I hope Cowboy kicks Benson's head clean off.

So Melendez vs Alvarez still possible

I lowkey think Eddie Alvarez washed though, came to the UFC 5 years too late

Also, based off his resume Jones is already the GOAT, and I don't really like him

He's faced far stiffer competition than Silva and GSP and excelled.

His list of former champs alone is ridiculous

i know its another sport but its even more insane to me now that floyd is making 50 million+ a fight.
algieri even made 1.27+ million in his bout with pacquiao, JBJ didn't even crack half that. eek.gif

I do agree that he probably has faced better competition then them but if u really dig into his opponents its not as clear cut as former champions. Alot of them haven't been nothing more than a one and done champion. they haven't been consistent enough to be considered elite but maybe he beat them so bad that they became shells of their former selves.

 

Shogun for example won the title then got destroyed by Jones, dude hasn't done anything since

Rampage just plain and simple sucks

Machida was a good test but he was at a size disadvantage, dropped to mw since

Belfort is a middleweight

Sonnen is a middleweight

Rashad was a good win, but we've seen Rashad be very inconsistent, losing lackluster fights

Gustaffson was a very tough fight, he very well was on his way to losing if not for the spinning backfist

Glover was a good win, but he just got 3-0'd by the same phil davis that got worked by Anthony Johnson

 

Jus saying its not that cut and dry. Alot of the guys he's beaten have either shown they aren't at the level we thought they were or aren't real Light hw's.

 

Now if he beats Gustaffson, especially decisively he'll make me a believer 

post #6217 of 41029

Cowboy is a fn maniac!!!!!!

 

I would love if it was a 5 rd fight tho, their first one in wec was a barnburner

I can confidently say that Cain is both faster and possesses superior stamina than Jones.

Guys workrate is demon like. He's not of this earth.

Did TWood start training at Duke Roufus recently? I thought he was part of American Top Team. At least that was the reason he gave for turning down a fight with Lombard.

Interesting, I wonder too. Pettis has Askren and Woodley as wrestling partners :x he'll need it against Khabib and RDA

 

Why do I have a feeling that RDA might try to strike with him though

post #6225 of 41029
That looks like Din Thomas on the far left who is an ATT lifer unless something has changed drastically.

Not unheard of for guys to do some training with guys from other camps though.

No wonder DC's takedowns were ineffective.

 

He was going up against that crack head strength.

 

Seriously though, Wow. :eek

 

Not a good look for JBJ or the UFC at all.

 

Hope Bones gets himself together.

post #6232 of 41029
so what happens with the belt? can he keep it while he gets cleaned up?

They should test the belt for residue. If I were champ, you best believe I'd hit a line off the strap.

Jon Jones :eek

What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?

"Everything's perfectly alright now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. . . How are you?"

If he failed the test Dec. 4th why was he even able to fight?

This dude is something else, tho.
I have a competition in me. I want no one else to succeed. I hate most people.

I hope he gets help .Its obvious the pressure of the belt has been getting to him and the fact he is hated by many fans and the UFC has issues with him has been eating away at him for quite sometime .This bout and the lead up to it had to have been real taxing on him .He definitely needs some time away from the sport and the culture around it.Chuck ,Tito and quite a few other dudes have done coke ,meth and other stuff but they were celebrated for being hardcore partyiers.
