Default Jon Jones: I'm Alistair Overeem with better wrestling, better jiu-jitsu

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

UFC light-heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (19-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC) may believe he's faced opponents of similar stature to Jon Jones (12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC). He may think he had no problems getting inside their long limbs and chopping away with kicks and punches.

But he'd be wrong, according to Jones.

The challenger said he's a better version of two opponents Cyrille "The Snake" Diabate and Alistair Overeem to which Rua has compared him in the buildup to their meeting at UFC 128, which takes place Saturday at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Rua could claim otherwise until the dust clears from his first title defense. He iced the pair in question as a 23-year-old in the heyday of PRIDE. They both were longer than him and seasoned strikers in their own right, and it mattered little when matched against his intensity.

Now Jones is in Rua's place as a 23-year-old who's shot up the ranks with a freewheeling and aggressive style. The champ is now 29 years old, but he hasn't lost much of the intensity that made him a breakout star.





Interesting... Looks like Jones really DOES believe all the smoke blown up his ass. Overeem with better BJJ? REALLY?

Forget about his striking! Even his BJJ doesn't compare. Overeem was an ADCC Euro Trials champ. Overeem has excellent BJJ. But apparently Jones knows better?

People are reading too much into this and making their own conclusions. I never saw him say he's a better striker than Overeem. He was comparing himself to the Overeem that Shogun fought in Pride based on size and length only. He's saying that he's similar in stature to that guy, but has better wrestling and BJJ.

I'm sure the reporter asked, "You look like the Overeem that Shogun beat. What can you do to have a better outcome?"

And would you expect Jones to say, "Nothing. I'm way worse and will get killed," or try to say what he thinks he's better than Overeem at?

I like Shogun, but I think there is some serious nuthugging going on in the MMA world. And that nuthugging is making people see a villain in Jones that's not really there.

When you explain it that way, how am I supposed to hate this guy now?

Some people refuse to acknowledge the game has changed.


Jones treated Shogun like he has treated the rest of his victims. Like a child.



Keep hyping up the biggest sham of a "champion" in mma, Alistair Overeem.


Ignore the guys who are changing the game

He punched him with a liver shot and then kneed him in the face. Thats a great combo to knock anybody out.
