RDA vs Felder was a great fight
I heard Jon Jones is bulking up for heavy weight LOL. Also Conor Mcgregor and Poirier for Jan23 is OFFICIAL!!!! #HYPE haha

I agree that Rafael dos Anjos versus Paul Felder was a great fight considering how short a notice that Paul Felder took the fight on. Also I wonder if a bulked up Jon Jones will look like Alistair Overeem and if Jones will still be good at heavyweight. Part of his advantage at light heavyweight was his lanky limbs and athleticism.

Jones has a high fight IQ. He's good at adapting and making adjustments in fights.

So you think he will only put on so much muscle in order to be at a heavyweight level but not a whole lot that he slows down and his athleticism suffers is that it?

Jones fight IQ is underrated. Hand fighting adjustments vs Glover Teixeira. Thiago Santos only leg kicked Jones a few times before Jones switched things up to counter it.

I'd compare Jon Jones to Lennox Lewis there. If anyone knows who Lennox Lewis is.

Yeah I know who boxer Lennox Lewis is but as I recall he's been out of the fighting scene for quite a while. As for Jones fight IQ I would agree that it is extremely underrated as he knows how to adjust during a fight and it one of the reasons that he's one of the best fighters of all time and definitely the best light heavyweight of all time.

That would certainly be an interesting fight but I think there are other fighters who deserve the shot more then McGregor or Poirier. Then again I might be wrong and of course Khabib did just retire and has defeated most of the top guys in the lightweight division. Not to mention there's the fact that Conor can never make up his mind on retiring or not.
