For all the talk from both fighters I expected more. Jones was brilliant but the fight was far less exciting than it could have been. I just feel vaguely dissatisfied with the fight. Not with the outcome. Just the fight in general.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Rashad, the eternal bad loser. "He did some stuff in practice better than he did tonight". So what? You got your ass kicked every day in practice?

Gust has a decent chance. I mean he has the height and striking advantage.

Evans didn't give him much of a choice. He was constantly backing away and Jones had to take the fight to him. Jones did a good job.

Tends to be the case with over hyped fights. Evans vs. Rampage comes to mind. Hard to predict what fights are going to be barn burners.

Just my 2 cents.
Anderson kicks him in the head like Rashad did Jones is going out.

It was disappointing for me... Jones deserve it entirely, he is impressive, I think Rashad was blocked mentally because of the pressure.
