    Jones could rise to the occasion, but as of now I'd go with Machida. In a few years that may change though

    Mayb a bad choice of words on my part. IMO he comes across fake in his statements and responces, i think he'd act differently behing closed doors. Everything he says seems rehearsed and like he dosent mean it.

    I started seeing it after the matt hammil fight but the best way i can try explain this is how in the lead up to the vera fight he is being nothing but respectfull to vera and seems like theres no bad blood or anger between the 2 of them. Then at the weigh ins he charges up and pushes against him then walks back away, very different from his normally kool calm and collected attitude. Brandon vera being profesional kept calm and wanted to finish the photo's as JJ just left.

    I still dont think my words have done the way things come across to me, but time will tell. when people are acting fake they eventually slip up and show there true colours.

    But for sure Shogun(which i think he lost but either way), Rich Franklin, Thiago Silva.
    Good strikers yes, but he caught rich franklin early in his career and thiago is good yes but is slow and its more power than great technique most thiago's ko's didnt come by him picking the other guy apart they come coz he throws bombs. Also i dont think stephan bonnars boxing skills have translated into mma very well. And i dont know if u saw him fight BJ but bj was giving him a beating alot of that fight n personally i think lyoto lost that fight.

    By the time it happens Jone might be a little more ready but as of now Machida should take it. As said before we need to see more of Bones to tell. Should be a great fight to watch

    Machida all the way. 1 bad night does not a bad fighter make.

    Machida via KO. I don't think Jones has much to offer most top LHWs yet.
