Can I get a finish?

As tough as it would be I don't think Rashad will be able to keep the pace Jones will set. I'm a Suga fan but if he doesn't finish Jones he will be finished... Just not impressed with Rashad's previous fights enough to try to sell anyone on him being champ again...

What if they both come out crawling?

Can we get a vbookie on who stands up first?

Rational discussion has no place in sports fan world. It never has. It never will. Thank god for that.

I actually thought about that when this fight was first announced. This may be the most awkward 10 seconds in an MMA fight ever.

Amen brother.

i don't follow any other sports but I often wonder if in football, soccer, basketball, etc.... are fans vilified because they remain loyal to a team that isn't the favorite and don't bow to rational arguments?

I wonder...has anyone ever heard of a case where the obvious consensus favorite actually lost?


TDK, quit insulting people who don't see what we see.

WAR Rashad

Man, **** that. I say what I want. I'm not just some 'blind fan' who sticks to says a certain fighter will win just because i'm a fan of them. I look at their strengths and weaknesses and match it up to the opponents strengths and weaknesses.

Rashad is winning this fight.

Rashad had trouble with the range of Forrest Griffin. Jones will destroy him.

I wish Evans wins, because I really feel sad for all that has happened to him (guy denying old friendship, coach favoring other, company sponsoring opponent)!!!!

I really can't stand how this all came around on him. The guy really doesn't deserve all that.

BUT: unfortunately, Jones, is VERY talented. He always enters with a new TOOLBOX in his arsenal, which makes predictions very hard for his opponents. I think it will not goto the championship rounds too

Hard for Evans, but Jones today is so illusional, I can't figure who will stop him!!!

Fedor Emelianenko: The one who doesn't fall, doesn't stand up

Fedor Emelianenko | Anderson Silva | Junior Dos Santos | Lyoto Machida | Carlos Condit | Frankie Edgar | Erick Silva
