Also Rashad landed some big shots, but JBJ was still in there, can we all agree his chin was tested?

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 think jones does have ALOT of KO power, but the only shot he puts all his "power" into, are his elbows. I think the rest are kind of just wear you down and not over commit to be countered shots.

What this fight proved is the best traditional (not greco roman) wrestler in the division couldnt take down jon jones. I dont care how many times rashad tried, he attempted a few times and they were shrugged off easily. I do think them training together did negate each others wrestling though, as rashad knew what jones does in the clinch to set up his trips/throws, and jones knew what rashad does to set up his shots.


Rashad vs Shogun
Lyoto vs Gusta
Bader vs Davis

Too bad Jones didn't get a chance to be on top of Rashad for a bit longer. Usually when Jones gets on top of you, your going to the hospital or tapping out.

So he could get countered and potentially lose the fight even quicker? You gotta look at the context of the fight. A fighter can't fight recklessly against Jones like that.

Jones' chin was tested back when he ate that illegal upkick from Vera, it was a very solid shot that landed flush and he just shook it off.

I agree but everyone kept saying his chin wasn't tested and the shots Lyoto landed weren't power shots. I am just hoping all of that talk stops now.

Good win for Jones. He fought a smart fight, and went 25 minutes in the octagon for the first time.

Also, at the guy who said Bonnar would be a challenge since he's fearless. Bonnar started looking good in the third round after Jones got tired from rag dolling him everywhere. Since then, I think it's safe to say Jones has improved a lot more, and has learned to fight more conservatively. He would dominate Bonnar again in my opinion, and he wouldn't gas this time. Not that it matters, no disrespect intended to Bonnar but he probably won't be getting a title shot any time soon.

Wow i never saw anyone say lyoto's punches werent power shots. Lets not forget Lyoto is the only person to knock out rashad evans, one of the only 2 people to knock out randy couture (Say randy was too old, whatever you want to, but NO one has ever beat randy like that, all of his fights have been competitive), and he is the only person to actually legitly "rock" jon jones. You can say rashad rocked jones but if u watch the fight machida fight, jones actually almost fell down so take that for what you will but i think machida is the most accurate striker at LHW and because of that, he hits alot harder then someone who is naturally a heavy hitter.
