True but if you are going to lock threads and give warnings you should follow through and double check and make sure the warning is being respected and honored by the parties involved. The last thread to be locked on this forum was on the 17th and I think the behavior picked up again on the 19th.

Well, regardless, nobody goes after anybody else. If a conversation gets heated then that's fine so long as it's civil, but nobody is allowed to purposely bait and go after a member.

If you have anymore questions about it, feel free to PM me.

I used to LOVE Jon Jones.
Then when he got his title shot I HATED him.
Now I kind of like him again.

Evans proved he was a better fighter than I thought he was, but I'm glad he lost, doesn't seem like a man of high integrity and his showboating was really annoying. Hopefully getting beat like that will teach him some humility.

I used to like Jones...then he won the title

Great showing by Jones (Though not the most exciting)... In 368 days he has fought and beaten; Shogun, Rampage, Machida and now Rashad... That's a pretty damn impressive 12 month period

As for Jones vs. Hendo I am not at all excited by that fight :/ While I don't mind Hendo I'm not a huge fan of his and I don't care that much for Jones either... Will be a big headliner - It just won't feel that special for me

Interesting discussion.

I agree with Rogan: Jones really is a virtuoso in there. Part of it lies in his reach, but he also displays an enormous creativity rivaled only by Anderson Silva. Those standing shoulder strikes were crazy: the clinch is almost always a neutral position and yet Jones found a way to turn it to his advantage.

Give Rashad credit: dude has crazy confidence, regardless of the odds. Remember, this guy fought as a 5'11" heavyweight just so he could hopefully earn a spot in the UFC by getting through TUF.

It is a tricky situation right now for the UFC; Jones has beaten most every top contender, and Henderson is not perceived to be a major threat to Jones.

I don't think Jones is interested in Anderson or Chael either; Jones seems more interested in moving up a weight class, not down. Jones' next move will be interesting for sure.

I said it before and now I got the result to back me up. Jones is the man! Wonder why Rashad didn't go for takedowns.

Jones controlled this fight and landed some good shots but come on, time for Heavyweight. The size difference last night was ridiculous. Jones breaks opponents mentally but it is nothing like the Tyson effect as Joe Rogan insinuated, Tyson was nearly always undersized and won with brutal technique.

Rashad was totally confident last night but it did not take much to make him a dear in the headlights. This guy has been rocked and come back from it before, yet last night he was never actually close to being knocked out, and he turned completely defensive.

Strike with Jones, he can hit you when you cant hit him. If you attempt to counter or rush him, he sticks his fingers in your face and runs backwards. If you clinch with him, his upper body is so much bigger and stronger than every other LHW. On the ground he is a beast, Jones is one of the most impressive MMA fighters on the grond for me and he would have to utilize it more at HW.

Jones crushes opponents with size and strength. Even at a medium pace like last night, you're going to use a lot of energy just trying to overcome his physicality. He's got the biggest wingspan in UFC and walks around at a similar weight to the HW champ who does not cut, ffs Dana let the kid move up.

The first fight I'd like to see JBJ in HW is actually against Pat Barry, Struve, then Cain.

Pat Barry cuz he's going to leg kick him to death and has dynamite in his hands. But once it hits the ground it's game over...haha.

Struve...well that's an easy one. For once JBJ will be fighting someone taller than him with good reach.

Cain because he should take out JBJ with his relentless pace and wrestling. Cain also has wicked leg kicks.

All they gotta do is snap those legs to kill his mobility. You can't stay away from JBJ cuz he closes the gap too quickly and it's hella difficult to find your range against him when your attacking as he sticks his hands out playing keep away. So that leaves leg/mid section kicks. Cain won't be afraid to land em at will cuz he's not scared of the ground game.

Although I voted for Rashad I think I've gained a bit more respect for JBJ now. Still a self righteous and pompous fighter, albeit a physically talented one.
