Bones is getting the title shot!!!!
THATS WHAT I BEEN SAYIN JUST WAIT
MY BOY MUSCLED Bader, MUSCLEDDDDD
THATS MY DUDE
Get hype, son!
Jones is pumped, Shogun has his rape face on.
i cant believe they offered him the shot, we talkin march 19th little over a month i just hope he ready he looked fuckin on point tonight bader never had a chance so yeah forget my "hardest wrestling challenge" statement because he handled him without a problem.. D1?? D1?? fuck D1 anymore, the best wrestlers in mma will soon have never went D1 collegiate
jones is top 3 wrestlers in 205 division right now his real challenge is gonna be someone like shogun with sick muay thai and leg kicks.. throwin wrestlers at him aint doin shit but ending in one sided fights anymore.
shogun look mad as fuck lmao
man a month is such a short time for a title shot though, it's gonna be hard for either to get a good gameplan for each other but Jones should have an advantage with his size and reach
I've gone off Jones. He's become Carwin 2.0.
I want to see him succeed, but I also want Shogun to pummel him.
Carwin doesn't really seem to be a good comparison. Carwin was just a big dude with good wrestling who could kill a moose with one punch.
Jones, on the other hand, has (T)KO and submission wins, has the best wrestling in the division by far, is crazy innovative, and actually won't die of oxygen deprivation if the fight goes to the second round.
The most accurate comparison, IMO, would be to say that Jones is like a young Sakuraba.
jones is a young silva with wrestling fuck what you heard! wait till his standup excels, hes not bad but hes got years of getting better to do.. by time hes 30 its gonna be a fuckin problem. he threw same kick silva threw to knockout belfort, probably not as crisp or technically sound but with his length it'd be even more dangerous.. hes gonna be a serious problem im telling u
as far as short notice.. im worried for jones not shogun.. shogun has fought lengthy fighters, and truthfully rashad/jones both do have similar strengths like shogun said in an interview, wrestling/muay thai.. not to mention when he fought in pride they'd have 1-2 week notice at times and they fought at a high level the competition was rough back then
He isn't a top3 wrestler. Far form it. He's just one of the strongest guys in the division.
^^Who you think got better wrestling than Jones at light heavy???
anyway, i agree with jayoo, his most similiar to silva as far as athleticism and pure ability. If he grew up in combat sports and not just wrestling he'd probably be as good as silva on the feet. (still got like 15 years to get to silva lol).
Rashad is taking a serious L with this one
He won't fight Bones and what if Shogun loses
lmao always some way for someone to downplay it mad funny either he hasnt been tested, or hes just strong, or this or that
I was just getting my lawyer on. Dude has great MMA wrestling
Noooo, I mean personality-wise. I love his fighting style.
Everyone thought Carwin was a really nice guy at first, but he turned out to be a preachy, self-righteous, holier-than-thou cocksmoker. Jones is turning out that way, if you check his interviews and tweets and shit. Some people are starting to turn on him.
He's a smaller LHW, so I say drop to MW. He could do very well there, I think.
Plus, he wouldn't have to fight Marquardt.
I think he said he would change weight classes if Bones wins
The UE Tigers jacket is epic
Bones is already a heavy favorite to win in the betting world
Time to lay some bones on Shogun (no homo)
He had better hope that GSP doesn't move up to middleweight and defeat Anderson. Otherwise he will never see a title for the rest of his life.
