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.
Lol that rua that lost to griffin and look like shit vs coleman is gone. He has look great in his last couple of fights knocking out liddell and machida. Let me repeat that name MACHIDA.

I don't know, but I hope he doesn't.

The Jones hype is sickening.

I don't mind the hype, jones is a special talent but i think too many people are counting rua out. This dude has the talent to fight wherever the fight end up. Striking or on the ground.

Shogun is going to beat the crap out of Jones.

Well, that's a big part of it. People saying he'll steamroll Shogun are going way overboard.

People say Jones is that once in a generation type fighter! SO IS SHOGUN!

IF Jones can't win with his wrestling to allow him to GnP, sub etc then I can't see him striking with Shogun.

I hate how fight fans care more about what other fight fans think of certain fighters more than the actual fighters themselves, or the fights themselves.

Sorry, that was a terrible sentence.

What I'm trying to say is that people care a lot more about saying "I told you so" than the actual fights. These are the same people that stop liking bands if they become too popular.

The question is can Rua stop Jones TD(prob not all of them) and can he defend Jones top game, nobody has so far.

The thing is, MMA is such a small world, everyone knows about everyone else. The UFC, and every other fighter, know how good Jones is , he is some kind of freak. That's why they offered him the title fight in the ring, that's why they talk about the 'Jones era' before he's even fought for a title. This is unusual shit. All these guys have either heard shit about Jones or have seen it first hand. John Jones is going to **** Rua up and **** everyone else up for a long time.

There are no unknown quntities in MMA as fighters train together in big camps. JJ is the shit. Rua is good too and COULD win, don't get me wrong. But JBJ is the favourite all things considered.
