Part of what makes MMA so great is that all it takes is one lucky punch to beat the "unbeatable". But there ARE dominate fighters, and I have a feeling Jones is one of them.

Actually, to me it looked like he was pacing himself to avoid that exact issue later in the fight.

I dunno who's going to beat him at that weight class, but I have a feeling it's going to have to be a really entertaining fight when he loses. Maybe Anderson Silva will move up and show Jones how it's done.


He was drained enough that, had he been forced to do something other than lay on top of Shogun, or dodge useless charges, he would have been in trouble. He did do a very good job of conserving energy,as he was still able to go into his short, crazy bursts of strength, but when they were on the mat toward the end of the fight, you could see he was tiring. The problem is that the only way to use that to your advantage is to constantly put pressure on him, which puts you at more risk than it does with other fighters.

He's not unbeatable, but I can't think of a guy who could win a decision against him. Rashad certainly isn't it. Unless the rest of that card is great, I probably won't even bother watching.

Thumbs up

I thought for sure they were throwing Jones to the wolves when Rashad had to back out. But he took this fight seriously and came through in a major way. I was REALLY impressed. I like his style, too: he is not overly cocky and just comes in and does what he needs to do......(And to think, this was his second fight of the day after tackling a Newark crackhead in the parking lot!) Shouts to mah boy from Roch-cha-cha, he definitely did his thing and I look forward to his future fights!

Fair enough. But he certainly wasn't in danger of pulling a Shane Carwin or anything either

Couture and Machida should be good - as well as Jose Aldo fighting in the UFC for the first time.

And GSP is GSP. Riddum.
