So the opponent needs to submit Jon Jones?

That's some great advice

1.) Rampage

3.) Machida
4.) Maybe Shogun x 2
5.) JDS moves down to LHW if he fails in the championship bid. *Why not. He's not a big HW to begin with.*

If all else fails, Anderson "The Spider" Silva will come in and take care of the job. Fawk if this ever happens. That means Anderson Silva would have already beaten GSP and probably has an almost unbeatable MW defense record providing he defends against Okami, etc.

That would be sick.
Machida has the movement to avoid punches, but he's never really faced an elite wrestler. His problems are compounded by the fact that he doesn't have the one punch power to stop jones on his way in. Jones is so big he will do anything to get a hold of Machida and once he closes the gap it's over.

But I never thought of JDS, that would be one hell of a fight.

Not to mention pulling guard against a guy who no one has ever taken down is pretty damn hard. Most likely they'll end up flopping and making asses of themselves like Leites and Maia against Andy.

IMO the way to beat Jones is to counter his Greco and Judoesque upper body centric style with someone who has a VERY fast shot. Yeah he's faced wrestlers, but he's faced slow, plodding, drive through wrestlers. He has not faced a Sonnen/GSP/Phil Davis type guy who will neutralize his reach with a fast deceptive shot.

In my experience, guys with great greco are inherently weak against a fast mixed in shot. It's one of those rock/paper/scizzors thing ... they train their whole life in the clinch and upper body misdirection, clinching/driving through with them is suicide. You need to take their legs out, fast. Their reflexes aren't as tuned to that as a top freestyler.
His JUCO national championship is in freestyle he is more accomplished at that than Greco his body type just works well for trips and throws. He used doubles against Vera because of his Greco background. I don't think Davis has that fast of a shot either Rashad is a lot faster and sets his up better.

LOL ya great fighters they are. Hammil = wrestler , Vera = striker and Maty...who cares? They are all bleh fighters and went down after they were already hurt so actually pulling guard is different than what you think . Maybe learn some BJJ before thinking you know what pulling guard actually means
