  1. Jrock says:

    Now the jones hype train is goen a little too far!

  2. effyocouch says:

    Well that explains a lot.

  3. Ninjaman says:

    Sports Science, please. What happens when the scientist backs up Jones? They both get beat up by the emotionalist “Rampage” Jackson. Jackson is going to suprise the world when he knocks out Jones and then Sports Science is going to do another episode on Rampage’s crazy unstoppable knockout power!

    • Ian Mearns says:

      People don’t remember him knocking out Chuck Lidell when Lidell was at his top or that he beat machida when he had only lost one time. I hope that jones gets knocked out bad

  4. Chris says:

    Odds makers are making a big mistake on this fight, casinos will lode alot of money sat. There giving jones GSP odds, jones is no where near GSP, ridiculous

  5. Kalez says:

    Thanks Sports Science. With the slowmotion you can see the standing elbow strike to the back of Bonnar’s head easier.

    FAIL. 182 cubic feet in AREA. RITARDS

  7. Shawn says:

    lol! That’s all on paper. Long reach has it’s advantages, but also disadvantages as well. When that gap is closed, long reach loses a lot of it’s power. There are plenty of guys that can close the distance with Jones, Rampage being one of them. What Sports Science doesn’t take into consideration is that with any fight, ANYTHING can happen. Especially at that level. The non-tangible factors. What happens to a fighter’s confidence when his best shot, does very little to his opponent, who just keeps coming at him. Or a fighter breaks his hand or any other part of his body during a fight. Or he gets clipped and realizes “oh crap! that f’n hurt like a mofo!” as his eyes tries to stop shaking. There have been many times when on paper, a fighter should have won the fight, but didn’t.

  8. Good taste consists first upon fitness.
