mentally, I like where Rua is at for this fight. Jones is being rushed into the lion's den a little bit. This is a huge acid test for Jones.

Hopefully top form to see him bash Jones' face back to reality.

Multiple knee surgeries don't help with leg explosiveness, ability to sprawl and use power.

dont believe it. mentally, Jones believes in his own hype and feels his name deserves to be there as the champion and top p2p instead of Rua. He feels he is levels above everyone else and thrives on an opportunity to show it. Whether or not he will is still do be determined.

The crow taste good?
