Phil Davis on the MMA Hour

I haven't watched the entire show yet, but I'm curious what the forum thinks of Phil Davis' comment last night that so far Jon Jones has taken advantage of the fact (or just been lucky) that in his (three?) most recent fights each of his opponents came to scrap and all met him "head-on"

I got the impression that Mr. Wonderful’s fight plan would be climb up onto the edge of the cage and run away for five minutes, with the possibility that he would launch a sneak attack in-between rounds when Jones wasn't looking. But then I have a vivid imagination...

I'm not sure how anyone fights Jones without meeting him "head-on" - it's not like you can stay on the outside and pick him apart with jabs. Lyoto had success with his karate attacks but I wouldn't exactly call that standing toe-to-toe.

Thoughts anyone?

Can't wait for Saturday!

I suppose he's implying people fight him more technically.

When did we see anyone try this strategy? I dont feel like he's faught any particularly amazing standup fighters. Lyoto WAS unorthodox a few years ago, now he's still hard to hit but is pretty predictable. Rampage hasn't showcased elite standup since that Japanese woman was screaming to introduce him. Shogun is a 50-50 cointoss these days on whether or not he will truly show up to fight.

Im a fan of Jon Jones and a lot of people on this forum have truly good reason to be. (ToezUp anyone?) But I just dont buy into UFC's hype machine. Give me a few more solid wins. (Lyoto WAS amazing but Bader is meh and Page is over the hill)
