Not what I'm saying at all. I think he wrecks rashad with one good hand. I don't think rashad is even that good to be honest (i don't put his skill set up there with machida and shogun). I thought it might have just been mind games (like what hardy does), until I read the new article saying he was much more hurt than he led on.

I dont think he is scared in really i mean he is pro fighter but i do believe he must feel Evans is his biggest threat or he obvs must have got the better of him training for him to feel the need for mind games / strategy.

Velasquez will be back

*Scared* - no f*cking way! The guy is full of confidence. He just destroyed the champion - and everyone put in front of him in his last 6 fights.

As far as who owned who in training - this has been talked about soooooooooooo much. I won't go there. There's always 2 sides of a story in a situation like this.

Evans is saying he was better.
Jones said he held back and didn't submit, because he was respectful.

Heeelloo!! Of course they're gonna say stuff like this.

All i know is:

1. Jones would send Evans to a doctor with a broken orbital (or something else broken in his face)

2. I'm glad he's taking the injury seriously and going for the best treatment possible, wich in this case is surgey.

And i can help myself but noticing AGAIN - how a subject like this is twisted in every way possible, just to try an make Jones look bad.
It's a guaranteed recipe of getting noticed these days, if you start talking about Jon Jones.

Cain was in a similar situation.
Just became champion and then was forced to take time off to *fix* an injury.

Jose Aldo opted not to fight at the beginning of the year, because he wasn't at 100%.

Quote:
Aldo said his WEC title-winning fight with Mike Brown left him with shoulder problems that persisted throughout 2010, and a bad back injury made things worse, even as he delivered two dominating performances over Urijah Faber and Manny Gamburyan.

"I felt that I had to take some time off to heal that and be back at 100 percent," Aldo said.
Every fighter needs to put his health first. Because this is how he makes a living. And a fighter doesn't have a very long career. If you don't take care of your body, he will let you down when you need *him* most.

I believe every small injury needs to be taken seriously these days, because it can lead to a bigger injury...and that one can also lead to another one...and so on.

Everything else is speculation.

Someday Limba you'll learn (like I have) to stop constructing giant debate posts and just let your fighter do the talking.

I believe fighters should do their *talking* in the cage.
And Jones has proved he can *talk*! He has an excellent *vocabulary*.

Other than that, it's normal for each fighter to give interviews and stuff like that. And, of course, everyone is free to interpret in his own way, whatever a fighter says.

Freedom of speech - liberty of expression. Right?!

But, when i see some *trash journalist-blogger wannabee* post crap like that - i can't help myself. Sorry.

The original author claims he's a journalist.
Showing clear animosity towards a certain person?! Let's say it's OK, even though, *journalists* should write stories based on facts, not personl opinions. But, this *douche* goes one step beyond and sustains his case by calling the subject of his *biased article* a *HO*.

That's just wrong on so many levels. On all levels if i think about it more...

And i stick by my opinion i expressed in my previous post: Jones is a very HOT subject for anyone to talk about. It can propel anyone from *zero to hero* in an instant.

PS: that's about it. I hope you understand my point of view and why i'm writing these stories...
Let's say it's a principle of mine and i tend to stick to my principles, while trying to use rationality and common sense at the same time

.....and a bit of BIAS of course

The problem is, by debating reasonably, you're actually lending credit to the journalist in question. Much better to briefly discredit them and not bring them up again.


Better just to take the apathetic approach on this kind of blatant journalistic trolling. Makes it go away faster.




on a side note, the one thing I hate about duck, is there is so little breast meat when it's all said and done. Spend 90 minutes roasting a 6-7lb duck and it barely feeds me and a 120lb girl.

I know...it's like he feeds and grows bigger from debates like this.
Final conclusion: screw him!

I preffer chicken breast or turkey breast! Much more meat on it.

Or a big fish fillet! With garlic sauce. It's heavenly.

Being an american I tend to eat non-poultry, pork tenderloin and various steak cuts are my weekly diet. Occasionally maybe I'll eat a vegetable.

agree 100% with limba, ridiculous ''article''...or editorial, whatever he wants to call it, to me it just seems like a troll post

right, JBJ ducked evans, rashad is the one who NEVER wanted to fight him and became all buddy buddy with him even though at first he didnt even want him in the gym

fact is most LHWs dont want to fight JBJ, not the other way around, most LHWs are scared of him, AS admits how scary he is, couture didnt want anything to do with him, griffin stayed away from him, i really doubt JBJ is afraid of any1

on a side note, khoveraki, its much easier to just sit back when your fav fighter is JDS, the man is too nice!

now to sit back being a JBJ fan? thats a very hard task, i dont know how limba manages it!
