This is what makes the Rampage fight so interesting, because the little amount of kicks Rampage throws don't really shift his balance, his body punches are hugely draining, his punches to the head can rock anyone, he's very hard to takedown and can absorb a lot of damage.

Jones says Davis doesn't like getting hit, but I bet we'll see a much more vulnerable side to Jones if Rampage denies a takedown attempt and lands some combos. Jones' tiredness is visible in fights where he's NOT getting hit and he's NOT getting controlled, Rampage has an ideal style to frustrate Jones and punish him when he gets impatient, as well as having better cardio.

Never understood the once huge Davis hype anyway.
Jones' best work is by on the inside. Anyone who's seen him fight can attest to that.

He's great at controlling range and mixing in throws with strikes, but the just make him a multi-tooled mixed martial artist.

He does seem to fade at about the 11 minute mark, but he'll probably have Rampage a beaten fighter by then anyway.

As far as Jones goes, he has a pretty respectable chin...people act like he's never been hit before.

Bonnar hit him with a bunch of tight shots in close in the 3rd round. Bader landed a good right hand on him, as well as Shogun...Vera upkicked him right on the jaw. Jones' chin doesn't seem to be at all a liability and he doesn't react poorly to shots either.
