Is Hendo gonna rag-doll Bones Jones?

Ok we all know what hype can do to your perception, think back to when Machida or Brock Lesnar were at their hype peak.

Well a highly unmotivated Rampage survived no problem with Jones. And Hendo has everything he has (chin power strength wrestling TDD) plus motivation, TRT, and a positive win momentum.

I think peoples realities are gonna get smashed like Bones head.

I wish. The plodding one hit strike attempts by Hendo are exactly what Jones is perfect at defending against.

Well no... Jones himself is an excelent wrestler and will not be "ragdolled" by anyone in the LHW division...

Hendo has a very limited amount of ways to succeed in this fight, his "H-bomb" being the most likely (In my opinion at least)

As we saw in his fight with Shogun, Hendo can go five rounds - but he did in no way look fresh at the end and the last two rounds were dominated by Shogun. Jones has show better cardio against Rashad.

Actually his fight with Rashad is a great example as to why Jones won't get ragdolled by Hendo

You couldn't be anymore wrong.

For starters, survived? He got finished.

No problem? He got his knees kicked in, cut open, and looked completely helpless for the 16/17/18 minutes the fight lasted.

Third, he moved his entire camp to Denver, to adjust to the altitude and was in the "best shape of his life" of course that's debatable, but I'll take his word for it.

Now, no Hendo does not have what Rampage had, his TDD isn't that good, his cardio is worse and while his chin and right hand are legendary his sub game isn't anything to write home about.

Hendo doesn't have the speed to catch Jones like Machida or Rashad did and his stand up isn't as well rounded as say, Shogun's. Take into account out of all the guys Jones has fought in the last two years Hendo is smaller than all of them, I'd say his chances of "rag dolling Jones" are pretty small.

Now, no one's unbeatable but honestly give me one way Hendo has of winning this fight besides The H-Bomb. He could always land it, but in order to land it, he has to get past the reach, the fingers that might be open, the takedown attempts and Jones' kicks.

I don't see it happening, and I think Jones is gonna smash him from the top or choke him out.

The only way Hendo can possibly win is by H-Bomb...JBJ knows that, everyone knows that.

Now I don't think people give Hendo enough credit regarding how good he has been at LANDING his right hand.

Does it mean he will land against JBJ? I personally doubt it...

This is the same fight as Jones vs Rampage except Hendo's offensive wrestling is better and his right hand is more deadly.

Hendo's lack of cardio is going to be a huge factor in this fight imo. I see Jones picking him apart in rounds 3 and 4 and likely TKOing him in either of those rounds.

Dan has nothing to offer him of danger except that right hand.

Gustafsson is the only fight that interests me for Jones, but I think he needs some more experience and he's going to get it in Shogun.

The bold part is dead on IMO...

My mistake in my mind I remember Rampage took all Bones strikes A ok and forgot he finally got subbed late.

Hendo can't even ragdoll Shields, and you expect him to do this to someone who is just a better all around fighter.

We all have our off days. Hes won some amazing fights also prime Big Nog for example.

He almost finished him early then gassed soon after, I hear he didnt prepare for the fight because he assumed he would just KO him in the 1st.
