That would be logical if Bader didn't have terrible striking and Jon Jones' is much better.

Jones by whatever he wants.

I like Bader a little more then Jones, but I don't see this going Bader's way. Jones via TKO.

The majority also had Henderson spanking Shields like a little girl, and BJ Penn making Edgar look like a noob in Abu Dhabi.

I voted for Bader by KO. But I feel this is only likely early on. While they both have good wrestling, Jones' is better. The longer the fight lasts the more likely it is Jones will get it to the ground and work for a TKO, or a UD.

On the feet, he's shown obvious failings. Bonnar and Hamill were landing on the feet. Bader throws winging rotational punches which always give stand up rookies problems.

Bader by KO, rnd 1 or 2... or Jones by TKO rnd 2/3 or Jones by UD.

I honestly had matt hamill wining the fight before the jon jones take-down in which he dislocated his shoulder. his stand up is filled with holes he can keep his hands down and keep using his flashy moves, sooner and later hes gonna get ktfo.

I really hope Bader (T)KO's Jones, but more realistically, I could see this fight ending any way from Bader by decision to Jones by knockout.

I'm supporting Bader, funnily enough, and aligning myself with most of the members whom I generally find myself disagreeing with.

LHW: Rua, Gustafsson

I'm gonna say bader wins this fight, i know the jones hype is crazy. But Bader looked bad his last fight but he faced a true test which jones has never. I like the underdog and i also like the idea of the hype train to end. Lets be real here for a second Jon Jones hype is crazy even though bader has fought better competition and has never lost. Its unreal how much hype jones gets even though bader accomplish wise has done more or as much.
I know jones is a special fighter but this is not the nba or nfl this is fighting anything can go don't matter if your anderson silva or gsp you can be beat any fight. Where as a special athlete dominates for years until they get old.
