with Vitor after he noticed he was injured.And after he tired the shit out of him from being on top of him.Not because he came at him K1 style or something.Vitor had a broken hand by the way.

        • Thom1 says:

          So according to you, the only way you should fight in MMA is to completely avoid the ground, dont use your reach or footwork, and just plant your feet and swing for the fences. If you dont do this you’re a b*tch and a p*ssy. Get over yourself dude. Go watch BJ’s fights with Pulver and Stevenson, BJ instantly took both of those guys down and tapped them in the 2nd with minimal striking. What a b*tch right? Lol shut up dude.

  5. KIDD433 says:

    It’s called Ultimate Fighting Championship,Not Ultimate “Gameplan”Championship

  6. West says:

    KIDD433 While I agree with you a bit, with game planning such as lay and pray or what Guida did during the Maynard fight, Jones has only gone 5 rounds once, so I think whatever he’s gameplanning seems to be working

  7. Bunch of fags says:

    @Ddddddd. Your comment was by far the gayest thing I’ve ever seen on here. “Johnny” “a beast” and then anderson is huge. Bro you’re as gay as it gets. And I’m sorry but 84″ reach in arms it’s a big advantage. Plus longer legs …you’re a bit retarded. May wanna check on that with your doc at your most convenient time.

    • magoo says:

      What’s the matter with you? JBJ is a total beast, and Anderson “the clown” Silva is a huge MW!!! Go sell your retarded gayness somewhere else….. Dummy!

      • GRT 3000 says:

        …& Weidman isn’t a huge MW? smh I just watched some old footage on Weidman…man, this guy is so fucked. all I’m hearing is stylistically he’s a bad matchup, blah blah. listen to almost every fight hype reel for Anderson fights – they were all suppose to be the worst stylistically for him – & they all got trashed. I think your envy of the GOAT is the your only motivation for backing Weidman bud. this kid is going to get beat up.

  8. Dddddddd says:

    Anderson weighs 230pnds
    Johnny weighs 225
    You are so smart your stupid! Congratulations!
    Stephan Bonnar has an 80″ wingspan
    Johnny’s gifted with 85″

    Oh ya I noticed you still don’t have the balls to post with your common name? But I wouldn’t either if I had no idea what I was talking about.

  9. KIDD433 says:

    @Dddddddddd…Your mistaken pal,Jones walks around 235-240.He walks in the octagon fight day after rehydrating and carbing up around 225.

  10. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    Silva weighs 230 and Jones 225? gtfoh!

  11. Dan Jenkins says:

    If I were Jon Jones and had his reach my gameplan wouldn’t be to plant my feet and trade either. The mans arms are longer than my legs or not far off it. The most effective way would be picking apart my opponents from the outside especially when although his striking is good it’s not deadly yet, Or use his wrestling to take it to the mat to pound or submit them. I don’t see a problem with his style of fighting he gets finishes. I don’t like those stab kicks to the knees tho
