I have a strong feeling that Greg Jackson is going to have a great plan put together for Bones to deal with Rashad. Jackson is hated by some, but is fantastic at implementing great strategies for his fighters to stick by in big time fights that have seen huge success. This fight is no different, especially since Greg is very familiar with Rashad and should understand his weaknesses better than almost anyone.

Oh, and Jones is the most promising fighter at his age ever.

Jones by KO or TKO round 3

This fight should be excellent. I wouldn't be surprised at any outcome here these two our the two best in the world IMO and likely the two best light heavyweights in MMA history thus far.

Both fighters have a lot to prove. I think Rashad posses a great threat to Jones. Rashad is the most athletic fighter Jones has taken on thus far. Rashad I believe has the speed if he is patient enough and fights a good fight to close the distance on Jones. It'll be interesting to see who gets the best of the wrestling. It's tough to pick a winner for this fight but I'm going with the underdog and saying Rashad pulls off the slight upset and regains his belt. Though it wouldn't shock me if Jones comes out and goes right through Rashad proving he is virtually unbeatable by any light heavyweight in the world right now. This could be the start of the biggest trilogy/rivalry in UFC history to this point

Rashad knew and trained the Jon Jones of 18 months ago. Think how quickly this dude is developing, he's going to be a completely different fighter. I see no other result but Jones mauling Rashad, and looking as unbeatable as he has against every other opponent thus far in his career.

I was just thinking how interesting the new dynamic will be around here when Rashad is champ again.

Yeah, by the current voting it appears 20 people will be upset with 38 'I told you so'.

I am worried, but it isn't about Jones. It's that I won't get to see that pretty new sig of yours after the fight.

In trying to make a prediction for this fight, I keep remembering all the pre-fight hype leading up to the other Jones fights- how the various challengers were going to give him his toughest fight to date.

Then they actually got in the octagon with him.

After watching Jones man-handle these guys for a round or two, there would be something of a pregnant pause in the commentary- almost as if Rogan had trouble processing what he was seeing- then he would always say something like, "It's a man against boys in there again. Every time we see him fight..."

A good big man will generally beat a good small man.

With these things in mind, I'm having a real hard time finding a way to pick Rashad.
