ay casual fan, according to you then Chuck will bring it to any heavyweight in the world since he beat overeem in PRIDE?

this is MMA, anything can happen, fighters evolve, improve, learn new things, etc etc

im not ramapage fan but you cannot compare a rampage that lost via soccer kicks to Shogun 6 years ago...

As entertaining as the fight should be I don't really want to see Rampage win cuz then it's going to be a whole round robin; Rashad, Shogun, and Machida. It'll be fun to see JBJ wreck shop leading up to Machida.

I don't see how Rampage can pose a major threat to JBJ. He couldn't put away Griffin, Rashad, Jardine, and Hamill. He KOed a slow moving Chuck and Wand who decided to go toe to toe with em. Marvin doesn't really count cuz he was a feeder "even though he did beat em before early on in Rampage's career."

The question how JBJ is going to beat Rampage. KO or TKO and in which round. I'd be damn surprise if it went the distance. It could though knowing how tough Rampage is. Also JBJ seems to get tired fairly easily. He could get sloppy and you know what that means.

I'm pumped though!

Unless Page changes his style and thinks about taking down Jones this could be a quick fight or a long beating.
Anyone can win as long as they cheat like Jones does. Hell I'd be UFC champ too , just cheat and you'll get there

Shogun is a bigger test than Rampage for Jones and in all fairness, he's already beat one guy so bad he had no other choice but to tap to strikes and he's probably going to do the same to Rampage.

Jones smashes both guys in all honesty, his real test will come in the form of Machida, and if he beats Machida, I'll pretty much have to say that no one in MMA right now will beat him and he'll only get beat by the next generation of MMA fighters.
The only person I see beating him at the momenth is if Anderson Silva goes to lhw to fight him. I don't see Rampage realistically beating him but I wouldn't count him out of any fight and he always has that punchers chance.

Yeah, it's such a weird coincidence, Shogun gassed in Bones fight. And the Forrest fight. And the Coleman fight. And the Diabete fight. And the Overeem fight.

It's almost as if THAT'S THE REAL SHOGUN. He doesn't have a gas tank when someone beats him up. If this was the first time, I would give Shogun a pass, but that is who he is. He is an aggressive fighter who gets tired and loses heart when punished.

Stop making excuses. There aren't two freakin Shoguns who alternate fights, there's just the one. There always has been. If he wasn't in shape for half his fights that's his bloody fault, it's still the same guy that won the belt and everyone was raving about.
