  1. Dick Diaz says:

    hm… they’re both annoying!

  2. Donnybrook says:

    6 to 1 eh… sounds about right.

  3. true mma says:

    Both guys are cocky assholes. Rashad is a little less because the dragon made him do the stanky leg, and jones wont lose intil he tries the heavy weight division.

  4. Bloodhound says:

    Bones has got it if he takes it quick

    If it goes long Jones’ confidence will crack and break, Jones’ll shut down if the fight goes on and he can’t work his game.

    • Clara Bingham says:

      Yea we saw how his confidence was taken from him after that first round against Machida. But I think if he realizes he is losing a round to Rashad the effects will break him quickly and you know Rashad is ready for that.

  5. Thurgood Jenkins says:

    In terms of odds, I think Jones is obviously is the favorite. However, King Mo said it best. Ultimately, no one is invincible, so Evans, as much as I dislike him, could take this fight.

    I saw Douglas beat Tyson when I was six. As a little kid, I didn’t know much about the intricacies of boxing. Thus, Tyson was like a god in my eyes because I could never come close to beating Tyson as Little Mac, and I thought that invincibility was his real-life persona. It’s only when I really started watching MMA did I realize how unpredictable this sport is regardless of how lopsided a fight is on paper.

    I don’t really care who gets his hand raised in the end. I’m just looking forward to a great fight.

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      Punch Out was the best!

      I agree Mo did say it the best and that’s the reason that Anderson is currently unbeaten is because he is perceived as unbeatable. I feel like the only way you can beat the “unbeatable” is to lose a little respect for that individual but at the same time be cautious of their abilities.

      • Thurgood Jenkins says:

        Very well said. You’re exactly right that Silva is pretty much perceived as unbeatable. Although Sonnen lost, and that really is the only thing that matters in a fight and not “how close” someone came, I think he effectively proved that it is possible to beat the guy.

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          BTW! I still haven’t beaten Punch Out, that game is hard as balls if you can’t get the timing.

        • Thurgood Jenkins says:

          Me neither. I think I got to the second round against Tyson once. But before it was Tyson’s Punch Out it was just Punch Out. I’m pretty sure Super Macho Man or Mr. Dream or some shit like that was the last fight, and I did beat him.

    • Jojo says:

      I wonder how fast people will jump off the boner wagon once he loses

      • mmaislandjunkie says:

        i wonder how much more haters will keep doubting him after he smashes ANOTHER former champ. whos next forrest? lmao, he took out all the top guys in the ufcs most stacked division, u haters are retarded. what he did in one year was more impressive than any year anderson or anyone else has accomplished in mma history, FACT!

        • momo says:

          true but unfortunately jon jones will always give off an aura that just rubs people the wrong way the guy just needs to do something about that lol.

        • CoCiO says:

          205? Most stacked?..Seriously? lol..I like Jones style myself but I just don’t see what he has done as THAT impressive. He beat a rusty ass Shogun, a Rampage that just wants paid and he pretty much swung like hell till he managed to hit Machida, then bum rushed Machida and bear hugged his neck. The dude is just a big guy fighting in a lower weight class. Once he steps up to HW..then he will be impressive.

  6. true mma says:

    Jones has to long of a reach. Evans is going to have to lay and pray he doesnt get submitted and hope the judges like takedowns.

  7. jonesy says:

    i dont even think rashad is number 2 LHW i ufc..i just think jon jones beat the number 2 an 3 guys an now it rashad time,,.i think rashad is way overrated…jones hs this by submission round 2 or 3

  8. Mr.Rusk says:

    lost his confidence agaisnt lyoto? wtf fight were you watching? lol and it was mike tysons punch out before it was just punch out, he got convicted if rape and for some reason nintendo changed the name and the kast boss.

  9. Pijan says:

    I still think Jones is a little overrated. He’s a great fighter, top LHW no doubt, but he’s still got to win a few more fights for me to think he’s ‘unbeatable’, though beating Rashad will be a step in the right direction. The reach problem could be hard to overcome but I don’t see Rashad trying to stand with him either. I will say only way Evans will win is in boring fashion, but it is still a possibility, so is a KO. Rashad has the know how and the skill set to get it done, I see him winning this one. Whether or not he can hold the belt is a different story.

  10. Rand says:

    Whos gives a shit what that FAT FUCK from MMAJunkie thinks. Hes a fat fucking tard who wishes that he wasnt such a fat piece of garbage. Go eat some more boxes of twinkies you fat fuck!
