    Interesting observation. I don't think Silva ever uses feints much either.

    I think Jones is very different than Fedor and Wandy in terms of little fear. Fedor and Wandy moved forward got tagged and kept coming. I think the damage, especially for Wandy has added up over the years.

    For Jones, he can move forward with striking and be out of harms way pretty quickly, given his reach, so is not taking much if any damage.

    I do not see how Goose can beat Jones.

    As for Fedor, he had said in interviews that he is nervous before a fight, but when the time comes, he tries to be very focused and not think about anything.

    IMO Machida is the only LHW who still has a chance of beating him.
    Im im sorry did you just overlook Goose?

    Yes, but the reason he doesn't have fear is because he is a bad mofo!

    “The reason why he fights so fearlessly is because he really doesn’t have that much fear..." -Rashaad Evans
