Rampage is not what he used to be , jones is like tyson in his prime.I dunno boys. I love the way JbJ fights. He has beaten the best of the best. And I surely can appreciate the family connection. But Rampage is a legit badass with something to prove.
This isn't going to be a pushover fight.
To be honest a lot of MMA fans have soured on Jones. They see him as being very arrogant and cocky and have becomed annoyed with his "god is great" attitude. People think that his whole demeanor is fake and they have begun to root agaisnt him. Sucess always brings out the hate.
Gocuse your right a lot of people I know who follow MMA actually cant stand Jones. But really I think that Rashad Evans probably has the best chance of beating Jones right now in that division. If this was 2005 Rampage, I would say he could have a chance but at this point I dont think he does. However I would be happily surprised if he did win.
Go I could be wrong but I think Rashad has better technical wrestling then Jones, I feel like Jones uses more throws to get people down. Like you said it can be interesting to see how Jones does off his back, much like how people were saying what Anderson Silva could do of his. Also I think that Rashad is a better boxer but overall striking may go to Jones because of his awkwardness, variety, and length.
I think that Rahsad is quick and elusive enough to avoid the reach on Bones and get inside. Then I think that he has the skill set to get him to him the ground. We have never seen Bones have to work off his back before. Rahsad has great top control and a BJJ BB so he isnt going to get submitted. I think that will be a great fight...plus the back story of them once training together, both being ex-NYS high school stand out wrestlers...I get excited thinking about that possible match up.
