Not a good comparison. Cristiano was playing football as a youth for 10 years before joining Man United. At 18 he terrorised Uniteds defence in pre season so they signed him up

He didn't learn his moves off youtube, and he was destined for greatness just happened that he made the best possible choice in Alex Ferguson.n

All I'm going to say about this thread is that I think it's pretty obvious we all know what's going to happen on March 19th.

I don't see how it can be. Every sport has their guy that comes in with little experience and dominates. Lebron James, Matt Ryan, lesean mccoy.... Talent is talent.

The problem with Brock getting the title shot was that it was so quick with little to no experience. Jones has 13 fights with 12 wins. Also, his most recent wins were dominations over some tough competition.
