  2. breakbones says:

  3. THE INUK says:

    machida better win, I cant stand this jones talk as best p4p much longer!!

  4. Joe says:

    lol you’ll need more than king mo for help with jones muahaha

  5. Ninjaman says:

    Again with all this Jones hate. I want Machida to win but Jones is awesome and has done nothing to bring about such negative comments.

    • Joe says:

      what are you talkin about he’s a greg jackson fighter, and ” all his fights are boring” LOL
      hahhhhahaha seriously why so much hate? Jon brings it and entertains the fans, when he could just rely on his wrestling to win.

      • Jon jones is gay says:

        Jon is a good fighter but the way he acts and dresses makes my gaydar go off. I think Jon is prolly banging Greg Jacksons asshole

        • GRT 3000 says:

          nope….it’s you that’s gay buddy. you make your own gaydar go off – if your thinking abt GJ a**hole and JBJ anywhere near it??!! YOUR GAY!

    I disagree with the statement that King Mo is the best wrestler in MMA. I believe both Jones AND Rashad would put him on his back and control him in MMA. Pure wrestling and MMA wrestling are 2 different things.

    • Joe says:

      WORD… everyone always say div 1 wrestler bla bla blaaa, they just always forget that Jon never pursued a future in college wrestling and went right into mma. went to high school with him, and that move he pulled on bader where he whipped his leg around him, that was his high school trick

      • DanHendersonsFrontTeeth says:

        actually he did pursue wrestling, he went to a juco in Iowa he was recruited by Iowa State. He has excellent greco, point blank a lot of people respect jones stand up, thats why most people are scared to test it. They get caught up in the film sessions, YES he is an amazing athlete, but if you take the pace to him, how will he respond? That’s why i like Machida in this fight, but then again i thought Rua would push the pace against him. If Jones destroys Machida i will have to stop doubting him.

  7. KingGareth says:

    Machida is going to test Jon’s cardio. If Machida can be quicker than Jones, it’s over.

    • josh says:

      really Machida is going to test JOnes cardio? i think his cardio has been tested already.

    • io31 says:

      Being quicker than Jones is not easy, not only you need to move quicker , you need to cover a greater distance than he needs to cover, which means you have to move MUCH faster than Jones. Machida and Anderson Silva approach their fight quite analytically though (maybe not as much as Jackson’s fighters but they are not afraid to make the fight boring rather than playing to the hand of their opponents) so I think he’ll be able to somehow get inside and give Jones trouble.

      This is the best possible match-up in LHW right now, I can’t think of any other championship fights that I’d want to so other than this and Jones-Evans. I don”t think that Hendo-Jones would be as good (Jones wins that relatively easily me thinks).

  8. Deez nutz says:

    Machidas kicks will close the gap in the stand up. I think most of this fight will be in a clinch or against the cage. I think machida has better jits so I’m going for machida submission in the champ rounds.

  9. pk9grrr says:

    i dont think machida should fight jon jones headon but moreso to handle jones’s wrestling game if it comes to that point,machidas game should be picking jones apart and being at a quick pace for the whole 5 rounds

  10. Mike Diaz says:

    Cmon Dragon, I got you on this. You are the last glimmer of hope to shut that little boy down! TEAM PENN!!!!!!

  11. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    This is the best shape I have seen Machida, maybe he’ll win.

  12. Lookin jacked doesn’t mean he’ll be beat jones.. Skill and and execution of gameplan is going to win the fight. Jones’s reach and the way he mixes up his style is going to cause issues for machida. I want to see Jones dethroned, but don’t think machida can pull it off. I think Hendo can pull it off!

      • The King says:

        Even if hes a fuckin cheat.
        IF YOU GOTTA TRT GTFO!! If you gotta replace your Testosterone. Then uh you probly took something to deplete it. Get it Dummy?

        Shaking my head at Chart and the millions of other dip shits that love cheaters.

      • mmaislandjunkie says:

        exactly king trt therapy is just bullshitt. its legal steroids imo. as far as lyoto having muscle, i think thats a good thing. he looks very motivated for this fight and ppl tend to forget, but if he and rampage had one more round i think machida would have finished him too. i think machida might just surprise everyone and dethrone the young champ before the year is out.

      • GRT 3000 says:

        That would be something @islandJ, but I don’t think it will happen. I’m not a big JBJ fan, but the way he’s been running through top guys can’t be denied; it’s hard to imagine that Machida has what it takes. I guess we’ll see what his training has produced on fight night…

    • pk9grrr says:

      i think its the case of who ever applies there affective gameplan through the whole fight winns ,both are a puzzle,machida need to treat this more like a point scoring match ,jones is dangerous all round but if put off his game and sent into the later rounds he could loose

  13. Zack says:

    I say give Hendo a shot. There’s no one else if jones beats machida. They should make it a 3 rounder, cuz if it isn’t over by then dans getting pounded.
