I cant recall the last time I felt someone was in danger on the feet with Jones and when he could have finished them (Chael is one of my favorites but that fight still wasn't entertaining) Machida was a nice sub but he seems like a different fighter since then
despite his variety of strikes I still don't find him fun to watch and I dislike him as a person so I just chose to not watch him fight again??
can I ask what you like about him fighting?? just curious (not trying to be a dick)
He showed a rock solid chin tonight and some new dirty techniques with the eye pokes, makes me think he was sick or injured in the Goose fight, hopefully the 2nd fight is as much of a WAR as the first fight!
I don't particularly like him as a person, I do love watching MMA and I am almost eager to see him get beat, it amazes me when he attacks the strengths of other fighters, like Wrestling against Chael and the clinch/dirty boxing game against Goover tonight.
His oblique (sp?) kicks are pretty bad but within the rules, his elbows are fucking nasty from wherever he throws them and he has a granite chin.
The eye pokes are terrible though I do agree, they need to be addressed ASAP.
If Goose cannot beat him in the rematch then I don't see him losing at LHW, Cormier is giving up way too much reach to properly utilise the wrestling.
Hope he one day goes to HW and fights Cain, that'll give the forum the ass whooping they crave lol
