I can see how Jones takes it...but I just hope he doesnt.

I'm not saying Shogun has no chance, but I don't see any way Jones doesn't win. There's nothing Shogun does that Jones doesn't do at least as well.

So the question is... if Jones does beat Shogun, who will beat him?

Well, barring the occasional lucky win...

not Rampage
not Evans
not Machida
not Forrest
not Nog
not Thiago Silva
not Franklin
not Couture

I'd have to say Evans probably has the best chance, but I still don't think he can do it. Phil Davis looks good, but he hasn't fought anybody yet. We'll see how he does in his fight against Nog.

Well let's put it this way. If Jones dominates Shogun then yeah, I don't see anybody beating him barring something lucky. Yes, Bader is/was a very tough opponent, but not top dog. I'd actually like to see Machida/Bones, or Thiago/Bones.

I wouldn't be interested in Evans/Bones, but whatever.

Shogun is the best proven 205er out there when he is 100%. Jones has huge potential and Im 99% convinced of the hype we will find out for sure after this.

What are you basing any of this on? Pretty much all of those guys, sans maybe a slower or less dynamic type like Couture or Franklin, could/would beat Jones.


jesus I hate the hype/bandwagon mentality. dominate a bunch of 2nd tier fighters and suddenly you're invincible. :uh:

The funny thing is, if I had made that exact same post about Shogun, you'd be all up on my nuts agreeing with me.
