I don't give either much of a chance to win but I think Page would be harder to takedown and striking from the pocket would work better than striking from range with a guy with that reach. Standing I think we have seen with Semmy that it isn't necessarily the most technical strikers that beat him but the guys that get inside and throw with power to the head while absorbing damage. The kamikaze strategy isn't generally a great idea but your chances of winning go up against guys with crazy reach.

Jones has too many holes.. want me to count them all?

Both have a good chance against Jones, better chance than anyone else in the division. Any fighter with dangerous stand up who can keep it on the feet will give Jones trouble.

The difference is that when Semmy gets pressured he can only retreat or counter with his high knees and because of his size he is quite slow. Jones on the other hand can clinch and go for a TD whenever someone gets close to him.

Nonsense. Nobody has exposed any of Bones so called *holes* yet. Until they do, then they are technically not holes. You might think they are, but thankfully those thoughts only exist in your head. A weakness is only a weakness once its been taken advantage of by somebody stronger. Until then... pure speculation.

I generally agree but if you think about the Bonnar fight Jones really slowed down in the third round. So maybe if someone is able to take him into deep waters without taking too much punishment Jones could be beat in the championship rounds.

Rampage has the better chance against JBJ, he has the better chin and can stay in there striking with Bones without worrying about getting caught, he has one of the best, if not the best chin in MMA. As far as clinching, who knows how that would go... Jones has looked dominant in the clinch thus far but Rampage isn't no push over, I actually think Rampage is better in the clinch then Machida, since he is stronger.

The question is who has the better chance to pull off a win against JBJ, not who will last longer, and Rampage has the better chance for the W, where as Machida can possibly last longer.
