    I'd say so. People look at his size and physical gifts, but what about his brain? He's shown that he really thinks in that cage and has incredible mental dicipline to control his body even when he's hurt and dead tired. That's something most fighters can not do. His focus reminds me a lot of Fedor, Oh I know I invited all kinds of hell with that statement. But I'm talking about focus not personality. When Mike Tyson was only 19 and had one of the greatest trainers in history, he was like a sponge and damn near unbeatable. Jon reminds me a lot of him too. He's a weird guy which adds to the equation, a non-linear thinker. I would be very surprised if he isn't a different fighter the next time we see him. That fight against Gus showed a lot of holes in his game, If he shows that he'd fixed those holes in the next fight, then I don't think his opponent will have a prayer. I think Glover should get the next shot and have Cromeir and Gus fight it out for the #1 spot as the co-main event. BOOM! You're welcome America.....

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee

    Am I one of the few that doesn't think that Bones is improving with every fight?

    The one problem is that his previous 2 fights he got handed MWs so probably decreased is need to train as hard.

    I think that played a big role in things coming off those two fights and into a fight where you are heavily favoured probably played a part in his training and motivation.

    Well you're the first person to mention him. Randy got mentioned in the first 2 pages. That's why there's a "other" option.

But I think Overeem was a bit bigger, so yeah that fight doesn't hold much weight in this discussion really. I actually thought he had fought Inoue later in his career.


    I was just a bit startled to see him as an option is all, Kevo. Of course, he's still a huge badass for starting his career in his early 30's and having the success he did.

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.

    Since we are talking strictly LHW how can we add Wand when his run through pride was largely at MW?

    Fedor would've wrecked Jones.
