the only way i see jones losing is if he cant finish page in 3 rounds and he hasnt worked on his cardio because he has slowed down a lot in the later parts of fights including the last.

Of course Jones will feel a bit sensitive when he's seeing his opponent (also known for his antics) trying to look down on him and disrespect him in a way.
I think this perspective is wrong. Rampage is not disrespecting Jones, he is just mocking a typical Jones antic (not looking opponent in eye) which is seen by many as disrespectful.

Rampage gives Jones a lot of props, but does a good job of making him know his place.

Isn't mocking and disrespecting kinds the same thing?!

Rampage seemed alot more likeable in this interview then in recent memory. I think it also got under Jon Jones skin a bit. When you finish watching the Conference, watch it a second time around and this time instead of looking at Rampage when he is talking, look at Jones. You can tell by Jones body language and facial expressions that Rampage was really bugging him. he tried to cover it up by laughing when the crowd laughed, but right after they are done you can see his true feelings in his face. Rampage was pretty funny in this interview and unlike his interviews with Ariel Rampage managed to came off as a guy id want to kick it with.
I am probably the ONLY person that feels this way (And i understand it) but i kind of think that even though Rampage was lighting Jones up, left and right, it was Jones that made the tasteless comment. I just personally think that a fighter/champion in Jon Jones should not make a comments like "yeah there will always be excuses, like, you didnt beat the Pride Rampage but instead you beat the Actor Rampage". For someone that gets upset about Replica belts because they have not trained 3 times a day to earn it, he surely is insulting to the work Rampage has put into fighting. Rampage has put in the work Jones has and has done it for a much longer time. He has won the belt in the UFC not just Pride. Even since coming back from making a movie he still has gotten wins over Lyoto Machida and Matt Hamill. To say Rampage Jackson is "Actor Rampage" and not "Fighter Rampage" is a pretty good low blow at a friendly humorous moment.

Anyway, thats personally MY OPINION. I dont think you guys are wrong for not seeing it my way, so dont try to make it seem that way please. We all have our own moral code and see life from different eyes. What Jones said is something a keyboard warrior would say, fighters should show each other a bit more courtesy then that. Again... just my opinion (Dont take it personal Limba. I consider Jon jones still young and immature, which is what i attribute his behavior to. IMO he will grow out of it eventually).

I also think what Rampage did during the stare off is GREAT!! haha. Jones never looks at people during the face off, what Rampage did is the perfect counter for that. I guarantee it made Jones feel stupid.

im not a fan of Jons Jones but i not against him either, but he acts with much more class respect as a fighter compared to rampage despite some people thinking he is too arrogant.

when they both stood up face to face, it was clear rampage wanted to take the attention away from the size disadvantage he has by just doing something lame and childish. what a Dick.

Jon is going to destroy rampage with his reach and un orthodox striking. Rampage just looked to have a fat head and slightly over weight....


i cant wait for this fight and cant wait for rampage to eat his words
*runs up behind Black_S15*

WAIIIITTT!!!!!

*Catches up*

.....You dropped your sense of humour buddy!
