I think Evans is like Bernard Hopkins in terms of aging.

He's still in excellent shape past 30, most would agree that he's in better shape than Rua (30) Rampage (33) or even Machida (33)

The Greg Jackson argument goes both ways. Evans is more experienced and also knows all of Jones' tricks

I'm 50/50 on this one (but rooting for Evans)

Rashad is winning this fight.
Have you looked at Bones' strengths?

I have no doubt that a guy who got taken down by Tito Ortiz and Michael Bisping will get taken down by Jon Jones.

Rashad was getting outstruck by Forrest. He's lucky Forrest doesn't have a chin.

Jones FTW

Range and gas tank is going to be a huge issue... Rashad always seems to gas after the first couple rounds... If it goes into later rounds I have to go with Jones. Rashad's lay and pray won't work on someone as talented on the ground as Jones... Snap Tap or Nap!

I was talking with a friend of mine and he was looking at his cell phone and decided to show me the odds again.

Our discussion changed from this fight even being close to competitive to how great the hype around this fight has been, but it hasn't fooled one group. Based on the current odds given there are one of two scenarios:

No one is betting on Rashad thus the odds stayed about the same - unlikely since a lot of people will throw down some cash on odds like this.
Bookies don't buy the hype and legitimately believe Rashad has very little chance to even win a decision.

Bones is going to finish Rashad and have to start getting ready for Hendo.

Mrsfan made me stop betting with real money a while back. I can't imagine why given my love of underdogs.

Don't tell her, But I'm putting $100 on Rashad. It just makes the fight so much more intense and fun to watch.

If it goes 5 rounds, I'll probably be sore the next day

LOL- exactly the same here. I always enjoy the fights, but once I get some skin in the game... Good. Times.

Posted this in another thread but I am becoming a Jon Jones fan. Quickly. Heck I even bad mouthed him in this exact thread but something is just making me a fan. I just thought about why I hate him and I couldn't think of a real reason other than the widely used arrogance excuse.

Thing is we could be witnessing something great here with Jon Jones. I'm done wasting my time hating and hoping someone will knock him out. Rashad fan as well, can't pick who I truly want to win, but I won't be disappointed either way.
