Bader all the way. The Bones wagon is hitting a bump in the road come Feb 5th.

I have not been impressed with Jones lately, he has let his hype go to his head. His best win is Matyushenko(arguably his destruction of Hamill although he lost that fight). He hasn't fought a good striker and his jerky standup spinning back elbow is getting very predictable and has holes in it. Bader is going to avoid being taken down and punish Jones on the feet with superior technique.

Both guys can win this fight, I just think Bader wins it more often then Jones does. Jones has higher potential but I haven't really been that impressed with him lately.

Every Jones fight is going to be like this imo, until he finds himself in serious trouble against somebody. Until that happens his going to be dubbed as an unstoppable force, which at this point i think he might be.

Jones striking is far far too superior? You have got to be kidding me right... Jones shines on the ground from top position and thats were he needs to put Bader to win this fight. Either way I hope Bader knocks him out standing.

I think Jones' stand up is getting way overhyped. We've only really seen him against wrestlers. The two fights he has had against guys who could be considered strikers were Vera (where he took Vera down straight away so we didn't see any stand up) and Bonnar (a fight he won 29-28 IMO and where his stand up hardly looked dominant.)

I am also in the group that thinks Jones is going to tool Bader really bad. He has completely destroyed his last 3 opponents.

Actually it should be Jones vs. Lil Nog right now, not Bader.

Lil Nog also would actually pose a serious threat on the feet and especially if he get's taken down by Jones.

Bader is only hype in my eyes and he will gas out soon as well.

If you are really gonna pull that one then surely you mean Jones/Brilz?

Brilz doesn't pose the threat that Lil Nog does!

He should have won a close decision against Lil Nog, but he and Bader don't have anything to offer for Jones.

Lil Nog does and since he fought Bader and should have won, this would have been an amazing fight.
