    Agreed. Imo he lost the Machida fight.

    He's talking about Glover having no wins against top 10 but you can barely call the Machida fight a win. I'd like to see Johnson smash him but I think he grinds another boring decision.

    In my opinion the best call in MMA history. I miss Bonanr as a commentator.

    I personaly don't like Jones but he beats everybody mentioned on this thread.

    He beat Goose fair and square although he had the most trouble with him.

    He will run through Glover like you won't believe but you better believe.

    Everyone with an authodox kickboxing stance will get owned by this dude. Thats why Lyoto was doing so well.

    A hyper aggresive unpredictable striker is what beats this freak.

    Now who do we know that fits that bill?.....

    I don't know who you are referring to but it sounds like Anderson Silva.

    However Vitor is a hyper aggressive southpaw striker and Jones beat him easily.

    By that token, even Jon Jones wouldn't be able to beat himself. =) He is definitely unpredictable as evident by his spinning elbows and that opening knee he delivered to Shogun, but I wouldn't say he is hyper aggressive.

    Although he is primarily a counter striker, I think Anderson would fit the bill the most. I only say that because of that complete onslaught he delivered to Leben in his first fight.

    In the history of the LHW division, only one person comes to mind as both hyper aggressive and unpredictable, and that was Pride Shogun, but we all know what happened when they met.

    Wand is probably the most hyper aggressive fighter in history, but not unpredictable. Vitor can also be hyper aggressive, but is very technical. Machida, however, is unpredictable, but hardly aggressive.

    I don't see JJ losing any time soon, and I believe Gus's best shot was at their first meeting. Gus was able to pepper Jones, but was never able to hurt him (getting cut doesn't necessarily mean being hurt). As Jones said, he prepared wrong for that fight. He probably underestimated Gus's tdd, and I doubt his will make that mistake again.

    For the record... I think Machida and Gus have the best chances of beating JJ.

    His name is Jon Jones.
    I'm starting to think he was born to do this.

    If Cormier turns up the way he fought Bigfoot I think he could pose a threat.
    If he fights like he did when he fought Nelson he won't last long.

    Not sure if Phil Davis will ever have the stand-up to compete at the highest level. With all the coaching he can get, just not sure if he has the striking talent/striking defense it takes...

    I don't think I've ever uttered the phrase "Oh wow look, Phil Davis is fighting that'll be fun to watch."
