    its the old Speed channel. Probably never watched that channel before, which is why they are turning it into Fox Sports 1.

    rumor has it that Jones will fight Goose at Fox Sports1.

    Then what?

    Glover vs. DC once Glover gets past Te Huna?

    Jones should then fight Anderson and go to HW after that.



    Jones was very impressive against Chael. Took him down 3 times in 1 round easily and Chael is no Joke in the wrestling department.

    Sure, Jones walked through Sonnen as a vast majority of people thought he would, but Silva is an entirely different animal. Stylistically Jones was a terrible matchup for Sonnen. Sonnen didn't even have a punchers chance against Jones because he doesn't have enough power on his punches. His only hope was to take down Jones and ride out a decision, which was pretty obvious early on that it wasn't happening. That or hope that Jones suffered a freak injury couldn't continue. Ooooh, so close.

    Silva on the other hand actually poses a threat to Jones. If anyone can pick Jones apart in the standup and get past his crazy reach its probably Silva.
    I agree that if this superfight were to happen, Silva poses a real threat to Jones on the feet. But Im still in shocked how Jones destroyed Sonnen on the ground and how easy Jones got him there. If Jones were to fight Silva, I feel Jones would just press him against the cage, get him to the ground even easier and impose his will. I would rather have no super fight and have these two continue to fight the top contenders at their respective weight class. Just my two cents

    Part Red; Since you are all for the MMA math; Silva beats Hendo, Sonnen out wrestled and GNP'd Silva, Jones manhandled Sonnen so Hendo would get smashed too by Jones correct? Why would you be interested in that fight and not the AS fight.

    As for Glover and Goose; Davis beat Goose, and Rashad beat Davis and Jones smashed Rashad so Goose will get out classed by Jones. Glover lost to Ed Herman - who lost to Mia, who got outclassed by Silva but beat Sonnen so Glover would also lose to Jones too correct?

    Do you now see why you cant just write a guy off and say Fighter X lost to Fighter Y so they will lose even worse against Fighter Z.........
    I totally get what you are saying bro and I agree. MMA math has Jones probably walking through Goose and even Glover. However those guys are IN Jones weight class. Where as Silva is NOT in that class and even Silva has some interesting possible matchups ahead at middleweight. So I see no reason for the UFC to force a superfight here. And with Hendo, I know he would be a huge underdog, but of all people IMO would be the one guy that would bring the fight to Jones and has great knock out power to go with it.

    then have Goose vs. Glover for next shot... possibly on same card....

    DC vs. Shogun/Nog or Hendo/Rashad Winner for next in line, if he decides to come down...

    Jones said he wants to fight a few more times this year, so lets hope he heals up soon so we can get the LHW division sorted out for good b4 he moves up to HW.
    Really like your setup. As long as Machida fights Jones next Im good

    Will be out less time than Belcher, that's for sure. 6 months out of training for sure. I'd say 10-12 months.

    If DC stays at heavy then I would love to see him versus Roy. That would be a very good match.

    How long will this put Jones out? Surgery then recovery what do you think the time frame is?

    A lot could happen. DC could go down and get a win under his belt at 205. Would love to see DC vs Machida if Jones is gonna be out for too long.
