i got jones winning this, i dont know how though. Its really hard to picture jon jones finishing rua. I think he will use his reach and wrestling to dictate where the fight goes but with shogun in shape its not going to be easy. I will be happy with whoever wins.

Brock Lesnar the baddest man on the planet?..... sure he is

i gotta go with Shogun but this is with the assumption that it is the same Shogun we saw against Lyoto in round 6.

I have Shogun finishing Jones. His striking is elite and Jones' striking...well... while flashing and unpredictable, isn't exactly Shogun Status. On the ground, I see Jones getting swept. I would be very surprised if he could take Shogun down and control him all night.

I'm backing Jonny Bones Jones to take this I think he will shock everyone (well maybe not to some) and dominate Shogun! Well I hope he does anyway

On paper its Shogun all the way. Although I got a feeling about Jones. His reach and wrestling is the key. If Bones utilizes these skills in the most effective way he can I believe he has a good chance of decisioning Shogun.

With the way shogun got robbed the first time with machida I don't think he'll even let it get to a decision

Not sure here. Wouldn't be surprised with any outcome really. It is Shogun's finishing ability vs. Jones' wrestling and physical stature. The longer the fight goes the better for Jones. But Shogun can finish it at any time.

If I have to pick I will say Shogun 1st round heel hook.
