Jon Jones next opponent revealed?

Quote:
"I had to postpone my first title defense against Rashad Evans due to some torn tissues in my thumb. My last doctor's appointment they told me I should be able to get back to full out training within the next month. I'm excited about that. I'm expected to compete against Lyoto Machida or Rampage Jackson in maybe October, mid-October."

This is retarded. Why would he still not be facing Rashad?

Hah, the UFC screwing over Evans is becoming so funny, its pitiful.

If Rampage wins. He'll take tons of abuse from Jones before getting TKOed in the 3/4th, or he'll get to the inside and land one of those gloriously deadly hooks, which WILL finish Jones if it hits clean.

Machida will either in-and-out Jones and frustrate him to death, or catch a vs Shogun esque beatdown.

As much as I'd love to see JBJ vs The Dragon, I can't help but feel Rashad got the short end of the stick here.

Also, I agree Bobby, I think if you compare peaked fighter vs peaked fighter in Rampage & Hamil, Rampage takes the fight, but I don't think Rampage will come in as sharp as he should because he' underestimating Hamil and Hamil will take the win as a result. I question Rampage's heart as is at this current venture of his career, let alone having to fight someone he doesn't care to fight, that if Hamil starts to out-wrestle him, I think Rampage will mentally check out.

Rashad Evans is the unluckiest + most pissed around UFC fighter ever. He clearly has class for not whining alot and slagging off the UFC. Poor Rashad, your title shot will come.

True! I think if Hammil can make this a Wrestling match mostly he has a great shot at frustrating Rampage.. just don't know if Hammil is a good enough MMA Wrestler to do so.

But I don't question Rampage's heart anymore. He acted the same way before the Machida fight and came out strong.

I think it's really just the training which makes him go nuts. When the Cage doors close he's ready!

But it's really a close fight and if Hammil can do what Rashad did, then he wins this fight!

With this scoring system even more!

Rashad has two sloopy victories under his belt after he got KO'd by Lyoto.

Rashad won two straight via decision and almost lost both of them in the last round, which he clearly lost.

If LHW devision wasn't so poor right now.. Rashad would be far away from a title shot in my mind.

These should all have been made by now.
