I wasn't impressed by Rashad performance. I understand Jones is a very tough guy to fight with his reach and dynamic/unique striking but when you're clearly behind in a fight there comes a point where you gotta take risks to give you're self a chance and I didn't see Rashad doing that. After he took those big elbow strikes in the second round he didn't do much at all. Almost everytime he only threw one punch barely ever trying combinations. You're not going to beat Jones by just trying to hit him with a big right from the outside well at least its very unlikely you need to get him into exchanges if you hope to catch him. Yes this might put you in danger as well but if you want to win getting Jones into exchanges and taking the fight to him is you're best chance. When Jones can stay on the outside and not have to worry about constant pressure hes in his world and can do whatever he wants with you.

Though still I'll be looking for Henderson to pull a George Forman like one punch right hand knockout to become champ at the age of 40.

i really thought rashad was going to keep his hands busy so he could set up a TD. I really can't figure out why he decided to stand and bang with jones.

Rashad did go for TDs. Jones just sprawled immediately and/or locked him up really quickly.

Why the **** didn't Rashad try some takedowns to keep Jones guessing?

Also, **** you Jones for winning.....

Happy with how the fight went. Jones can't finish everyone, and Rashad does know him better than anyone. It showed that Jones has great stand-up in the sense that it puts the fear in his opponents knowing that he can catch them with anything at any moment. However, he obviously has always lacked true KO power, but he can't be perfect. Great win to add to his resume, and I'm looking forward to the Hendo fight. If he can avoid the one big hit, he should take it the ground and win from there. I thought he should have tried to take Rashad to the ground more.

I'm curious to see the medical suspensions after this one. That short elbow to the right side of Rashad's head did a lot of damage. I noticed his right eye was very cloudy between rounds.

Like both of these guys and was curious who would impose their game plan. Good win for Jones and no loss of face for Rashad.
