Strictly business yet this is the kind of attitude thats frowned upon? why? I dont get it
It's the contradictory nature of humans today. They want absolute violence, and want to watch humans beat the shit out of each other, yet they expect weird professionalism and misplaced respect.

I don't think JBJ said it disrespectfully. They asked him what he thought Hendo's strengths and weaknesses were.

I'm looking forward to this fight. I'm a fan of Hendo, and believe that he has a legit chance at this win. JBJ better not discount the grappling, Hendo is a rassler not a wrestler, and balls is something that can't be quantified. That being said..............this is a big test for Hendo.Jones has youth and an awesome skill set of his own.

Dan Henderson a one trick pony?

Yes i would agree but...

If this one trick pony does land and JBJ doesn't get out of the way it's night night.

Dan 'THE OUTLAW' Hardy

Mauricio 'SHOGUN' Rua
Alexander 'THE MAULER' Gustafsson
Brad 'ONE PUNCH' Pickett
John 'THE HITMAN' Hathaway

If Jones avoids that 'one trick' for more than 2 rounds he'll barely have to worry about it cos Dan will have gassed by midway through the 3rd... If he lasts that long.

All people that decided to stand and trade with him. Shogun's chin got him to the point where his cardio was a bit better than Dan's. Point being that if you stand in front of him then he will catch you.

As for the one trick pony thing...I mean yeah its not the biggest compliment but people say that without saying it all the time. "Oh I just have to stuff the takedowns and I will have no problem"...translation They only have wrestling. Dont think the meaning behind it is any different just the phrase itself is not held in the most positive light.

I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

Henderson's great and I'll be pulling for him but Bones is going to pick him apart. We may very well see Bones get a trip takedown and ground and pound to the TKO.

I cant tell you how many times we have heard this in the interviews saying all hendo has it the big right and he wont land it then next thing you know they are flat on their back with their eyes rolled back in their head.

Its almost like a pitcher throwing a knuckle ball. Its like your mesmerized buy it . you see it coming know its coming trained to hit it and know how to hit it but cant do anything about it.

However jones is a whole different beast. I think most likely he will win the fight although I will really be pulling for hendo and think he has a shot.
