    I think Rumble handles him, and vaults back into the UFC limelight again. I would not discount AJ's grappling, for me his big question is still his gas tank.

    dude has great wrestling, but his stand up sucks and he hasn't impressed me much lately.
    He reminds me of another vanilla fighter who talks a lot...

    He has solid grappling...and thats about it. His stand up hasn't progressed very well at all. I can't remember the last time he was in an exciting fight. He's a talented, boring, vanilla fighter.

    Which is why he's talking shit to Bones, trying to drum up interest in a fight that nobody has any interest in seeing right now.

    It's very Sonnen-esque. And I think thats what bothers me.
    Yes. But at least I find his smack a bit less rehearsed [read: plagiarized] and refreshing.

    But thats what Dana wanted right?
    sadly, yes. Vince McMahon, too.

    Phil seems to have taken danas words to heart so now he's playing the game. He's trying to be the bad guy.

    I like Phil and id like to see him fight Jones. I'm also probably a minority when I say I thought he won the machida fight. I watched the fight with no sound and had it 29-28 Phil.

    I also had Davis beating Machida. In fact, his striking looked greatly improved in that fight.

    Favorite fighters: Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, Michael Johnson, Jose Aldo, Chris Weidman.
