Generation 3 2000 - 2007 - was the well roundedness of ALL fighters.

Generation 4 2008 - Present - Incorporation of all techniques (BJJ, Muay Thai, Wrestling, plus other art forms), focus on conditioning, and executing tactical + strategical game plans.
Most MMA fighters are in this category now, but only Anderson Silva, GSP, and Jose Aldo have achieved mastery at this level.

Generation 5 - All of the above + extreme naturally physically gifted traits. High Intelligence Quotient. Extreme mental toughness. Strong faith in religion.
- JBJ ???

Generation 6 - Scientific breakdown of everything (nutrition, training, fighting, blood type, disease, genetics - EUGENICS) and molding of the perfect fighter at a very young age.

Jon Jones is a rare exception in that he his humble, naturally gifted, and has a stellar camp behind him. Brock was a brute who was quite one dimensional.

So my answer is no I do not believe it is bad for MMA at all. He respects the sport. However he is still green and has much to learn. I would like to see Shogun take this.
Good post, but i want JBJ to kick his ass lol, just because when i watch JBJ fight its someone more special to me then Shogun

Sig credit to my Homie! limba!

Generation 5 - IQ and athletic prowess aren't synonymous. Are you saying JBJ V Shogun is will come down to whose thinking about god more? I guess Generation 5 seems partially correct.

Generation 6 - WTF? Please, go in to detail about this genetically made MMA fighters, especially blood type (wtf?).

In reatlity - The next generation = money, better athletes starting MMA at younger age, ***preventing the sport from becoming like M-1 style/boxing promotion

2 years ago, the guy was learning moves off of f*cking youtube videos and now he's fighting for the belt. so how the hell does someone so young and inexperienced come into the deepest, toughest division in MMA and run through everyone? he's a freak athlete yes, but something like this would NEVER happen in any other sport. it would never happen in boxing or basketball or track and field. you have to train for years and years to get elite at those sports..

so why is MMA different?
In no way could I see JBJ winning the belt as a bad thing. As stated sevral times in previous posts, he is not just some run of the mill fighter vaulted to the top. If anything, he was kind of held back from the spot light for a little bit. From the beginning his raw natural talent was apparent very early on and he has begun to be a student of the sport.

Normally I would not even venture into other sports but it was mention that this would NEVER happen in other sports. Aside from the boxing analogies, there are just a few others too name. Barry Sanders had 1750 total yards and 14 TD in his rookie season. Some running backs don't even do that in a career. Michael Jordan dropped 63 on the mighty Celtics during the playoffs of his second season, after missing 64 games with a broken ankle, Albert Pujols batted .329 with 37 home runs and 130 RBI in his rookie season. All three of those are freaks in their own respected sports, clearly showing that every now and than there are just special athletes that come along. Is JBJ one of them? We will see.

Its amazing, i dont see him anything like Bruce Lee but i think he is a perfect example of what Bruce Lee taught about to be the perfect type of fighter. To be like water and have No Style, and Limitless is your Limit,

Love this quote.

Lebron James went from Highschool basketball to the "title shot" so to speak. That's basically what JBJ is doing, he's that good that he can skip a few steps like college ball.

I see what you're saying but its not the same. Jordan, Sanders, and Pujols played their respective sports their whole lives, and even in their rookie years had already trained years to get to that elite level. 2 years ago, JBJ had NO experience in fighting and was learning moves off of youtube, and now he's contending for a championship.

If we are being honest Mma is still too new to be considered an elite sport with elite athletes. Pro wrestlers just can't decide I wanna be an Nfl qb then lead the Cowboys to a superbowl. In mma it is still new so people can pick it up later in life and still become a champion.
