Rashad Evans dissects Jones vs Rampage
 
EDIT - Not sure why he's showing up with a white box. I've embbed the code and everything.

Evans definitely knows what to do against Jones. It'll be interesting to see if he can though.

Quote my post and see how I did it.


Oh right. Guess I used too much code or something. Yeah he def. does. As long as Rashad remains disciplined he should be able to pull of the big win.

Rashad is making me believe in him. WAR RASHAD.

Evans was, essentially, saying Rampage was using the wrong strategy. Rampage needed to be in or out.

I don't know if Evans was saying that because that's his personal talent or if that's really the right strategy. What Rampage did was certainly wrong... so I guess we'll see if Evans' strength is what's needed to counter Jones.

Damn that was pretty accurate of him. "This is where Jones is gonna start getting tricky" ... Jones starts getting tricky. "Look for Jones to take Rampage down and finish him in this 4th round" ... Jones takes Rampage down and finishes him.

Seems like at the very least he knows Jones' game and analyzes it well. Whether analysis is enough to beat it though....

Insight is right there, bro. Thing is, it all makes sense what he is saying. Especially being a tall rangy guy myself, the worst thing that can happen to me standing is when a shorter Tysonesque guy is getting up in my face with short hooks and body blows instead of moving around and giving me time to find my range. That's the biggest mistake Rampage made and that's what cost him. Otherwise Rampage's takedown defence was excellent throughout.

That's what Rashad has to do in the stand up, imitate Tyson and then let his natural grappling gifts fall into place.

Really hoping Rashad pulls this off, Jones' ego has gotten a little to big.

AmdM 04-05-2012 07:14 PM

Pulling for Rashad, just because Jones is so good... :confused02:

War Rashad!! :thumbsup:

Good breakdown, but here's the caveat:

Great analysis, he knows Jon well. He actually has to capitalize on Jones' mistakes and implement his game plan to solidify the victory.

Let's hope :)
