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.
