    ^Probably lol

    Sucks though, I'm sure he doesn't want to fight as little as he does.

    I wonder if Gegard still remembers how to fight as long as he's been out.

    Hell, in his only loss vs King Mo where he basically got humped for 5 rounds, he had Mo's eye swollen shut and clearly did more damage.
    I gave that fight to him. King Mo took him down but couldn't do anything to him. Plus, Mouasi still busted up KM's face off his back.

    My fave fighters are Mousasi, Jim Miller, Werdum, Jacare, JDS, Belcher, Alvarez, Pyle, Glover, and the obvious GSP/Fedor/Wand/Gomi.

    Ain't no underdogs there homie :P

    I'm probably in the minority, but for my money I think Mousasi has the best striking at LHW.

    A great job by Jones still, obviously...wish we coulda seen that one go a bit longer.
    Jones was never rocked though, he was knocked off balance due to being hit while throwing a kick and Machida's pressure made him back peddle. I actually just re-watched the fight, the shots that knocked Jones back were all when he was off balance. He definiately ate some hard body kicks though.http://www.ufc.com/media/ufc-140-jones-machida
