Is that the first time in a long time that Jones has actually looked his opponent in the eyes during the stare down? Nice stare down that, Gustafsson is massive. Obviously doesn't have the same reach, but he's a huge guy. Nice to see that Jones has ditched the awful beard too.

Man I love Jon Jones!! I don't care what anyone says the kid has style!

I will also add that he said many times he wanted to fight Alex cause he's sick of hearing about the size difference with this opponents... holy smoke that's a big Sweden!! He's clearly larger than Jon right now.

Come the time I will be praying to Thor, the Norse God of arse kicking, that he puts his thunder into Gustafsson's fists.

Jones has grown on me since his coaching stint on TUF.
The staredown thing isn't a big deal, honestly. It's better than two guys looking at eachother looking like they're trying to see who can drop a deuce the fastest.

Gustaf looks pretty big. While I think Jones will win a decision, I do not think this fight will be easy for him in the slightest.

Nice staredown, it will help sell the PPV. Still I don't think JBJ will have any problems with Gustafsson, he'll end it within 3 rounds.

This fight wont go 5 full rounds!
It is wrestler vs boxer IMO and so eventually one guy will be able to turn it into his fight and keep mauling the other guy down.

I do not think we will see a repeat of Cain Velasquez vs JDS 2 here where JDS was really punished but still managed to go the full 5 rounds. Gustafsson has too much striking power against Jones chin and Jones has too much ground and pound against Gus bottom game IMO. Whoever gets the advantage will be able to finish it inside of the 5 rounds

Even better is, I think of all the rematches we might get in 2014. If GSP and Jones loses their belts I think they would like immediate rematches.

p.s. A few weeks ago I used to think Jones would win this fight but with Gus also having a decent but smaller change. Now I I am shifting opinion. Gus looks content in this staredown. I think he deeply believes he can win this instead of just struggling to believe it. It could mean he wont get intimitated when they fight and can fight his fight. Weidmans win is probably inspiring for all the other title challengers out there.
