Jon Jones: Most Overrated Run in MMA History
 
Do not believe the UFC hype machine. If you listened to Dana White or watched the UFC Countdown's, you would think that Jon Jones is the second coming of Christ. Yes he is doing a great job at LHW, but let's take a closer in-depth look at his miracle UFC run.

Gusmaro, Bonnar, and O'Brien (WIN): Okay great. If you are being in discussion for the P4P GOAT, then I would hope you would dispose of this filth.

Matt Hamill (LOSS): Hear me out on this. Jon Jones was having trouble in this fight, and clearly could not finish it. Out of frustration, he threw illegal strikes and lost the fight. Say what you will, a loss is a loss, and he is now 3-1 in the UFC.

Brandon Vera (WIN): A shell of his former self. Big name in Brandon Vera, but not much substance. The guy has a smaller heart than the one in my dick (2.3 inches).

Vladimir Matyushenko (WIN): ...who...?

Ryan Bader (WIN): Another overrated fighter. NCAA wrestling champ that can't wrestle for shit in MMA, really sad. Oh yeah and he got submitted by Tito Ortiz quicker than he lost to Jones.

Mauricio Rua (WIN): Shogun is definitely a legend of the sport and a straight killer. Hits like a freight train, great jiujitsu, devastating in the clinch. But lets look at the fight.... Shogun has kids and clearly wasn't focused as he was super out of shape. Not only that, his left knee is made out of peanut brittle and was not even close to fight-prepared. Jones didn't really beat shogun, he beat a 1-legged father who ate at burger king every night.

Rampage Jackson (WIN): Yeah this guy was good...... ten ******* years ago

Lyoto Machida (WIN): Probably the only impressive win on Jones' resume. However, remember he was tooled in the first round and simply just caught Lyoto. "The Dragon" takes the rematch easily, bet the bank on it.

Vitor Belfort (WIN): A middleweight fail who doesn't know how to do a basic armbar. Snore....


So as you can see, Jones' career is heavily inflated. Not to say he won't be great in the future, but I just don't see it yet. Lyoto takes the rematch and if Hendo can land the H-Bomb, it's over. Not to mention Gus and Glover have come in with a storm, I don't think Jones can hang with the new talent coming in. Discuss

Nice troll attempt

Saw this posted somewhere else, bad attempt at trying to discredit someone that has basically mopped the floor of the LHW division.

Plus they forgot to mention Jones' win over Evans.

Here you go buddy.

I think you forgot to take it lately...

This was actually kind of funny whoever wrote it.

I was thinking while he's dominated all of the fights it takes em awhile to put em away. I remember a quote from Bruce Lee awhile ago where he said that you have to put your opponent away as quickly and efficiently as possible otherwise it leaves openings for injuries or a reversal in the outcome.

Something to think about...

PS: Hahha...take two of these and call me in the morning.
