Rua fans aren't allowed to accuse people of making excuses.

ok ok he got 1% chance and 99% chance he gets his ass whoop. He ain't fighting no brandon vera and darth bader. He's in there with a beast who beat machida when many thought he was unbeatable.

"The oddsmakers are smart in this situation. They're really good with money. To make me the favorite is a smart strategy. They actually think I'm going to lose. When it comes to the hardcore MMA fans, they know that I have no right to be considered the favorite," Jones said.

To say jones has no chance is laughable... hes a 2-1 favorite!!

Are you betting on shogun? You could get + 160 on b-dog right now.. Shogun is a good fighter but he just had surgery and is he 100% right now? did he have a good camp?

Maybe I'm a victim of the Jones hype, but I think he's going to be way too much for Rua to handle.
I like Rua, and wouldn't mind seeing him win, but Jones is a beast.

Plus rua has been training for evans who has been using his wrestling more the last couple of fights.Rua is already prepared for this fight to go to the ground.
Just remember all the top notch wrestlers he has out wrestled.

Shogun in the 4th... either by leglock or TKO (punches, ref stoppage)

Rua splits Jones into two with his low kicks

Yeah, he's also in with the guy who looked like shit against Coleman and got choked out by Forrest.

I think if Shogun can get to Jones's legs with his kicks and stay on the outside he will have a chance. But if he tries clinching, he's going for a ride and not getting back to his feet. I think if this fight gets in close quarters, Jones is gonna ragdoll Rua, mount him and finish him. Maybe even in a round.
