Fights like this make me so happy that I'm a fence-sitting non comittal Bones nuthugger. I can't wait. Win or lose, this is going to be a battle that proves SOMETHING that I already believe to be true. The ONLY outcome I don't want is a soul-crushing career derailing beating for JBJ.

I agree , He has all the physical attributes over Shogun.

He has better wrestling and is hungry and Shogun is coming off Knee surgery, sounds like a broken Record but that really is the key here and why i believe Shogun is going to lose.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

I will take that as a compliment!

And, for the records, i don't consider myself a nuthugger.
For me, the definition of a nuthugger is someone who has a favorite and he thinks that certain person is the best ever, no matter what. And, no matter what you say to him, his favorite is the best. It's near impossible to use arguments and have a bice debate with him...because his eyes are covered by nuts. lol

I consider myself a fan. A big Jon Jones fan, because i watched him ever since his debut in the UFC, minus his first fight and i was surprised and impressed by his performances. For such a young fighter, with such a young career - he clearly has proven he is a very talented fighter. I think he came an extremely long way since his debut.
No doubt, he will have his toughest fight this saturday.

I'm a rational person, i like using logic and arguments.
Maybe i understand why you would consider me "tame"...LOL again.

I am a fan of Shogun also. Of course, not at the same level as being a Jones fan, but i consider Shogun my second favorite LHW, as weird as it sounds. When i first started watching MMA, Pride was more accessible for me. And Shogun was one of the best, so, seeing him fight it was hard not to be impressed by him. He was a MONSTER!
Any MMA fan should be a fan of his: he is one of the most exciting and talented MMA fighters in the world ever. His fights are a proof of that. You can't say anything bad about the guy. He is a a role model for the young generation, in the cage and outside of it.

But, li'ke i've said, i am supporting Jones in this fight. I really think he can win this fight. He has the necessary tools to beat Shogun and nobody can deny this. It's all up to him.
I believe Jones will be one of the best MMA fighters in the years to come.

As far as the: "i told you so" and "i knew it" guys, who will pop-up after the fight, it makes me laugh. Not my type.

In the end, my advice is: enjoy the fight!

BELIEVE!

Same, I'll be rooting for Jones to win, but hey, Rua beating a guy this big, tall, and with such great wrestling would be an awesome performance to see.

then I suggest not watching. Jones is going to get demolished because his striking is so weak in comparison to Shogun, it's going to be amateur versus pro. JBJ will be the champ in 4 or 5 years when he improves his striking, but Shogun's time is now.

I don't agree with this comment, because you're assuming one thing, that the only factor is that if Jones fights his fight. Which is not the case at all, if Jones loses its not because he under performs its because Shogun is a better fighter plain and simple. Its not so simple to say if Jones fights his fight he wins and if he doesn't then he might still.

If Jones fights the best he possible can with his experience and talent than it is very well possible that Shogun can still win. The fact is that this fight can go either way, if Shogun fights at his best Jones might still win and if Jones fights at his best Shogun might still win.

I'm happy to say that Shogun will win by KO by the 4th. Either it's gonna finish by the 1st round or it's gonna be a back and forth war!

This week is going by so slowly, Saturday is still far far away. And it's for something that could last as little as 10 seconds or as much as 25 minutes.
