Pretty koo to see that nobody has written our Rampage.

Looks like Vitor injured his right bicep...

Think this entire card is going to be filled with KNOCK OUTS.

Lol seems like everybody dislikes Jones even though he is a huge favorite.

War Page.

Vitor said it best, Pages' only chance is to knock him out while Jones has a lot more tools.

Jones via TKO sometime.

Haha Vitor started with another of his fan-loving happy speeches and they cut it short.

Rashad thinks Jones will have a hard time getting Quinton down and his best chance is to use his height with a trip/throw, VERY interesting. When Jones gets in close though Rampage is going to be standing strong and throwing bombs, so it's even more interesting that Evans thinks Jones will win from a standing position.

In the pocket, Rampage is miles ahead of Jon and if Jon can't land that trip, he'll be getting hit a lot.

That got me wondering as well, the way i see it Page's biggest opportunity comes inside the pocket, which Jones is pretty good at keeping people away from.

Has Jones shot a double'leg on anybody else than Bader during his career?

lol at them editing vitors part, interesting picks, i would have thought it would be more one sided...

i pick JBJ by whatever the hell he wants...rampage just isnt as dangerous as he used to be, add to the fact that JBJ is a monster...i just dont see how he could pull this off outside of a 1 shot KO..though betting on that wouldnt be smart now would it?

especially since his power has been going down and hes gonna have to punch up to hit JBJ, and eat his jabs while doing it, he also doesnt have laser accuracy like AS so...yeah...i dont see how he wins

He actually seems to prefer the Grecco type throw rather than the traditional double/single leg. This is one of the reasons the clinch game will be interesting, especially since they both like it in different spots. Rampage (like Couture) likes the clinch up against the cage where he can work short uppercuts and punches along with knees to the upper thighs/lower midsection area. JBJ likes to clinch more towards the middle where he has space to setup a throw into half/side guard. Rampage is strong, but is JBJ stronger? And what about technique? Much like Karo Parisyan's judo throws, JBJ's Grecco tosses are hard to defend against because they don't focus solely on strength but a combination of strength, speed, and technique.

Wow, that was longer than I meant. Anyways, I think where the clinch takes place is just as important as who initiates the clinch in this fight.

With all that said, I believe JBJ will toss around Rampage and punish him on the ground should it go there.
