good presser... nothing out of line, and i wouldnt really say they were taking shots at each other so much as they were just expressing themselves as they should...

only thing rashad brings is that he is another test... his experience with jones is the only thing that makes this interesting..

cant see rashad winning but hopefully he can test jones in a way that we havent seen before and maybe pull out a victory.. i would love to see rashad win and i think this is the first time i have ever rooted for him but that has more to do with my dislike of jones because i also dislike rashad. jones is actually growing on me but he needs a humbling and i hope it happens sooner than later...

I hope Rashad scores another KO in Atlanta and I get to witness it. As I plan on attending this and making it my first ever live MMA event.

Evens has a slight punchers chance but will be dominated up or down. Jones is so full of himself it would be nice if he gets knocked out motionless for 5 minutes. Hopefully if Jones knocks Evens out with an illegal spinning elbow strike to the back of the head he gets disqualified instead of the UFC jamming it down our necks on a highlight reel everytime the division gets mentioned for the next six months. After the Edgar Henderson card a coin toss may be a better option than hearing from the judges possibly why Dana White made this one sided butchering the headline in Atlantic City instead of a competative main event. Maybe they could get Dolly Parton to be a judge she couldnt do any worse.

at first I hated Jon Jones, but now, it's like watching Wayne Gretzky. I can't wait to watch what Jones will do in this fight. Rashad is one of the best fighters in the world and Jones is going to make him look like an amateur, can't wait! I hope Jones fights at heavyweight once this year too, I'm converted to a Jones fan, he could be the best there ever is in this sport.

I agree that the spinning elbow should be illegal. Yeah the spinning elbow looks pretty wild but it seems almost predetermined to be a back of head shot. The Bonner elbow was 100% back of the head. When Jones throws that in close quarters at best it might catch the side of the head but more than likely land in the back of the head.

For me I've got the hope Rashad is banking on just that move. Jones throws elbow, Rashad avoids and then lands in close range. I'm cheering for Rashad and I don't hate on Jones, but that spinning elbow needs to be considered an illegal move.
