Shouldn't this and the other identical thread have spoiler tags?

Was gunna make a thread (with a MASSIVE spoiler alert, like it should have ), but thought rather wisely I would be beaten to it lol.

When the hell did the Rashad injury come about!? Can't find anything as of yet, and wow, even worse for Rashad if Bones beats Shogun. If it was the other way around Bones could/would be affective at heavyweight. Ah well, sucks to be him.

I was rooting for Bader in that fight too, or, rather, trying too. I was mostly busy being scared for him. Bones truly is a scary fighter.

Epic fight against Shogun, but I ain't laying down no predictions just yet.

Gunna enjoy Griffin/Franklin before I give this anymore thought lol

I think he's just arrogant in the way he beat Bader and the UFC giving him a title shot just because he dominated some top level guys and beat an elite contender.

The UFC obviously worked pretty hard to keep Rashad's injury under wraps, and had this fight in mind once they knew of Rashad's injury. Would have been interesting to see if Bader would have gotten the same opportunity if he'd won, I imagine he would have.

Before this fight, I was on deck for the JBJ train, but I think he is at least 10 years ahead of his time. He will beat Shogun (who I like) and retain the belt for a long long while. Jones is an absolute beast!

The spoiler wasn't a big deal, you were excited. Who could blame you?

Should be a great fight, this is a step up for Jones. The clinch game should be exciting.

Man you guys can't be serious he may be 10 years ahead of his time but some of you are acting like he is god and shogun is a regular man. A healthy shogun is nearly unbeatable. How the hell do u guys go a month ago o machida/shogun are to experience to now jon will run through shogun? The hype may be real but its ryan bader not a top 5 lhw.

1. Jones deserves it!
2. Jones has the skill-set to beat Shogun. Especially wrestling
3. Jones has the size and strength advantage over Shogun and could dominate just like against Bader
3. Jones has the motivation and confidence to beat Shogun

Shogun has better muay thai, but he won't attack like he did against Machida, because Jones will take him down.
And now, Shogun knows, MORE THAN EVER, that Jones is FOR REAL!

I hope there will be no medical suspenssions for Jones after this fight.

Fingers crossed!
