All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

I think I speak for all of us unanimously, when I say that after Saturday night, the ONLY fight to make for Jon Jones is a showdown with a Klitschko.
I dont understand why some people harp on "size". Nah, fuck the fact that Gus is an insanely talented fighter; the main reason Jones struggled is because his size advantage wasn't there and Jones is overhyped...
I wonder what Jones' record would be if he had a 77inch reach like everyone else in the LHW division? Probably never very good. He still had a reach advantage over Gus, I wonder how the fight would have gone if the reach advantage was switched.
On the other hand, I think he did answer some critics in terms of his chin, he did take some big shots, although those often have a cumulative effect over a career.
I thought Jones was going to win by GnP in round 1, really shocked that Gus stuffed so many take downs.
I thought it would be a repeat of Davis vs Gus. I was shocked at his performance.
I've said this about his reach forever. Like I said before, Jones won't make top 5 at HW or maybe even top 10. He has a lot of improving to do, the look on his face was priceless when he kept just "spamming" (ufc 3 lol) those oblique kicks and Gus was still punching him in his face lol.
I think its safe to say we won't see that "Not Quite Human" shirt again.
