Rampage too Jones was afraid or leery and rightfully so of pages power. So it took him some time to get it together and Vitor hurt him badly so he fought with one arm and also didn't look to be in a hurry.

Machida can't stop the gnp and he'll end up on his back again. He'll wilt under it the same way as the first fight.

I wouldn't mind seeing Machida beat Bones but other then that I hope he loses to the majority of the top contenders. Ran like a coward vs Hendo and refused to fight him, he shouldn't have been awarded the win, let alone a title shot.
But Jones is as annoying as they come in sports and he is going to dominate Sonnen with ease so hopefully Machida can win another BS decision and then get KTFO by someone like Mousasi or Glover.

Rewatching Machida vs. Jones a few times today.


Honestly, I'd almost consider it a come-from-behind victory for Jones. He got nearly dropped in round one and had no offense at all. In round 2 he was getting tagged pretty good and ate a few huge punches and got panicked backing up, Lyoto stuffs two take-downs easily and then assaults again.

Jones blind rushes in to grab a double with his hands down, lands and elbow, and when action starts again he gets that choke.

I'd say a rematch would be very interesting. That is if Moose or Gus don't have the belt.

Lyoto landed some nasty shots on Hendo, he struck with the intent to finish. The intent to not get hit was just as important though, because Hendo can change momentum with short strikes and Lyoto is not a tank physically. Hendo is. All this combined makes for a three round fight.

Lyoto has been equally impressive in the Bader and Hendo bouts IMO, to me he looks reinvented and better than ever. This doesn't mean I feel the need to make a thread claiming he'll be Champion before the year is out though.

I would say his intent to not get hit far outweighed the very, very minimal intent of finishing the fight. In fact, he spent far more time avoiding a fight then actually fighting. Which makes me sick watching Hendo's epic run end with a fighter refusing to...well fight. It was about the lamest way to end his epic run. No respect...or in Brazil no hespect.
