Jones already a legend 

 

To cement GOAT status he needs to rematch and defeat Gus, after that there's not much else to prove at LHW (don't think beating Rumble would prove anything).. after that possibly dabble a bit in HW

DC seems like a real down to earth good guy.

Nah bruh i think Rumble is foreal.

We'll see how he fairs against Gus but the form he has shown so far would suggest he's a contender.

Condit :hat

 

"You know, Nick Diaz is back in the picture and I was thinking about maybe after he fights Anderson Silva getting that shot at him," Condit told Albuquerque's KRQE News. "Doing a rematch and kind of settling the score."

 

Condit defeated Diaz via unanimous decision (48-47, 49-46, 49-46) at UFC 143 to become the welterweight division's interim champion, but more than a few onlookers had it scored closer than that.

 

Ahead of the Woodley fight, Condit said UFC President Dana White informed him that Diaz had been offered the rematch, but turned it down.

 

"Nick, for whatever reason, I'm sure he's got his reasons, didn't take the fight," Condit said in March. "But in the future I would be interested in the fight. I think rematches are always intriguing, especially when they're close like that one."

 

Jones trolling :lol

 

"I wouldn't necessarily say there's anything I like about him," Jones said. "I do respect that he's able to use his frame so successfully, being a short guy and thicker guy. When you look at him, his body type doesn't scream athlete. But he's been able to do some amazing things, both in the sport of wrestling and his MMA career."

 

"I think he can be somewhat of an inspiration for people who are built like him," Jones said. "It proves you can do great things. It's just the manner of your mindset and how you use your body."

Jon Jones can't dunk? :x:|

 

"I saw something the other day where Jon Jones said, Daniel Cormier's body doesn't look like an athlete," Cormier said. "Well, I can grab the rim of a basketball [hoop]. Jon Jones is 6-foot-4 and he can't dunk a basketball. So who's the athlete?"

 

For his part, Jones is willing to concede that he can't dunk. But he also says the question of whether one is an athlete can't be reduced to such simple terms.

 

"It's true, I've never been able to dunk a basketball," Jones said. "I've got no calves. Well, I mean, if we're going to take dunking a basketball and sum that up as being a better athlete, I'll give it to him, then. Last I checked, we didn't play on a court."

 

Jones figures Cormier is simply trying to engage in a little mental warfare.

 

"Cormier needs to do anything he can to build himself up," Jones said. "Right now, his mental game is important. So he's going to say a lot, he's a great talker, he's a commentator for a reason. Saying he's the better athlete, all right, who cares."

post #5742 of 41107
Im 5'11" and can dunk easily... And Jones is a far superior athlete lol.

Saffedine is out with an injury in his fight with Matt Brown :{

 

Machida vs Rockhold :hat

 

On Wednesday, Rockhold said the match is all but a done deal. While there's no official announcement as of yet, Rockhold strongly hinted in an interview with MMAFighting.com that we should expect the bout to be finalized sooner rather than later.

 

"There's a very good opportunity for that to happen real soon," said Rockhold. "I look forward to that happening really soon here. Keep your eyes peeled, I'm sure something will come up soon."

I've seen so many interviews with DC this week it's unreal how much media there is leading up to this fight

 

This was a good one with Ariel, I thought it was interesting when DC started talking about other fighters besides Jones, at LHW. DC started reflecting back on Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans, and the whole teammate vs. teammate thing. DC claimed that Gus asked DC if he could train at AKA and DC told him no. He knew they would eventually fight. Imagining Gus training with DC and Cain :eek

 

DC said he's 11 pounds away from 205.. seems like his cut went pretty great and clean

 

Looks like all of AKA is in Vegas to support

Watching the DC and Jon interviews you can see that they have a lot of similarities .Both dealt with lost and failure and never being the best . Jon lucked up and got into MMA at a younger age and the rest is history .DC got introduced to it later and you can tell from the interview that he knows he is on the clock .He can't compete at a high level forever.

Honestly in a better world DC would have been a good mentor to Jon .Rashad and Jon had a good friendship that Dana took advantage of and used to promote a fight .I honestly think that is a huge regret Jon has .

Finally decided I'm rooting for DC. I like bones but the heart DC shows won me over

Rashad was just insecure about the whole situation. Dana gave Jones a title shot because Evans got injured. Nobody forced Evans to feel betrayed by that. What, you expected Jones to decline the fight? This is why you don't train with a guy in your weight class if you aren't willing to fight him. DC told Gus they couldn't train, and DC moved to a different weight class to not fight Cain. That's how you handle it. Blaming Dana is silly

Fight could go either way, no way i could ever put money on this fight.

 

I like DC and hope he has a belt at some point, but i can't root for him against Bones.

 

****** pumped for this fight, just hoping it doesn't end up a fight where DC lays on Jones the entire fight kind of like Sonnen vs Silva

 

and Cerrone on the card, one of my favorite fighters :hat

Very good article . Jon really reminds me a lot of Lebron .The constant brand building and contradicted himself .Dude is just human yet he knows he needs to build this brand to sustain himself for a lifetime
post #5754 of 41107
Bones is quite the business man.

I'm leaning towards DC, though.
post #5755 of 41107

Got a PS4 game on the line with a buddy. I'm rolling with DC.

post #5756 of 41107
I've been waiting for this fight for a long, long time.


I've long detested Jon Jones. His disingenuous humble routine he did earlier in his career I saw right through. **** this fake smug diva.


And to be honest the guy came into the division when the old guard was already on its way out. Prime Rampage & Shogun would've been different match-ups completely.


Guy has never faced a truly elite wrestler. Sonnen wanted no part and Bader isn't anywhere near the caliber Cormier is.


205 has been devoid of elite wrestlers and Cormier represents the unknown for Jones, long has Jones been able to beat fighters at their own games, he's not going to do it against Cormier, period.

So what then? What happens if you can't keep it standing Jones? If you can't stop the takedown? Are you REALLY that confident about your ability to fight off your back? Your clinch game isn't better than Cormier's either, his superior leverage will dictate the fight on the cage as well. What happens when you can't land your patented compact elbows?


These are questions I look forward to being answered on Saturday.


******* WAR CORMIER!!!

Sonnen vs Silva I?

What fight were you watching? Because I saw Sonnen land some impressive combinations standing up.

On the ground he kept busy and absolutely mauled Silva throughout that fight.


Definitely was not just laying and praying dude. Sonnen fought his heart out. One of the most impressive performances in MMA history albeit one of the most tainted.


Sonnen thoroughly dominated that fight and if not for getting reckless at the end he would've walked away with a unanimous decision victory.



If DC vs Jones is anything remotely reminiscent of Sonnen vs Silva I we'll be in for a treat. Easily one of the greatest fights and endings in the history of the sport.

Word, and Evans has long been stubborn about dropping to 185.



Though he'd probably dominate the division save for Weidman....Would be a toss up.

I think Jones has faced a number of very good wrestlers-- Evans, Bader and Sonnen, hell even Jake O'Brien. Am I taking much from those matches in his fight with DC? Not really

 

I will absolutely not discredit Jones' resume in any way. Rampage and Rua may have been on their way down but what about Evans, Machida, Vitor, Gus and Glover? I think Gus definitely pushed Jones to the absolute limit, but I scored Jones 3 rounds

 

Honestly, what stands out to me the most is the fact that DC trains every day with Cain. From all the stories over the years, it seems like DC has pretty much taken it to Cain.. I mean that's pretty impressive in my mind

 

Edit: Actually forgot DC fought Barnett 5 rounds. Damb. I guess you could say DC has never fought 5 rounds at his new weight..

 

I still don't have a feeling either way, don't think I will. Just hope for a great fight

let me guess.  You either:
A) Love Chael Sonnen

B) ******* hate Anderson Silva and threw a party when he lost his belt

C) Both
