Not sure if he's sardonic or actually thinks it's true. Royce by 1st round submission via Gi choke.

Thanks for the laughs though...

I agree with what's already been said here. It's like comparing old football players to the players of today. Jim Thorpe probably wouldn't hold up well against today's athletes. Same goes for MMA which has evolved so much in the last few decades. My pick though: going with the upset. Jones DQed by illegal downward elbows.

MMA had already evolved enough in 2006 which saw him out of his depth. Hell...Sakuraba was to well rounded for him. (who was well ahead of his time btw, as far as being well rounded.)
