Your chilling in the airport, bored out of your mind. Might as well put on your world belt of ass kicking and have some fun with it.

Really hoping Rashad puts Jones down. Maybe after he is humbled he won't think he is Gods gift to the world anymore.

Jones Fan predicts the fight

I see this fight going something like this:

Round 1. Evans starts briskly until he comes face to fist with that huge Jones reach. The Jones kicks to Evans lead knee slow him down and Jones takes the fist round

Round 2. Evans comes out and attempts a takedown - Even if he's successful, he doesn't hold control for long, especially after Jones starts landing elbows to the top of Evans head and face. Jones starts to loosen up and lands a couple more kicks and maybe a spinning elbow. Round 2 to Jones

Round 3. It's about now that Evans will realize that Jones the man is more than he can handle and he'll either attempt to launch a go-for-broke attack or (as I suspect) he'll become very defensive and try to go to a decision. Unless he's VERY lucky, the go-for-broke attack will allow Jones to take Evans down where he will be sliced open by Jones' elbows. If he tries to hide for the remainder of the fight, it will simply take longer.

Prediction - TKO win to Jones due to doctors stoppage in the third/fourth round.

I just don't see that the 5'11" tall, 75" reach of Evans is going to give Jones much trouble. If Jones doesn't win via Doctors stoppage, he chokes him out.

Just because I'm a big fan of Jones, it doesn't mean I'm not right!

Oh be quiet, man. Another one of those year old 'mma fan' who thinks they know how a fight is going to go because one guy happens to have a bigger reach than the other. Gimme a ****in' break

What part of "Prediction" didn't you understand mate? I guess it's possible that too many jellied eels and Chaz and Dave sing alongs have left you angry - if I still lived in London I might feel the same way.

I'm 100% confident in my own MMA knowledge - I was at the Sears Center when Fedor beat Rogers and there again when Hendo beat Fedor. I took my first Karate lesson in the 1970s, boxed (amateur) for three years as a teenager and picked up my Shodan in Aikido in 1988. But I'm sure you know a lot more about everything don't you?

I think he just means that a minute to minute prediction of the fight is totally pointless.

And you are more than probably right... But as you have eloquently demonstrated, you don't have to a drunken West Ham supporter to make your point.

I think that Jones is so domanant at 205 that predicting the winner isn't a challenge

But thanks for the clarification

In his last two fights, Evans has impressed me. I've never been impressed by Evans, I wasn't impressed when he KO'd Liddell and I wasn't surprised when Machida tooled him, but I see a revamped fighter.

Rashad mixes it up, he's patient, he's in the best physical form yet and he seems resiliant to Jones' prefight smoke and mirrors. He's got the wrestling, he hits hard and moves well, and neutralised a very good, large grappler in Davis.

I think with the right frame of mind and right gameplan, Evans can outpoint Jones. UD would be the safest bet based on Evans' last fight but Jones is used to dominating, dont be surprised to see him unravel under pressure and give Evans a late stoppage.

Evans is a big underdog here but he knows too much about Jones and his camp for me to resist these crazy odds, and he's looked great lately.

I like this post, some great stuff right there!

I'm leaning towards Evans here, let's hope he can stop Jones and shake up the LHW division. Evans via hard fought decision.
