    Is there a special name for this world that you live in? You clearly saw a different fight dude.

    I would attribute Jones' ability to win this fight not to Jackson but to Jones.

    I feel like we have basically seen this already...



    replace rampage with an old Hendo and the result will be pretty much the same

    As much as I understand Jones' sentiment on this, I dont _EVER_ want to hear a champion talking about who they do and dont want to fight. If Hendo works his way up to #1 contender again, then regardless of how Jones feels, he should be taking that fight.

Machida should have lost that fight on indifference alone. The Rashad fight could have went either way. I don't care how bad I get slammed for this, Bones wants NO part of Hendo. If he can't take Hendo down like Rashad couldn't, Hendo could very believably take his title. I'm not hating on Bones, but he does have some striking weaknesses that he makes up for with his length and wrestling, also Bones does not have KO power. If Hendo can neutarlize the wrestling, he come use his wolverine like chin to get through Bones difficult to handle combination of reach and odd nature of striking. I think we know how powerful Hendo is. It only takes one, and I think eventually he would land it.
