To be honest, reading threads like these really hyped up Shogun for me. Watchiing him fight though the main thought in my mind was "Is this the same guy all of the forum posts were about?!". Shogun looked like garbage against jones, he looked doughy and sluggish. I am not being a hater, honestly I don't know a lot about Shogun other than in the ufc 2010 game he's stupid good at everything. I don't know if it was Jones looking good across from him that made him look so doo-doo like, or if he just looked like doo-doo. The punches were slow and sloppy looking and his ground game wasn't good at all which is what everybody was hyping up, his damn "bjj" lol. I feel bad for Shogun, watching the fight I wouldn't be surprised if Jones didn't bust his ribs, or his orbital bone. His right eye swelled up so bad after the last elbow that I seriously think it broke something lol.

Did Herb Dean not say something to Jon near the end of the fight? Jon had his elbow on Rua's throat, Herb said something and Jon moved it up onto the face instead? Either way, pushing the point of a limb into the throat is completely different to wrapping it around and applying pressure.
I think what he was warning for was to not strike the throat, Jones threw an elbow around the end of the second round that landed close to the throat.

The elbow choke is fine I think, never seen it in the UFC but Machida used it to choke out some kickboxer in a K1 MMA fight a long time ago.
