...and all four were finished with ease
At-least Bader he took pity on.
I'd be interested in a Shogun/Ryan rematch if I had to watch any rematches. Lyoto if he wins big.
Lyoto gave him problems, but Jones adjusted beautifully. faked the kick, made lyoto dive in to counter, smashed him with his "from the sky" left hook.
but you can't really say with ease. jones was frustrated after round 1
i get what your saying jones took some damage and tbh i thought machida was gonna keep that up for the fight and win while i was watching it. but i just meant how jones slapped on that standing guillitine and finished him
Jones vs Bonnar I felt worried for Jones @ 1 point. Lyoto was the 1 fight I felt comfortable about Jones...The man (Lyoto) DID not LOOK LIKE HIMSELF TO me. AT ALL
^Jones is like Silva now
he scares people and makes them fight strangely
that arrogant fuck
^DUDE it works if you see someone is scared/looks up to you.
When I was facing Dogmeat and some random young kid in a game of ball, you could play the mental game against the younger opponent that looked up to you to beat them offensively AND defensively.
EITHER way though, I feel like Makabreli framed Jones a bit, because his last sentence, though it doesn't justify his first assessment, does explain this is all for fun and laughs.
"Just having a little fun. I really do want to wish all 4 guys good luck this weekend. Do your best, Ill do mines on the 1st. "
wasn't making the scared comment in context of the tweet or jones' overall attitude, just what you said about lyoto looking off
silva doesn't really fuck with people before fights but they fear his mystique and he thrives on that
people stepping into the cage with jones and silva have already beaten themselves a lot of the time and it shows in how they fight
just a great side bonus to being a bad dude
but i do dislike jones' attitude; he seems fake to me
i'm now biased against him and i'll see the worst in any comment he cares to make
if he mentions buying a new house for his grandmother i'll accuse him of fishing for good publicity and fans
can't disagree with that.
im not even excited to see jones fight anymore.
the problem with jones is that he's a natural. naturals are annoying.
he's never had to work that hard. he decided he wanted to be an mma fighter one day and a couple years later he's looking like top 3 dead or alive.
i find it hard to root for jones, but i also find it hard to look away. guy does some amazing stuff.
people complained about the rashad fight, but the innovative elbows were well worth the price of admission.
I'll admit Cunn, I'm a bit biased towards Jones in that sense too. Amazing talent though.
just now saw this
you're half right, but i've actually heard that he does have ways of getting into people's heads before fights. he was sort of an annoying thorn in demian maia's side, constantly going up to him and bowing and such.
I know it doesn't seem like much compared to Chael talking about slapping your wife on the ass but when you think about it you're likely to be nervous as fuck before facing someone like Silva, and he's up in your grill the whole time showing how relaxed he is about the whole affair. It's the equivalent of not taking your stool after an exhausting round to mindfuck your opponent.
Anderson Silva is the biggest troll in MMA history, he's just passive about it.
Anderson is the best, Fedor is the Biggest*
only problem i have with him fighting is that he's not fighting anyone new and he's guaranteed to win
the creative, beautiful violence he dishes out is worth it imo
dunno if i have an issue with that, but i bet if he wasn't he wouldn't have the same annoying attitude
bj's a natural but he was real, so i'm ok with him
i'd rather jbj be a real asshole than a fake nice guy
as for your silva post, you have a good point
never knew about the maia stuff
come to think of it, silva seems to alternate aloof passiveness with aggression recently, now that i look at vitor and chael
he definitely fucks with people a lot in the cage - i thought he mindfucked forrest more than anyone, even maia
Forrest? LOL poor Griffin.
