    Kimbo> Rampage
    something of mention is that rampage has WAY better TDD than shogun and all of Jones' other opponents. That being said that is like saying fitch has better tdd than hardy when fighting gsp. when GSP or Jones want you down, they get you down.

    GSP is a fast double leg where as Jones' uses throws and greco takedowns. Rampage is very strong from the clinch. Jones has a huge reach, but will have to give up a little bit of it to get in to land his takedowns.

One thing I did notice is that when ever Jones went for a highlight reel move against Shogun, Shogun ended up taking Jones' back. Now if that happens with Rampage, Jones is going to be a lot of trouble and probably add some points to his Southwest card.

    I see Jones going for a spinning elbow, Rampage blocking and countering with a right to jaw. Rampage via KO in the 2nd.
    shogun never took jones back ??? i dont think rampage will even be able to land on jones. jones has the reach and speed advantage. i picture jones satying on the outside and landing jabs and vicious leg kicks until he gets more confident and then either go for a takedown (which he will get with ease) or go for the ko. jones by tko in the 2nd

    Man if this fight happened i would love to see Page win this and he has a chance much like Shogun did, I just can't see it happening it would be a brutalizing destruction of Page with kicks coming from all angles if you think Shogun torched Page with kicks and knees i am afraid of what Jones could do. That kid is so big and explosive he is a terrible match up for anyone at LHW.

    It'd be a good fight imo

    Rampage looked in pretty good shape against Machida, and even though he didn't land that many clean punches, its Machida.

    I could see Rampage stifling Jones' clinch game and lighting Bones up with punches and winning by tko, but at the same time Rampage isn't that fast on his feet and Jones could light him up with flashy moves and leg kicks/body kicks.

    Jones beats Page via GnP

    Page on his back is like a fish out of water.

    Jones by TKO rd 3
    Well said and I see Jon Jones MT actually being the deciding factor in this fight which as we all know happens to be Page's Achilles heel.

    Jon Jones by knee to the gut.

    I see Pages failure to check kicks well to be a major problem. Once Page loses his wheels from kicks he will be a sitting duck and Jones would pick him apart. My biggest concern is does Page want to fight? The best Page has a good chance to beat Jones, but I don't foresee that Page coming out/ even taking the fight
    Id pick Jones for sure. Id be rooting for rampage and of course if he lands he could ko anybody but Jones size and athleticism would be too much.
