Jon Jonesí run will come to an end - Rampage Blog

I can’t believe the shape I am in for this fight with Jon Jones next week here in Denver for the UFC 135 main event and light heavyweight title! I’m weighing 221 lbs right now, nine days out. I’ve never been in this kind of shape before. I like it! It feels good not to be like, “Oh, man! Weight cut is next week!” The cut to 205 lbs is going to be easy.
The guys here have got me in great shape, getting the right foods in me. I’m taking more supplements than I have before because I never really paid too much attention to that in the past, and everything has been perfect. I’m not going to lie and say I liked training this hard for so long – I’ve had one week off since I started training for the Matt Hamill fight in April – but I like the results. I like it that when I go for a run my iPod gets tired before I do.

I'll be ready for Jon Jones next week at UFC 135. But will he be ready for me?

I am ready. But Jon Jones is in the big leagues now, and he’s not ready. He needed this fight in another couple of years’ time. Jon Jones does unpredictable things but, really, we’ve seen it now bro, so it is not unpredictable any more. We’ve seen the spinning elbow four or five times, Jon “Bones” Jones. We’ve all seen it. Maybe Jon Jones is going to get me with some knees – I expect that, it is a fight – but I am gonna get him with my hands, too. You look at those Bambi legs and wonder what happens when I hit him.
Jon Jones is more “elusive” (or whatever that damn word is) than Lyoto Machida! Anyone heard or seen Machida? I need my own spy to just make sure he still actually exists. Before he fought that injured Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Jones was doing a lot of talking in a lot of places. He was signing autographs as “World Champion” even though the fight hadn’t happened, and he was talking a lot about his destiny or something. Jon Jones isn’t saying anything about this fight with me. We’ve not heard nuthin’ from Jon Jones since the fight is announced. For real, he’s disappeared.

I don‘t care if I am in his head or not, or if he’s confident or scared or not, because I am going to do what I have trained to do no matter how he is. If he’s intimidated, he is going to try to take me down – I know he don’t want to mess with me standing anyway. And if he’s confident, let’s do this Jonny Jones!
I know he’s got some great skills and honestly I am impressed how fast he’s learned – he is the future of the division in my opinion, but I am the present. Rampage is the present of the UFC light heavyweight division.
He’s a kid and he’s not beaten anyone like me at this level. The Shogun he fought had half a leg. He couldn’t move. Shogun was hurt before he even got off the plane. Look at the “Shogun” who just beat Forrest Griffin, and you tell me if it was the same “Shogun” who couldn’t move against Jones.
Five rounds is a long-ass time to fight. It is 25 minutes of getting your ass whupped, and that is no joke. Jon Jones has had everything in his career go right for him. The one time he got a little frustrated, with Hamill, he used an illegal technique that any fan in the stands could have told him was illegal, but he said he didn’t know he couldn’t do that. Come on, man. He just don’t know what to do when things aren’t going his way. He couldn’t finish Hamill, so instead of trying something else he cheated and got disqualified.
He’s a kid who’s had it his own way, and the little bit of time he’s not had it exactly how he wants it, he’s sulked and pouted. Same thing at the press conference to announce this fight – I was having fun, joking around, selling the fight but I was giving him props! I was being respectful saying he was the future of the sport and how I like his style and all, but then he started pouting. Why he pout? Because the media people weren’t laughing at his jokes, so he got a “sore botty” because they were laughing at my jokes not his. That’s what the English guys say at the Wolf’s Lair camp, a “sore botty.”
Jon Jones will have a very sore botty at UFC 135 when I kick it all over the Octagon.
Rampage seems psyched!

Iíve never been in this kind of shape before.
Even though I'm pretty sure I've heard that one before, I like Rampage's mindset. I'm really starting to look forward to this one. I hope Rampage is at his best and we'll see how jonny handles his test.

hmmm i know every fighter always say they're in their best shape ever, but i do think this time rampage is being honest, obviously i dont think hes in better shape than pride rampage, that was a beast like no other, but he seems to be in the best shape of his UFC career for this fight

he really didnt get bloated like he usually does between fights, he kept his weight down the whole time since the hamill fight, i hope this means his cardio will be much better and he focused more on more important things instead of trying to lose that fat

an in shape and motivated rampage is a scary fight for any1, ive always said that i thought rampage was done before he fought rashad, but he seems to be making a comeback, win or lose if he goes into every fight like this i could see him as a threat again

i thought JBJ would walk through rampage easily but the closer the fight gets the more rampage seems like a tougher challenge....could be all the hype though lol

still, at the end of the day i think JBJ will win, not easily, he will probably have his toughest fight yet, but it really wont be THAT tough, i expect rampage to get some good shots in but then JBJ will take him down and TKO him with some nasty GnP.....whats rampage gonna do? sub him? ha

Rampage seems to be in the place he wants to be mentally. It should be a good fight. Still it doesn't change my prediction for the fight.

One thing I found odd, this is one of the first times I have heard him say he doesn't plan on finishing a fight. He typically talks about KO, etc. He said
It is 25 minutes of getting your ass whupped, and that is no joke.
. Not that it means anything really, but it is interesting to note that he thinks it will go all 5 rounds.
