Or it'll be " OH IT WAS A 1 IN A MILLION SHOT" or "The judges got it wrong Jones was robbed!"

If Rashad does lose, I would like to see him fight Machida again to see if he can avenge that loss. It's crazy he only has ONE loss.

Can't wait to see Rashad picked apart standing up.

Another fighter basically saying "The guy who beat me will beat that other guy and therefore I got beat by the best fighter in this division right now".

What if he is, though?

Either way Rashad will need to brush up on his MT skills and work some stylish takedowns.

The big thing is we've seen Tito break mentally in numerous fights, Tito was big strong and dumb. Jones is very smart guy who has both a strong grasp of technical ability and has been mentally tested last year and proved to be successful.

Well, if Rashad wins that means that Lyoto and Shogun have great chances of being champion again. I think we might end up seeing a potential of four two-time LHW champs if Evans pulls the W here.

Also...I fully expect Hendo to take that belt from Evans should he win.

And I don't think Rashad will hold the belt for long either, the UFC would probably give Shogun a title fight before they do Machida and rightfully so but I'd imagine after Hendo fights Jones or Evans that Bader would be next, followed by Gustaffson then whoever has the most wins between Machida and Shogun if Jones doesn't get another title shot.

He got punched in the face once? And now he's mentally tested?
