the mauler's coming for that belt. rematch! unfortunately, i don't think he has the power outside a flash KO, to put jones down. i do think he can pepper him for five rounds and win a decision though.

this dude serious right now? first he said cormier needs multiple fights before even sniffing a contender fight. now he switches up and says this? first off, gus was already the #1 contender and really didn't need to take this fight. this wasn't a cupcake fight either...manuwa may not be the most well rounded fighter but he's easily top 3 most dangerous in standup in that division. he was undefeated and finished all his opponents by KO within two rounds. gus KO'd him in impressive fashion.

he's already beat jones up more than any other fighter has. i'm a big DC fan too, but he needs at least one other fight before being slotted into that #1 contender fight. that's three fights before a title shot. i think that's fair, especially for anybody that bitched about lesnar getting a title shot so early on when the HW division was kinda shallow at the time. he also added a new wrinkle to his game...threw a high kick on manuwa that landed hard on his ribcage after feinting that left hook. never seen him do anything like that with that sort of fluidity.

jones wanting DC to finish gus so he doesn't have to face him

you're up next, bones. finish glover and gus awaits. no need to have another #1 contender fight...this ain't no grand prix tourney bloodsport shit. gus deserves that rematch.

there's also the fact that bones cleaned out pretty much everyone of note in his first couple years, and now he's in to the 2nd round of contenders, and therefore he should STOP COMPLAINING every time a current guy gets a title shot. THERE'S NOBODY ELSE, JONES! YOU CLEANED EM ALL OUT! geez...

Why? Sure, he had a close fight with Jones, but Melendez had a closer fight in a title fight and he didn't stay the #1 contender. He didn't become the #1 contender after winning his next fight, either.

Based on what, beating up a bunch of mediocre competition? A lot of guys have looked great in that regard, but went on to struggle against higher competition. I really don't see "top 3 most dangerous in the standup" at all from Manuwa. Not yet. That is something that has to be proven.

Quote:

He hasn't really faced anyone. His only good win was Jimmo, and he's borderline top 25.

Quote:

So, we just completely ignore what he's done at HW for some reason? Edgar can lose 2 straight fights at LW, drop down to FW and get a title shot, but the guy who was the #1 contender at HW has to win 3 fights at LHW before getting a chance at that belt?

My problem is that Jones should be focused on Teix, and also that if he does win, then he's going to need someone to face next. Does he really want to wait around for a Gus/DC fight to happen and not fight anyone? What if Jones loses to Teix?

I don't really see it. He's saying he'll face whoever is the better fighter of the 2, and also he plans on moving up to HW while most fighters look to move down. Also, moving up to HW is a bigger deal than the other divisions considering the big weight gap that the HW division has.

He's saying that he wants to face the best of the top 2 contenders... It seems like he's just talking shit. It's the typical Jones arrogance.

Am I the only one who isn't so eager to see yet another rematch so quickly? Gus already had a recent shot and lost. He can wait his turn like everyone else. It looks like Gus is getting the next title shot anyways. Dana loves him some rematches... Might as well do Velasquez/JDS 4 if he beats Stipe. Maybe rush Silva back for Weidman/Silva 3. Have GSP fight Hendricks again if he wins.

gusty and DC are both legit contenders. jones is just blowing smoke up his own ass if he refuses to acknowledge that. call it a whiff of cowardice, or call it a dash of ignorance / hubris... whatever floats your boat.

as for moving up to HW, i'm not convinced he isn't just bullshitting himself there, as well. i mean, sure i think he'd be able to beat some people, but i'm also just as sure that his body would fall apart... possibly coinciding with him getting wrecked.

and i'm not saying that this necessarily reflects on all that-- but let's just pause and remember that jones narrowly avoided losing his last three fights. armbar to vitor, broken toe stoppage vs. chael, getting pounded by gus. TBH i'm not really interested in displays of arrogance from a dude who barely won his last three fights. i mean, by contrast, bendo and edgar both knew how to keep their mouthes shut when they were skating along.

anyway, the UFC is a bit needy these days in terms of marquee fights, so i don't think it's too hard to see their motivation in the rematches in question.

UFC 171 picks? i'll give it a shot...


hendricks vs. LOLer - johny with the beastly strength, superb wrestling and dynamite for a left hand. ruthless robbie with the tremendous striking technique, diversified game, and lethal power. bigg rigg was the most hated wrestler in the country... now he's the uncrowned champ of 170. meanwhile, robbie's that rare fighter who's been around MMA forever, but is peaking fairly late in his career... something always fun to see.

and... it's that always-intriguing and unusual lefty vs. lefty fight for a belt.

many analysts are saying that lawler is a much trickier matchup for johny than GSP was for a variety of reasons. we'll see. what i feel confident about, however, is that no matter what happens or how soon it ends, this will be edge-of-the-seat stuff the whole way. prediction: i see lawler hurting hendricks at some point... maybe quite badly. but i think johny's incredible vitality and strength will pull him through. if he can't knock his man out, though, there is that danger of him gassing late. so, split decision for me-- i'm going with johny by KO, 2nd or 3rd round. but if it goes to the end i see ruthless robbie winning due to the more efficient striking game.


condit vs. woodley - ah, the natural born killer... the kind of fighter that makes MMA so godamn fun. and then we have the suddenly-evolving tyron, who's moving from lay-and-pray to a bit of a knockout artist. prediction: i have to think that despite his strength disadvantage, carlos is just too savvy, well-rounded and perfectly-trained to be upset, here. i also wouldn't mind seeing tyron's mouth get shut, since he's certainly been bratting it up recently... but of course, that's neither here nor there.


sanchez, shields, and OSP - i'll also take them as winners, due to extreme fearlessness, yawn-worthy craftiness, and sheer talent, respectively.


your picks?
