    I think Machida might have a case for making Rashad look worse
    He made the fight look relatively easy and that's not easy against someone as good as Rashad.


    As for the Vitor fight, he faced adversity and got through it and then finished Vitor. IMO thats impressive.
    Agreed. He played it a lot more cautious after the arm bar he could have finished a lot sooner then he did.

    Bones has beaten and surpassed what I thought he could do. I honestly think he will go down as the greatest LHW to date,with the names he is defeating,and with ease.

    Also,I find most records in Pride are suspect, I don't believe for one second fighters were always clean,not one second.

    There is no one else that can beat him at LHW. Not even Gus or Teixeira.

    I dont view those fights as him fighting at full capacity, and therefor don't count it against him.

    Jones had a busted arm the entire fight against Vitor, and he still dominated him, busted him up like champagne, and submitted him with a perfect Americana.


    In the Evans fight, he was clearly mentally uneasy; his first majorly hyped up fight that was also very personal since he was fighting a man that mentored him. In light of that, Jones dominated Evans with relative ease on the feet and dropped him 2 times. Evans is IMO the #2 LHW in the world and has been since he beat Forrest, so considering all of that, I actually think this fight showed an vast improvement upon my previous impression of him; his mental fortitude really impressed me.

    Anyways, thats my reasoning, feel free to disagree.

    Jones looks better and better every fight and is only 25.
    I disagree with that.

    You can't put an asterisk beside Jones' wins due to size advantage, IMO. It's a 205 lb weight class, both fighters weighed in one day earlier. As for reach, it doesn't mean as much if the talent and skill aren't there. Stefan Struve has looked impressive but we've seen other fighters nullify his size/reach advantage. Jones has some sick striking skills and is a well rounded fighter.

    As of right now, he is with out a doubt heading towards being the GOAT. But one loss and that will go out of the window as his wins would thus be discredited do to timing (past prime Shogun, Page, and Hendo if he beats him) and size advantage (not saying I would feel that way).

    When I log in the preview for this thread is "Jones wants to break Anderson Silva's" and a small part of me gets excited thinking finally Jones is trying to drag Anderson up to 205 so he can destroy him. Then I read the article and get sad...
