For sure JBJ has the clear advantage pretty much over everybody.

But both Rashad and Lyoto landed. If they can land Vitor can do it. Difference is he swarms and will not stop. I already tried envisioning this fight. JBJ wants to clinch and go for the guillotine/knees just like Overeem did. His teep is weak as he doesn't have the proper form. The build up is going to be very interesting.

I already placed a bet on Vitor so it's done.

Am the only one salivating over this match up?

I can't actually believe people are suggesting the Chael Sonnen fight? Why?

When Chael hasn't fought at 205 in over 7 years and is coming off a devastating loss? Jones already said that Chael won't ever talk his way into a title shot with him. Chael doesn't deserve this fight and it isn't even an interesting stylistic match up.

Vitor hasn't fought at 205 in a while, but he's coming off 2 impressive victories and I happen to be one of the guys that thinks this new, re-invigorated Belfort is a ******* monster.

This is a seriously interesting stylistic match up and I can't wait. Belforts hands are absolutely deadly and I believe his grappling at this stage of his career is highly developed enough to fend of Jons ruthless ground and pound attack, maybe for a little while.

Honestly, this is actually a much better stylistic match up than the machida, chael or Hendo match ups.

I'm real tempted to bet big on a Vitor upset.

At this point I don't see why Jones needs to be on the card at all.

I say let Vitor fight Chael at 152 and give Jones some time off.

Maybe he could take a business class or something.

Hay, sup! TBH Im really not interested in seeing Jones destroy either if them... ok well maybe Sonnen but that's just because he's a foul excuse of a human.

And somehow can't we get Jones vs Silva out of this O please God please! Well if I did believe in that crap that's what my nightly prayer would sound like.

I'm with you buddy, I said it a while ago but i'll gladly say it again as it's incredibly relevant now, Jon Jones is an arrogant boy, he likes to test his stand up against every fighter he faces. He stood with Shogun and Lyoto, both better strikers on paper than Bones. He will stand with Vitor, only difference is Vitor is like Hendo in that he will not be tentative like Rampage and actually enter striking range, but he doesn't only throw the heavy overhand, he has quick, powerful combos. If Bones stands with him it could end up being a short night.

As sad as this is to say, i'll probably become a fan of every fighter that fights Bones for the rest of his career. The guy who beats him will be written about on papyrus scrolls in quill ink and spoken about for generations to come. It's like killing the grinch.

Vitor has horseshit for lateral movement, he's at his best moving straight forward and using his speed. Not something he'll be able to do to Jones with his reach, size, and footwork IMO.

He'd be better off buying a lottery ticket.

The whole company is going bananas!

Vitor against Jones? What did Vitor do? Why not the Gustafson? Why not call Shogun? Why why why!!!!

They canceled a whole even, now they schedule a new one, with the lamest Main event ever!

Vitor will get crushed its nonsense that he takes that call!
