P.S. Whoever stated before that Jones was gonna get pounded by Bader and KTFO...I'd love to make a year long sig bet on that one.
Honestly, some people on here are never satisfied. Some posters thought that hammil would bully him; he didnt. Some thought that vera would submit him or whoop him in the standup; he didnt. Some thought that Vlad would bully him around the cage and be an extreme challenge; he didnt fare better than anyone else did. Now bader is here, and those same posters are saying that Jones is still unproven and that Bader is going to trump him; and the thing is, even if Jones was to go out there and knock out bader on the feet or take him down and get a tko, THEY WILL STILL SAY THAT HES UNPROVEN. Fact is, nothing will please these people and no matter what Jones does, they will still say that hes overhyped and hasn't been tested.
