God, I want Rua to win, I'm not ready to enter the Jones' era. The problem is, I think it actually may happen very soon, Jones is very dangerous.

You all make very good points. I think there's no mistaking that Shogun is the best ground guy that Jon has to face. That's where the fight will be decides imho. If Shogun can get back up then I predict Jones will Rashad Shogun with constant takedowns

Jones' smugness is undeniable, he tries hard to hide it but can't resist the odd comment. 'His BJJ is solid, his takedowns are solid, his striking is pretty solid'... don't underestimate Rua's striking man it's only the best in the division, and light years ahead of yours...

I think Jones and others are forgetting that Rua himself is young and fast, not to mention more powerful. The skill and experience gap in this fight will prove too much for the 'new school'.

lol his bjj is not solid, his striking is not solid and all this will be proven saturday.

Jon jones reach,take downs and athleticism are the traits that will help him in this match.

Yeah this fight will go to the ground for sure. I don't really see Shogun submitting Jones because he is not prominent in using his BJJ to submit people (only 1 sub in his career), but he'd have to get up in order to win this fight or flash KO Jones.

Also, I don't see why people are making a big deal about his "smugness". No one can be champion not having full confidence or compete at a high level in anything for that matter.

It will be proven by someone drastically less experienced at both?

And what good is reach when you don't know how to use it? What good is athleticism when you are technically inferior? Jones will get hurt in this fight win or lose, Shogun IS a more dangerous fighter.

I dont know what people use to judge ones athleticism either. I would say Rua is just as athletic as Jones. He's extremely fast, possess some very dynamic striking and is very flexible.
