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?
Don't worry about TDK man. Hes a professional JBJ hater.

Jon Jones | Anderson Silva | Urijah Faber | Benson Henderson | Rampage Jackson | Roy Nelson | Shinya Aoki

Bobby Cooper 2.0. Yep. You've gone there.
I hafta' say, I've seen some pretty crazy sack-swinging on forums in my time, but TDK's ability to hug dem 'Shad nutz has really lowered the bar.

It's extraordinarily entertaining, and I for one hope he never stops.

Just wanted to say you are at an almost unacheivable level of doubt. Its actually kind of cute though, how you just won't give up on your clearly overmatched Rashad.

what the hell do you people expect?

You expect a fight fan to just roll over and say "yeah your right, my favorite fighter doesn't have a chance" ...???

Let's not trouble Jones for this lets just give him his purse and throw in FOTN bonus too because anybody that knows anything knows he would have gotten it.


That's not a fight fan or an "unbiased analyst" (what a joke)that's a bandwagon p***y who wants to be with the cool kids.

Stick to your guns TDK , maybe we'll celebrate this weekend.

You expect trolling for guys like Rampage, Shogun, and Machida because they are you know exciting and not little bitches that sit out a year to protect their brand.

I don't believe Rashad has fans, just people who are dealing with some sort of undiagnosable mental condition.

Also it seems to me all the "cool" kids are on the Jon Jones bandwagon of HATE.

I'm a Rashad fan.

He puts on good fights, has knockout power, great wrestling, great top game, lots of speed, has only lost once in his whole career and I'm pulling for him to win even though it's going to be a tough as nails fight.

Well, I can't say I expected anything, really.

If I did expect anything from a "fight fan", however, it would be a rational discussion about the fighters in question: their abilities; their levels of success; the reasons for the odds being what they are, etc.

I am completely unbiased when it comes to the fighters; I couldn't care less who wins, and when I make a prediction, it's based on (among other things) the criteria listed above.

Not on the guy's attitude.

Not on what a fighter says in an interview.

Not on what he does at some retarded/staged post-weigh in stare-down.

And finally, I suspect guys are responding as much to the random/uncalled-for negs like, "**** YOU", and, "SHUT UP", that TDK throws around, as much as they are his homerific posts.

I am a Rashad fan as well.

I just find it extremely humorous how someone can say as if they have some kind of certainty that he will without a doubt beat a guy like Jones.

It reminds me of when Cooper was saying not only that Machida would beat Jones, but that he would beat Jones easily. It sounded exactly like TDK does right now. Even if Rashad manages to win, there is no possible way someone can be so confident about it prior to the fight.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
