You're so smart. You predicted this so long before it actually happened. You must be MMA guru. That's awesome dude.

I was impress with jones fight against hamill and bader but i didn't expect him to beat shogun the way he did. His takedown is pretty sick. I can't wait to see him fight again. It's gonna be interesting fighting evans next.

Shogun is one of the fighters who gets chubby inbetween fights. I don't think he trains much and he gets injured. My problem is I'm not sure if he trains hard enough to get back to the best shape he can be in. A world class athlete who loves jits should not be huffing and puffing after 3 or 4 minutes when the fight could go 25 minutes!

I did mention in the training video put up that I wasn't impressed with his cardio from what little I could see.

whether someone is prone to getting chubby can have a lot to do with genetics. With that said, he looked soft and not as tight as in the machida rematch. I think he doesn't have the best genetics but he doesn't seem like a guy who trains really intense on his cardio. he looked really sluggish and slow, reminded me of the Griffin fight, but part had to do with Jones taking it out of him.

I'm not talking about how cut he is. I'm saying he gets much fuller in between fights. If he was training all year round trying to improve that wouldn't happen. If you aren't training then your cardio will decrease. Couple that with injuries where he probably stops training all together and his cardio seems to be ****ing awful.

Shogun lost but he gassed after 3 or 4 minutes. It just wasn't good enough and he disrespected Jones by not coming in good enough shape. Perhaps he was disrespecting Rashad and did train hard but 6 weeks isn't enough.

Shogun gassed is a shit fighter, the same guy who lost to Forrest and went life and death with Coleman. Of course he won't win. I wanted to see Shogun in shape.

Seagal and Silva have their work cut out no doubt. Silva may need to call Chuck Norris as well.

Since Jones beat Hammill (fight speaking he did), I've been saying Jones was the next big thing. And at 23, he may be the next to have his name written up there with the greats.

No, it's not over, just like Cro Cops wasn't over after the Gonzaga fight.

Except Dana wants him to retire and has already indicated this publicly...
