I ain't putting up no money on anybody. I'm not into betting money. Not because I am worried about losing, but because I genuinely don't like the whole gambling culture.

Punks? For supporting/betting on another fighter? Oookay.

I wouldn't ever bet real money though, no matter how confident I was. Especially on MMA, it's too risky.
What the hell is the point in mentioning Machida? Why go there? That was 3 years ago ffs and you're STILL going to bring that up? Honestly, I expected from you.

I was referring to the people who pay a lot of money on the favourite as punks.

Why go there? Because it happened? The Rampage fight was only a year later. Where is the cut off point for fights being mentioned? Are we only allowed to mention things that put Rashad in a good light?

I also wasn't the first to bring up Machida in this thread.

Yeah alright no need to get facety, yeah?

Just don't mention the Machida fight, that has no relevance. The Machida that fought Jones is different to the Machida that fought Rashad back in 2009. The Rampage that fought Rashad was better than the one Jones fought too

The line is exactly right. Rashad has the smallest chance to win of any of his opponents ever. The chance is there, but it is even smaller than ever.

Look at your first reply to me, and you're saying I'm 'facety' ? ... Come on man. You can't get all riled up when a fight gets brought up.

How was the Machida that fought Jones different? Yes, he was a bit shakey after the KO loss to Shogun in his match with Rampage, but Machida looked DAMN good in the first round against Jones. Just like he looked amazing against Rashad.

Rampage hasn't looked good in years, but I think he looked far better against Jones than he did against Evans, and with that, he nearly finished Evans.

Jones just made Rampage look so bad in their fight just so you think Rampage was better against Rashad.

No, it doesn't work that way KRY and you know that. You brought up the fight to be spiteful, admit it.

The Machida that fought Jones had that mystique and aura that had long disappeared after the 3 consecutive losses to Shogun and Rampage. Before those fights, that mystique contributed to his success greatly. Look at the interviews prior to Rashad vs Machida. Rashad was paid WAY too many compliments and just respected him far too much than he should have, and it showed in their fight. Jones used his wrestling to eventually beat Machida, so he basically corrected Rashad's mistake, that's all.

Good to see you aren't putting your money where your mouth is.


Talk is cheap.

No, I brought up the fight to point out that everything isn't roses when it comes to Evans like you're making it out to be. I didn't even know a fight could be brought up to be spiteful, unless I was bringing it up to Rashad himself. Which I wouldn't, because I'm not an idiot.

Evan's gets far too complacent in fights. Against Silva, and Rampage. If he does that against Jones he WILL get finished. Can you really imagine Jones just watching Evans wobble about like Silva did, or miss a massive flurry of punches like Rampage did when Evans was on queer street?

You said it yourself, Rashad made a mistake against Machida by not using his skills to his advantage. He makes mistakes a lot. When was the last time Jones made a mistake that cost him the fight, or nearly cost him the fight? The 12-6 elbows against Hamill?
